Whiskey Stones & Gift Set

Skip the ice?serve drinks on the rocks!

$20.00 - 58.00

On The Rocks

Skip the ice--serve your drinks on the rocks.

These innovative soapstone cubes were designed by Andrew Hellman, a big fan of single malt scotch, who wanted to chill his spirits without diluting them. After much research, he came up with the idea of using natural soapstone to chill drinks due to its softness (won't scratch the glass) and its unique ability to retain temperature for extended periods of time. Milled in Perkinsville, Vermont by the oldest soapstone workshop in the United States. Glasses made in Slovenia & the Czech Republic.

Simply freeze the stones. Add three to your next drink, let stand for five minutes and enjoy. Sold as a set of nine.

Why should I use Whiskey Stones instead of ice?

Whiskey Stones are ideal for drinking with high quality whiskey because they keep it at the perfect sipping temperature (50 degrees), whereas ice cubes can make the whiskey too cold and ruin the flavor.

A handful of ice will take a drink to just under 40 degrees, and to deep freeze a drink quickly, there is nothing better. But some drinks you neither want to dilute nor deep freeze. Temperatures in the high 30s are far too cold for good whiskey. Reason being that the wood oils in the whiskey, which have leached into the liquid from the carefully selected cask it was aged in and which carry all the flavor, tend to congeal and "close down" the flavor of the drink itself when the temperature goes below 50. The stones are specifically designed to "take the edge off without diluting or closing down the flavor."

Specifically, 3 stones in a glass containing 2-3 oz. will take the liquid temp from mid-70s (room temperature) to the 50s. Not designed for use with a large volume of liquid.

    The glasses are the perfect size for an evening drink. And I hate my Irish whiskey watered down! The rocks are perfect to keep it cold. I love it!

          Great novel item and looks very nice but in my own humble opinion, it doesn't cool the drinks all that well, unless you use a lot of 'em!

          Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey Stones & Gift Set:

          Loved the idea but the stones weren't that cold to the touch when removing from the freezer and they did not chill the beverages to our liking. Will definitely be on the lookout for this type of product that will work for "on the rocks" beverages.

              Gave this as a gift to an avid scotch drinker, and he loved it!!! Better than the plastic ones he used to use, and don't leave a funny plastic taste.

              I bought this for my boyfriend because he is a big fan of whiskey, scotch, etc. We found that the stones won't really chill a room temperature liquid, but it will keep cold beverages cold. We still like the product and think they are fun and different, just that one little thing is a bummer.

                These stones are perfect when you do not want ice to dilute your drink. They stay cold, keep your drink chilled and look intriguing in your glass. They are my husbands new "toy" for his occasional night cap.
