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.

      I gave the Whiskey stones as a Christmas gift to my uncle. He lives in Hilton Head, SC and I thought these would be perfect with the heat and humidity for keeping his drinks cold. I was right, my uncle just loves them and this is from a guy with everything!

              I got this as a gift for my husband since he is a scotch drinker. He was really surprised to get such a unique gift and absolutely LOVES them! The only thing we found was that when you use them for the first time, they leave a funny taste. I would recommend rinsing/soaking them a little longer before the first use. Otherwise, awesome gift!

                I purchased these Whiskey Stones as a gift. They arrived on time and I have been very happy with the product so far. My only complaint is that when I opened the package, the manufacturers box that actually holds the product was torn slightly. Obviously this doesn't affect the quality or usefulness of the product, it was just slightly disappointing to give a torn box as a gift.

                    This product was purchased as a gift for a highly bourbon educated connoisseur who has "everything". He was thrilled with the quality and uniqueness of the product.
