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.

    As mentioned - great gift option. Very small and makes a great stocking stuffer. A sophisticated addition to anyone who enjoys a good whiskey or scotch, and wants it to be the same from first to last sip. 9 Stones is great for your average Joe. 3 hour "freeze" time is fast enough. Any more than 3 drinks in 3 hours and they may have stopped tasting the fourth anyhow.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Fast and cheap shipping. Tracking provided. Great!

                  The whiskey stones are a bit smaller than I expected but turns out they are the perfect size. My husband loves them for both white wine and scotch.

                    I purchased the whiskey stones for my husband, and they were a hit. They retain their temp for a very long time and can be placed in any drink that needs to be chilled. In fact, they can be tossed into a glass of white wine or champagne without watering them down. Pretty cool. Good price, too.
