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.

We all know the best way to order a good scotch or bourbon is up, but sometimes you want it on the rocks. Preferably, one large chunk of ice that is going to melt slowly, as to not muddle the flavors or leave you with a diluted mess. Something that is going to chill it, but not ruin its complexity. As an ex-bartender, what I like about Whisky Stones is that it gives me complete control over how I have my drink. It's simple, take a few out of the freezer, pour your spirit of choice over the top, let it rest, and enjoy. A votre sante... Cheers.

I gave this product to my boyfriend as part of his bday gift. He enjoys drinking a cold glass of whisky (not watered down) at the end of his day to unwind; which is why I though these whiskey stones would be a cute gift. So, we tried them after washing them and putting them in the freezer over night. we put 3 stones in the glass, waited 1 min. and sadly the stones barely made a difference to the temperature. We then added a 4th stone... nothing. Ended up adding 1 ice cube which immediately made the drink cold and refreshing. I read all the posted reviews of how wonderful these stones were which encouraged me to get them. I wonder what the others are talking about..? I do not recommend this as a gift for avid whisky drinkers :-(

              Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey Stones & Gift Set:

              I brought the whole set with both the glasses and the stones as a birthday/Christmas present. Only one of the glass cups looked like good quality, the other one looked cheap and almost plastic like. The friend I gifted them to was cleaning one of the glasses and it cut his finger, and then it just crumbled into pieces....

              According to the giftee, the stones actually warm up pretty fast. And he keeps them in the freezer all the time, not sure if it's supposed to be like that.

              I would not recommend getting the glasses, stick with just the stones.

                Love them. And my husband had never seen or heard of them. He loves them because they don't water his Scotch down. Handy pouch for keeping them in the freezer. Perfect Christmas gift.

                Love the unique shape of glasses, but smaller than expected. Husband claims stones don't stay cold very long. Like the gift set idea of glasses and stones together. Overall, didn't feel it was worth the price, but do not plan on returning.
