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.

Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey Stones & Gift Set:

The cubes were waiting for him when he arrived from a trip the liquor store for wine and scotch (mom's out of town). He was thrilled to be able to try them, but he was dissapointed in having to wait for their turn in the freezer. Big hit...I am number 1 son again...for a little while at least!

    I gave this as a gift to a good friend and he loved it! It arrived the day before his birthday so he waited to open it, said the package looked great, like a gift itself. So their gift wrap is really nice. His wife let me know later that he kept telling everyone about it at his birthday party. So glad he enjoyed it!

            I got this for my dad this father's day, and he loves it! They don't scratch the bottom of the glass and cool the scotch without watering it down. Great gift for a whiskey/scotch lover!

                These stones are unique and are popular in other Catalogs except the other Catalogs sell them for at least $10.00 more. I plan to use them as gifts and take each set apart and give them in smaller amounts, maybe with a glass and some whiskey. It's something different and will excite the recipients.-

                  I was looking for something unique for an anniversary gift for my husband and saw these and he loved them. He'd never heard of them or seen them and thought it was fantastic! They work perfectly so as not to dilute the beautiful whiskey being drank!
