They are ice cube shaped rocks made from either Soapstone or Granite and are high in quality and are made for the very reason of keeping your drink cold without watering it down over time like a traditional ice cube does.
They are known for being perfect for whiskey but are perfect for any beverage. Another common name for them is Whiskey rocks.
How do they work?
It’s actually really simple, you place them in your freezer and whenever you have a nice drink you place them in, they will keep the beverage very cold for a long period of time and will never water it down and cause the alcohol or other drink to lose its integrity.
The corners of the stones are rounded which ensure you will not damage your glassware in anyway.
Our most popular in store come in a set, so when you have friends over you have plenty of extras for them to use. Some people worry about if they are safe and the answer is yes. All whiskey stones are FDA approved for use and will never react with household solvents like alcohol or detergents.
The major benefit of them is the fact that you can reuse them over and over again. Simply rinse them off, dry them and put them straight back into the freezer for the next time you use them.
Everyone agrees that these are perfect for people who love ice in their drink but hate when the ice gets in the way or changes the flavour, these sit in the bottom of the glass and will never change your beverage again.
There is no secret that when this happens you lose the entire integrity of your beverage, that’s where we come in.
You can now enjoy your alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage for hours on end and the flavour will never change, simply drop some of these whiskey rocks into it and you are good to go.
Where did they originate from? Below you will find an awesome video about the history of them, they have come a long way since and are now produced all over the world in both soapstone and granite styles.
What did you think of that? Pretty awesome isn’t it. One thing that most people love about them is that they have rounded edges, this is critical to ensure they not only look aesthetic, but also do not scratch your favourite glassware.
You will notice that we have 4 different colours to choose from and it’s up to you which one you would like. They are all the same and perform the exact same so it comes down to personal preference on what colour you think looks the best.
Our most popular is the Dark Grey Whisky Rocks – People find that these are the most aesthetically pleasing when used in their alcohol. A common mistake is to think that they are only meant for one type of drink - This is incorrect, they can be used for any beverage that you want to keep cold.
Kids love them to, it gives them something to keep entertained with, just make sure you don’t give them to the little ones who may try and swallow them.
Overall they are fantastic for anyone enjoys a nice cold drink (all of us), once you use them you will wonder why you didn’t make the switch from traditional ice cubes sooner.
