Chill your whisky without watering it down with these soapstone rocks
A slurp of good whisky
conjures images of rugged, windswept landscapes, rich earthy ingredients, and centuries-old craftsmanship (depending on how much you’ve had). But drop a couple of ice cubes into the mix and all that heady imagery becomes, well... a bit watered down.
Now, some argue that you shouldn’t chill whisky at all. Others argue it’s essential. But where we can all agree is that no one likes their tipple diluted by frozen tap water. So for those whisky drinkers who like it cold we’ve found a suitably rugged middle ground; and some remarkable glasses to boot.
Store the stones in their bag
The Whisky Lover Set
includes six stones, hewn by one of the oldest soapstone workshops in the US. Store them in your freezer in their tough muslin bag and when you’re ready for a drink, pop a couple (gently) into your glass. Pour over your whisky and they’ll chill it like any ice cube, but leave the rich, complex flavours completely unaltered.
And when it comes to selecting the perfect whisky glass
, the hard work has been done for you. Because this stylish set comes with two handblown lead-free crystal tumblers
. They even tilt inwards or outwards; making it easier to remember whose glass is whose (handy after a couple of drams).
Even exponents of lukewarm whisky will agree this centuries-old Scandinavian trick looks effortlessly cool. And it'll fuel all of those rugged, windswept imaginings before the amber stuff has even passed your lips. Cheers!
