Informed whiskey consumers advise adding at least one ice cube per glass to release the aromas. The Whiskey stone is the ideal solution for refreshing this strong alcohol without diluting it and without risking altering its taste during tasting. It's the ideal bar accessory to respond to purists who will tell you that it's unthinkable to put ice cubes in a Glenfiddich, a Jack Daniels or a Ballantine's!
Whiskey Stones for Whiskey on the rocks…
Whiskey stones are natural reusable ice cubes cut from non-porous granite. Placed in the freezer between two uses, they restore the cold little by little without diluting the contents of the glass. These cubes with rounded edges can also be used endlessly to cool a cocktail or any type of alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink.
Their use is easy for bartenders who just need to handle them with an ice tongs and rinse/sterilize them between each customer. They also bring an original touch to the drinks and are very appreciated by customers. 2 to 4 stones can cool the contents of a classic whiskey glass by approximately 5 to 10°C.
The different Whiskey Stones
Depending on the block of granite from which they come, Whiskey stones can take on different colors (pink, white, dark gray, black, red, etc.). They can also be cut from other types of non-porous stones (Finnish soapstone, soapstone, etc.). Some cubes are available in more modern and designer materials such as stainless steel (plated or not) and in original shapes (cylindrical, bee cell, heart, die, etc.). Le Coin du Barman has selected premium quality models for you. All you have to do is select the ones that suit you. The stones are sold in batches (6, 9, etc.) but also in a box (with pliers included), an excellent gift idea for a Whiskey lover.
