Whiskey Stones Keep Drinks Stiff


By Cari Martens

Want to chill your favorite spirits without diluting them? We discovered a new product that lets you do just that. They’re called Whiskey Stones.

Made in Vermont, Whiskey Stones are made from natural soapstone by craftsmen working in the oldest soapstone workshop in the U.S.

The stones are nonporous, and the manufacturer claims they will impart neither flavor nor odor. More gentle than ice, Whiskey Stones can be used to cool down a stiff drink just enough to take the edge off, but not enough to alter the flavor.

The stones are meant to be stored in the freezer for at least four hours before use. A set of 9 stones, packaged in a gift box runs about $20. We found them at Delight.com.

Now you can sip your favorite poison on the ‘rocks’ (literally) at a leisurely pace, with no worries of it getting all watery. Pretty cool.
