Whiskey stones have become a popular alternative to ice for several reasons, but the most obvious benefit is that your drink doesn’t get diluted from melting ice cubes. Then there’s the benefit of reusing them, over and over and over again. And the lack of mess. And the portability — you can take them anywhere without having to worry about melting or keeping them cold. Also, they just add a touch of visual sophistication sitting there in your glass. It’s why whiskey rock sets have become a popular gift for any number of occasions. Here are some good ones to consider.
Searching for the perfect gift can be a challenge. We’ve all encountered a friend, family member, or associate who’s impossible to buy for. What to do? You can always go out and get the proverbial gift certificate. Or you can try something with a little more pizazz. Here’s a unique idea that just might fill some of those voids and make yours a memorable and much-appreciated tribute. You may even keep one for yourself. It’s a cool gift that not only keeps on giving but doesn’t take anything away – whiskey stones. Not familiar with them? Now is your opportunity to get acquainted.
