Cool your spirits

Ice. Makes almost every cocktail on the planet better. As we mentioned a few weeks ago, creative bartenders are even scientifically cutting and shaping their ice to make drinks better. But what about straight up spirits, like scotch and whiskey, that you just can’t bring yourself to dilute? The answer is Whiskey Stones. Made of Vermont Soapstone, and designed by Andrew Hellman, these genius blocks of grey stone chill quickly, stay cold, and won’t scratch your nice barware. Add three to your glass fresh out of the fridge, and pour your whiskey over top. The stones will make your beverage the perfect drinking temp in about five minutes, and will never melt. Available as a set of nine stones for $20 at
