If you like sipping with these stones, why not size up? Whisky Stones® MAX provide the same cooling effect in a bigger size.

Birchbox Breakdown

When you need a stiff drink to unwind, nothing should come between you and your spirit of choice. Unlike ice, which spurs you to throw back your rye before it gets watered down, pre-chilled Whisky Stones® won’t melt. Made from Vermont soapstone, the non-porous cubes won’t absorb or alter the essence of whatever you’re sipping. They’re an ingenious way to keep your spirit chilled and unadulterated.

How it Works

Milled in the oldest soapstone workshop in the US, these cubes keep spirits cool without diluting them (or scratching your rocks glass). Soapstone can retain temperature longer than ice, so three pre-chilled stones in a shot or two of your choice liquor will keep it cool for at least half an hour.

How to Use

Place bag of stones in freezer for four hours. Add three of them to a two to three ounce drink and let stand for five minutes before imbibing. Sip that single malt deliberately—you’ve got the time.

Not that the product isnt great but one of my friends thought it was a suger cube I put in the absinth and then broke his tooth. His fault, not birchbox

These stones are completely different than what I thought they were going to be. I got these for my Dad for Father's Day and he loved them!

Purchased as gift for the boyfriend.
Purchased

He is a bourbon connoisseur and dislikes ice in his drink, but also likes cold bourbon. He stores his fancy schmancy bourbons in a glass case that he is just so proud of (and I'd love to move to a more hidden locale in the apartment), thus they are not refrigerated. I thought this would be an excellent gift, but he's not a fan. They are pretty heavy (as stone tends to be), and fly forward when tipping the glass back. Even doing so slowly does not prevent getting splashed in the face and generally it feels like the glass is going to break when they crash into the side. We have some pretty darn thick glasses, so I don't imagine that will happen, but they sit in the freezer unused since their first venture into beverages. I'll be thinking of other uses for them though!

Solid, grown up gifts for dudes
Purchased

These work pretty well when you don't want to water down your beverage. I got these as a birthday present for my fiance and he loved them!

They come in a nice drawstring bag and they're the perfect go to gift for a guy you're not sure what to buy for.

wonderful find!
Purchased

I was a little bit skeptical before I tried these, but they really do bring out all the flavor in your whiskey! They cool it down just enough to pull out all the notes that are hiding there without making it so cold it alters the flavor. In love.

Great product
Purchased

These stones are great. I like my scotch a few degrees below room temperature, but only prefer a few drops of water. Ice can handle one or the other. A larger cube for temperature, but more water. Or a smaller cube for the desired water, but not temperature. Using these solves that problem as they do a great job of just slightly cooling my drink of choice and I can add my desired amount of water. They are also a great conversation starter for those scotch purists that don't like any changes. After a little talk, I can usually get them to give the stones a try and the surprise and compliments usually follow. They clean up quite easily and after they are dry, they go right back into the freezer. If you keep any nice liquor in your bar, these should be available.

If you are a liquor lover you will love this product! The stones are great for bourbon which is what I use them in. Keeps your drink cold without watering down all the good stuff!

A very nice way to end the day with whiskey on these. No dilution or added taste whatsoever. They clean and dry quickly between uses.

Keeping it cool
Purchased

Was looking for these for years, after I had seen them at an airport shop. Easy to use, just put three in a glass and enjoy your favorite whisky (or other spirit) chilled without the water dilution. Just don't forget to rinse and dry before next use!
