Why You Should Get Yourself A Whiskey Stone

Why You Should Get Yourself A Whiskey Stone


There's something special about the whiskey's cool yet warming sensation each time you drink it. But there's one point of contention–if it's not chilled, it's not right. So you add ice. But that dilutes it, and watered-down whiskey doesn't taste the same.

Because water ruins the flavor, taste, and burn of whisky, you'll need something to enjoy a nice chilly glass of firewater without diluting it. This is where a whiskey stone comes in. These stones, which are typically made of non-porous soapstone, can be chilled to keep your drink cold without watering it down. They perfectly blend form, function, and a whiskey drinker's affinity for timelessness.

Whisky stones are affordable and make wonderful presents for ardent whisky drinkers–or they can be a simple yet effective bar tool you can add to your collection.

No More Diluted Drinks

When Andrew Hellman invented whisky stones in 2007, they were only available as carved soapstone. With time, they evolved in design and are now available in marble, granite, stainless steel, and so on.

The best whisky stones for keeping drinks ice cold are stainless steel ones. These chilling steel stones contain a gel that freezes, allowing them to remain colder for longer than the standard stones.

While it's true that different drinkers have different preferences, including some who like to add a little water to their beverage, whisky stones like the Scotch Ness Critter make it possible to quickly bring the temperature down while maintaining the pure straight-from-the-bottle taste.

So, if you like the heat, flavor, and aroma coming from the glass but want it a little colder, whisky stones are for you.

A Tiny Drinking Companion

Scotch Ness Critter Whisky Stone

According to legend, the Scotch Ness Critter lurks in the Scottish Highlands, far from civilization. Its long neck and powerful nose are drawn to only the finest aromas: toasted oak, dried fruits, or even a smidgeon of peat. You can keep it sticking around no matter how shallow or deep the glass is.

With this drinking buddy, that is cute, legendary, and helpful, too, you can add a little more joy to your drinking sessions!

Why The Scotch Ness Critter is the Best One Out There

There is more to the elusive, legendary Scotch Ness Critter–it takes your drinking experience to the next level in more ways than one:

Suctions to glass: The Scotch Ness Critter comes with a silicone suction to prevent it from sliding. While the usual cube or sphere stones can often chip or scratch your glasses, the Scotch Ness Monster stays put. Unlike the typical whiskey stones that can even chip your teeth if they somehow get past your lips, you can befriend the little monster without fearing an attack!

Food-grade stainless steel: The food-grade stainless steel and silicone it is made of ensure that you never have to worry about the flavor of your drink. You can add it to your whiskey or scotch, or even cocktails. From Negronis to Old Fashioneds, this Scotch Ness Critter will keep your favorite spirit-forward drinks cold! Plus, because stainless steel freezes faster than granite, it keeps the remaining drink much cooler for longer than any other stone.
