Now,  At Classic Hostess The Ice Age has passed! Luckily, a few great soapstone workers in Perkinsville, Vermont have created Whiskey Stones. These little ice-imitators are specially designed to put a slight chill in your Whiskey.

How Does It Work? Soapstone Ice Rocks will chill your liquor without diluting it. Because soapstone retains its temperature longer than ice, Whiskey Ice Rocks provide for a more sustained chill. Put them into the freezer and take them out in time for the party! Ice rocks hold their temperature out of the freezer for 1 hour or more.

Worried About Whiskey Stones Ruining Your Barware? Soapstone Ice Rocks have been sent through a tumbling process to wear down the edges, meaning they won’t scratch your glass.

Whiskey Rocks – Will Not Drip us Dry Stop wasting water. Those Stones never wear out or lose their ability to chill your drinks. Once you’re done, rinse, dry and do it all over again.

Savor Your Spirits Taste Whiskey Soapstone Rocks Soapstone is non-porous, odorless and tasteless. Soapstone will not react to household cleaners. Chill and enjoy a perfectly balanced spirit.

Plentiful Uses Because of the Whiskey Rocks Ability to maintain temperature, Soapstone can also help keep liquids warm. It is recommended to microwave the rocks, pop them in coffee to keep it warm for an hour.
