You may be thinking - "whiskey... rocks?"
Absolutely! Did you know the term "On the rocks" comes from a time when ice wasn't readily available and so bar keeps would keep a small chest under the counter, partially underground. The boxes would have stones in them that would get chilled by being stored there. When you ordered a cool drink, they would place the rocks in a glass and pour the liquor over them!
Hence the term - "Whiskey on the rocks" !
Nowadays we recognize this as not only a timeless and elegant way to enjoy your favorite drink - but we prize them for chilling our prized (and expensive) favorites without diluting them like ice cubes do!
Grab a set of stone coasters and pair them up for the perfect gift!
Aged 400 million years.

A note from the artisan about how to HEAT whiskey/whisky stones.
A) submerge in boiling water from a kettle, let sit.
B) I have microwaved them, IN WATER to no bad effect.
C) Use a kettle and boiling water, tongs to remove.
In essence; Submerge and heat.
Please remember stones are meant to have liquor poured OVER them. Used either hot or cold. Not to be dropped into liquor after the pour.
You should pour only a finger or two of cognac or whatever your choice is over the rocks. Just enough to cover them.
Please take care when heating and using the stones. Hot things are hot.
Please also keep in mind that the same rules of hot liquids apply, If you add hot stones to a chilled, thin glass - it will likely shatter the glass.
Traditional soapstone rocks will crack after multiple heating and freezing cycles. Ours will not.
