Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Can I use Whiskey Stones with other liquors/spirits?
Answer: Absolutely! Whiskey Stones are so-named because they were originally designed by a man who loved his single malt whiskey. However, any liquor that you wish to chill without watering it down can benefit from Whiskey Stones.
Question: Will they work with wine?
Answer: They will. However, we would recommend Wine Pearls if you're only looking to chill wine.
Question: Is it safe to put Whiskey Stones into a liquid that I'm going to drink?
Answer: We suppose it's as safe as plying yourself with 80% grain alcohol. We kid, we kid! Yes, Whiskey Stones are safe to put into your drink. In fact, the FDA has classified them as such. We wouldn't sell them if they weren't safe!
Question: Are the Whiskey Stones naturally cold? How do they actually cool the drink?
Answer: Soapstone (the material that comprises the Whiskey Stones) must be chilled before going into your drink. Simply keep your Whiskey Stones in your freezer and you'll always have a few handy. You only need three Whiskey Stones per glass. Talc, the primary ingredient in soapstone, is especially effective at retaining its temperature for long periods of time.
Question: Why shouldn't I just use ice?
Answer: Someone wasn't paying attention in class! Whiskey Stones don't melt (so they don't water down your drink), they hold a chill for much longer, and they're completely odorless and tasteless.
