All-natural Vermont soapstone whisky stones are a must-have for lovers of fine whiskies and bourbons. Milled from a very select type of soapstone located only in Vermont, these whisky stones are handcrafted in some of the oldest soapstone workshops in the USA. Scandinavians have used granite rocks for this same purpose for hundreds of years, but soapstone has superior thermal properties and being mostly composed of talc, won't scratch your glass. Whisky stones are perfect for aficionados who enjoy their beverages with a slight chill, but don't want to water down the perfect balance of flavors in their chosen spirit. Stones are nonporous, so will not impart any flavors or odors to your drink. The perfect cube shape of the stones also forms a solid surface area that allows for a better and more even chilling. To use, simply store them in your freezer and when needed let the stones stand for five minutes before dropping them into your drink. After use, hand wash stones in water and put back in freezer. Set of two 1 3/8" stones.
