To ease the discomfort of my latest flight, I picked up the latest issue of SkyMall and shared a few laughs with the person next to me. We saw the "whiskey stones" and laughed about it. Cold stones instead of ice cubes to keep your whiskey cool? The whole idea seemed like another Skymall novelty which you buy and never use.
After getting off the plane and into my friend's place, I glanced in her freezer. There were whiskey stones sitting inside! I was floored. Someone actually bought those? "I got them for my boyfriend. He loves them!" I wasn't sure if that statement was believable or not. Then he chimed, "I LOVE THOSE! They keep my whiskey so cold. They are the best SkyMall buy of all time."
So I decided to try them. I can't drink whiskey so I put them in a glass of wine. A major wine faux pas but I had to try it on something. And guess what? They were amazing. I need to buy my own. The beauty of them is they do not water down your beverage like ice. Your beverage stays cool on the hottest days without being diluted by messy ice cubes. Perfect for you or as a gift for a whiskey lover you know.
