Gift Idea for the Whiskey Connoisseur in Your Life: Choice of Connoisseurs Whiskey Stones

 
Disclosures: I received a complimentary set of whiskey stones from Choice of Connoisseurs for review purposes.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience using the product.

My husband loves whiskey.  In fact, he fancies himself a connoisseur of whiskeys and bourbons.  We had heard about whiskey stones and reusable ice cubes for chilling your drink on the rocks without it getting watered down, but hadn't tried it until recently.  Not wanting our entertaining game to be lacking, we were glad to have a chance to review Choice of Connoisseurs Whiskey Stones just in time for holiday parties.  After giving them a try, I can say that not only are these an essential for your home bar, but they are also a great holiday or host gift idea for the connoisseur in your life!


Choice of Connoisseurs Whiskey Stones are granite whiskey stones that are stored in the freezer (like reusable ice cubes) until ready for use.  Since they are not ice, they don't melt or water your beverage down.  They are non-porous and won't change the flavor of your beverage, which I wondered about when I first heard of them.  Another artisanal feature of the stones are the rounded edges, which protect your glassware from scratches.  At a price of around $20 for a set of 12, these are a great, inexpensive stocking stuffer or host/hostess gift.  Or why not kick the gift up a notch by giving them with a bottle of Maker's Mark?

 
The set of 12 is a great quantity for entertaining.  The set also includes tongs and a velvet storage bag.  After an initial freezing time of 4-5 hours, you can use however many you want of them at a time, whenever you'd like.  Then they are easy to clean and reuse by keeping them stored in their velvet bag in the freezer.

 
 
One thing to note: these do not make your beverage ice cold (which can add to a reduction in flavor).  Instead they lower the temperature in the old Scandinavian tradition of chilling a beverage with frozen pebbles.
