Unique Father’s Day Gift
Father’s Day is just 4 days away. Have you purchased a gift for your Dad yet?
There are so many unique food gifts that you can give your dad this year from BBQ to beverages. But, when I saw these “Whisky Stones” at the store the other day I thought they would be the perfect Father’s Day gift for the dad that loves Whisky, Bourbon, Scotch or any other fine Whisky.
Talk about “on the rocks”! For those who want to chill their whisky, but not dilute it, whisky stones are the elegant answer. As the blurb reads: These 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. (Of course you could try to freeze them in ice cube trays like the “Cool Beans” way but because of the alcohol content they won’t get to a hard freeze.)
These stones are nonporous, so they 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 includes nine stones and a muslin storage bag.
Just think of how grateful your dad will be now that his whisky won’t be getting watered down anymore. Of course this is just one of the millions of fun and unique gifts you can get for dad this year.

Talk about Scotch on the Rocks! You might need to purchase more than one bag since all those drinking with dad may want some rocks in their whisky too!
