Okay, this isn’t bacon news, but it does tie in to my “Bacon Infused Whiskey” project.Â Plus, I like drinkin’!
These are Whiskey Stones.Â I was introduced to them through an email I got today from Delight.com.Â I bought some holiday gifts there last year and find they have some interesting items every now and then.
Here is their description of the product:
How do you chill your favorite spirits just a touch without diluting their perfectly balanced flavors? Whisky Stones are made in Vermont from natural soapstone, by the craftsmen of the oldest soapstone workshop in the United States. The stones are nonporous, and will impart neither flavor nor odor. More gentle than ice, Whisky Stones can be used to cool down your favorite spirits just enough to take the edge off without â€œclosing downâ€ the flavors. Store in the freezer for at least 4 hours before use. Add 3 stones to a glass. Pour until liquid has reached the height of 1 stone (about 2 fl oz). Let stand for 5 minutes. Enjoy. Rinse and air dry following every use, storing in the freezer for next time. Set of 9 stones packaged in a gift box; reusable storage bag included.
Color me intrigued.Â I too am bothered by the watering down of my drinks, yet I do likeÂ my bourbonÂ cool.Â With theÂ subtle flavor that I imagine my infusion will add to the whiskey, ice could quickly kill it.Â Â
So let us see how the infusion works…I just might be back to pick these up.
