Try it Thursday – Whisky/ey on the rocks (and no I don’t mean ice)

It’s Try it Thursday Folks! Woot woot! I was chatting with my hubby last night and he said, “Why not tell the world about whisky stones”? And what a great idea it was! Before I continue on, if you are as confused  as I was about the multiple spellings for what I thought was the same thing, you can learn a bit more about  Whiskey vs. Whisky: What’s the Difference on theKitchn.

If you are a whisky/ey drinker, you should definitely check these out, it doesn’t change the flavor, it just chills it to perfection! You add 3 or 4 stones to a glass and pour a small amount over the stones and let sit for five minutes and voila, perfect temp for drinking. My husband has the Teroforma Whisky Stones which is a really nice gift idea for your whisky enthusiasts. These are made in Vermont and comes from the oldest soapstone workshop in the US.

For my husbands 40th Birthday party, I decided the coolest gift bag idea was to give our guests some of Brandon’s favorite whisky and his new found love of whisky stones. Guests were treated to 4 rocks in muslin bags and I heard rave reviews about their experiences.

However, when I was planning to give out these as gifts to our guests, I couldn’t really swing the Teroforma package option for each person, so I bought in bulk on Amazon sold by DBRoth. I also purchased my own muslin spice bags and it was so much more affordable for a group of 30 guests.

Well that about does it for this Try it Thursday! I know that not everyone is a huge whisky/ey fan, myself included, but I have SO many friends and family that are. This is such a nice addition to your bar collection. Enjoy!
