I actually bought these to keep my wine cool after pouring. I put two or three in the glass. They work very well. Like most stones of this nature, they don�t make room temperature beverages cold, but will cool them down. I tend to drink whiskey straight, so these rocks keep it at a perfect temperature. I don�t keep the stones in the plastic container they came in, I have them in a little bowl in the freezer to allow me to quickly grab what I need. These stones are beautifully packaged and presented and make a great gift.
I love these whiskey stones, I drink vodka and soda water, I don't like my drink getting watered down and flat. These allow me to enjoy my cocktail leisurely rather than worry about beating it going flat or becoming water. I guess because I live in Hawaii and it's warm all the time ice melts faster. These also keep my cocktails colder when I sit in the hot tub. This one is great because the seller includes tongs and coasters.
Beautifully packaged, and would make a great gift - in fact the packaging lends itself to them being an easy gift. Down to the facts of the matter - the cubes are easy to use and to wash, they are made stainless steel but nonetheless, I do clean them and dry them after use to keep them looking their best. Be aware that steel has a much lower "cooling power" than ice, so use 4 to a glass for best results.
Packaging was very high end in appearance. After cleaning, placed them in freezer overnight. Came home, put 4 in a rocks glass with an ounce or two of Johnnie Walker Black Label, and they worked great. Finished glass in about 30 minutes, left them sitting in glass on counter for another 25-30 minutes and they were still ice cold when I grabbed to rinse and put away. Excellent buy!
My boyfriend really liked these. I dont recommend letting them sit on the side of the door in the freezer bc if it falls the container will break. But it's a really awesome gift
