When I came across the Whisky Stones (Whiskey Stones) they won my heart!
I quote “Put a chill in your whisky without diluting the dram of your dreams” Beautifully said, especially since I had been a Drambuie drinker in the past there was an immediate appreciation for this fine milled stones that have made there way in to many a dram!
We recently attended and sponsored the Hopscotch 2011 Event where the Whisky Stones were featured and the Whisky Lovers were celebrated.

And here is the history….
Co-founder Andrew Hellman (Connecticut) Andrew took inspiration from a bag of loose stones found in his Swedish grandfather’s liquor cabinet to come up with an American interpretation of a centuries-old Scandinavian tradition.
Vermont Soapstone (Vermont) Over 150 years ago, local Vermonters began mining and milling soapstone found in their fields for a variety of purposes. As America’s oldest soapstone workshop, many of their original techniques are still in use today.
