Win a set of Whiskey Stones from the Granite Gurus


Whiskey Stones? Yes, Whiskey Stones.


Whiskey Stones are the brainchild of Andrew Hellman, the founder of Teroforma and a great fan of single malt scotch. Whiskey Stones are made from Vermont soapstone and they take the place of ice cubes in a cold drink. Soapstone is inert and can't react with what ever drink you're chilling it with and soapstone's softer than glass so it can't scratch. More than anything though, it can chill without diluting. Brilliant.

Anyhow, the cool kids at Granite Gurus are giving away a set in a give away to take place this Sunday. Pop on over to their website and enter.

Granite Gurus is a terrific resource for no-nonsense information on natural stone and it's written by Steph Southwick, a regular commenter on this blog and a fellow geology geek.

Seriously, Steph is the only other person I've run across who takes the geology and chemistry of natural stone as seriously as I do. She's someone I can talk Schist and Sinter with and for that reason alone everyone should follow her blog.

So don't forget to head over to Granite Gurus between now and Sunday to enter to win a set of Teroforma's Whiskey Stones.

  1. Ah Paul, you're the best!
    Sometimes I try to hide my stone geekiness, so it's nice when someone appreciates it every now and then. :)

  2. I can't believe I didn't know about this and I really can't believe I wasn't already following you on Twitter. I swear, I have to have my nose rubbed in something before I notice it. I apologize for my oversight. Good Lord! You're not in my blogroll either. Let me fix that right now.

  4. You know, I had seen soapstone "ice cubes" before but I had no idea they were more than a curious novelty. I had never thought about ice diluting a stiff drink. Hey, I've just now realized that this is a great idea for a gift! :)

  8. I think they're a pretty cool idea. And you better get over there and enter the contest; there's only a day left 'til the big drawing.

  9. OK I'm sitting here drinking McAllen with my (husband's ;-)) geeky whiskey stones. They're awesome. He was justifiably suspicious of this Father's Day "gift" but he likes them too. Didn't win the drawing- just bought them from Teroforma. They have tons of other wonderful things by the way.
