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.
