MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2nd, 2009 gifts for the seriously-hard-to-buy-for, installment 1: on the rocks
It's not that we're encouraging drinking. Lordy, no, we would never do that. But, suppose you know someone who does happen to enjoy a sip of fine whiskey now and then, and suppose that person is quite particular about his/her fine whiskey not being diluted by the ice used to bring it to the perfect sipping temp. And suppose that this person is really hard to buy for (imagine that).
Ta da. The perfect gift: whiskey stones. Milled by the oldest soapstone workshop in the United States, they are the perfect way to chill your favorite single malt without diluting its perfectly balanced flavors. Just pop a few stones in your next dram, let stand for 5 minutes, and sip away. When youвЂ™re done, just rinseвЂ™em, dryвЂ™em and throw them back in the freezer for next time.
Go simple & pure with 9 stones in a muslin bag, or indulge with 6 stones and 2 hand-blown whisky tumblers, boxed and ready to make someone very, very happy.
