Popular method of chilling whiskey with the help of ice makes a drink to lose its taste properties because of the excessive dilution of water, which appears in result of inevitable ice thawing.
Soapstone (also known as steatite or soaprock) neither thaws out nor dissolves , preserving the primeval nature and original taste properties of your whiskey.
Ice chills whiskey too much (up to 10⁰C instead of normal 18-20 ⁰C). Such a low temperature makes the natural oil contained in the beverage to thicken and does not enable you to take pleasure in a bouquet of its scents . Conclusion: ice closes the original taste of whiskey.
Soapstone chills the whiskey up to the temperature optimal – 18-20 ⁰C. Thanks to the soft cooling, all sides of a rich taste and aroma can be opened out as much as possible.
Unfortunately, ice chills the whiskey for 10 minutes only. After that, the beverage becomes warm again.
Soapstone can keep beverages warm or cold for a long time. Before using it, put the stones in the freezer compartment for 2 hours. Then, add 2-3 stones to whiskey and enjoy your beverage for 20-25 minutes.
Ice stones made of unsound water can be injurious to your health.
