Sometimes it is nice for a gentleman to be able to drink alone. The quiet, solitary reflection is good to have. Other times, being social and having friends and family over is the way to go. Having mismatched drinking glasses when you have company is not very gentlemanly. When you want to have people over, then you should have drink sets that allow for everyone to get something good looking and that doesn’t alienate someone with the odd glass that doesn’t fit in. Every whiskey glass set you see here comes with two matching glasses, a pair of ice tongs, and whiskey stones to help chill your drinks.
Some people might be wondering what exactly whiskey stones are. Whiskey stones are small cubes made out of various materials, usually stainless steel or soapstone. They use these non-porous materials because they will not absorb any of your drink and will not alter the flavor either. They are used to chill your whiskey without diluting it like having ice in the drink would. Simply place the stones in the freezer for at least four hours and you will have chilled whiskey without the risk of watering it down.
This is perfect for the gentlemen that want to discover new whiskeys. These drinks are artfully crafted, made with the best taste in mind when aged. Your first experience with any new drink should be to enjoy the flavor that was intended when it was distributed. Water from the ice used to chill it would dilute that flavor and you could end us passing on a whiskey that you would actually enjoy had it been chilled in another way. A gentleman will make sure that they give something the best chance to make an impression, so they can make the most informed decision as to if they like it or not. They will also do what’s possible to ensure that the drink they give their friends and family is the best form of the drink, so they can share the benefits of a great whiskey.
