Whiskoff Whiskey Glasses Set

Whiskey Stones Amazon


If pops is a whiskey drinker, you know that no one just drinks whiskey. There’s a whole experience to it: aside from the spirit itself, the atmosphere has to be right, the glass has to feel right, and it needs to be just cool enough. This set appealed to us for those reasons: heavy-bottomed glasses give some heft, and the included stones, unlike ice cubes, keep it chill without having to worry about diluting it as they melt.

More reasons to buy:

  • Comes with two glasses, two slate coasters, eight polished granite cooling stones, and tongs
