How Your Whiskey Stones Get Made

I actually found this kind of fascinating and soothing. You may be less interested, but that's not really my problem, is it? I am getting a little tired of you and your constant need for entertainment. If you can't sit back and enjoy a simple video about whiskey stones then maybe you should take a good, hard look at yourself in the mirror and figure out what your real issues are. God you make me sick sometimes. [Via]

I woke up today not knowing what a whiskey stone was, and now I'm forced to wonder how I ever lived without them.

@boyofdestiny Me too, although I actually don't mind a little molten ice in my whiskey. Although I pretty much turn my nose up at 80 proof whiskey because of the watering down factor – these might be the solution to that.

How did I not know these things existed? Beautiful video.

@riggssm Twinsies!

riggssm (#760)

@boyofdestiny !! Ha.

(Sorry I missed the party the other night … how was it?!)

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

@riggssm Sparsely attended, but still fun. We'll see you next year!

Now I feel obligated to get up, pull my whiskey stones out of the freezer, and pour myself some luncheon. And yet that would just cater to common myths about the freelance lifestyle. Plus, really, this bathrobe already has too many whiskey and burrito stains on it.

Whiskey stones. Yes!

The lack of dustmasks in that video makes my throat hurt.

I'll admit, as well, that everyone in that video looks like someone I grew up around. They all had barns full of machinery, too.

@Gef the Talking Mongoose Lack of dustmasks was my first thought (after having a moment about how appealing the place and materials are). I think, though, that normal dust masks don't do much for dudes with that much facial hair.

@Honest Engine Yeah, breathing fine talc dust has got to be doubleplusungood for the lungs.

I think I love this man.

I find whiskey stones to be overrated. An overly large single piece of ice still works better. Round is more effective but I will admit to preferring the square.

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

@NinetyNine The solution is to drink shitty enough whiskey that ice-melt is a feature, not a bug.

metoometoo (#230)

@NinetyNine I have given whiskey stones to a few different whiskey-lovers in my life, and they were intrigued at first but soon switched back to ice, I think because they decided the whiskey stones were imparting a flavor they didn't like?

@NinetyNine Perfect stocking stuffers. The molds, not the actual ice balls.

The solution is to drink it neat, you ponce.

This production is strikingly well done, and now I want whiskey stones. Touche.

Whiskey stones sound too much like a painful kidney condition and I want nothing to do with them.

Damn, The Man has convinced rich people to buy rocks.

SeanP (#4,058)

@Ham_Snadwich I also had that thought – 29.95 is quite a lot to spend on some chunks of talc.
