If you have seen the latest liquor promotions on SHOP by Travel Recommends MY’s page, you would have realised that we are accompanying our liquors with a FREE set of reusable steel ice stones. Apart from seeking to provide the lowest prices on the market for your liquor needs, the mission to promote sustainability is also something we hold close to our hearts.
This is a special gift package edition. Steel ice cubes are small stones, which you can keep in your freezer, and put in your whisky or other drinks instead of using cubes of ice. The biggest advantage to use stainless steel ice cubes, is to have your drink not diluted by the traditional ice cubes. Our stainless steel ice cube is one of the best in the market. It contains a non-toxic gel inside each cube, which will keep the drink extra ice cold.
You usually only need to freeze these chilling stones for 1 hour, and then you can toss them into your beverage or whiskey, and enjoy the non-diluted cooling. These stainless steel whiskey stones are very durable, and easy to wash and clean.
Wondering what the fuss about using these reusable steel ice stones is all about? Here are five reasons why they are a better alternative to ice cubes:
