1. Froz Ice Ball Maker

This food grade ice maker makes cool-looking smooth ice spheres. Since they minimize surface area relative to volume, the ice spheres melt slower than traditional ice cubes, making them a natural fit for a sipping Scotch or Bourbon on the rocks.

2. Quiseen Beverage Chilling Stones

While the name “chilling stones,” conjures up some funny mental pictures, these flavor-saving stones are no joke. They’ll keep your whiskey cool without ever watering it down.

6. Balvenie Doublewood 12-year Scotch

The Balvenie Doublewood 12-year aged Scotch is a unique luxury scotch that comes with a recommendation from none other than prolific chef Anthony Bourdain of “Parts Unknown.” Fittingly as the name implies, this scotch is aged in two different barrels, American Oak bourbon barrels and Spanish Oak Sherry Casks, giving it a rich, layered flavor befitting its trans-Atlantic dual nature.
