If you drink whisky, you slowly turn into a obsessive compulsive. You want to enjoy every last drop, but you find that stones are a bit off-putting and that ice cubes… well, they melt. This is why, sadly, “artisan ice” has become a thing in recent years. But, that said, a little creativity never hurt when engineering a whisky solution, and the Whisky Wedge is precisely the frozen polygon you need.
It’s actually pretty clever. As you might have guessed, the Whisky Wedge is a wedge-shaped block of ice that fills half a custom tumbler at an angle; the whisky goes in the other half. Yes, it’s still frozen water, but it’s frozen water that melts much more slowly than your regular cube. Or sphere. Or, well, any of a number of Platonic solids and geographical shapes.
The reason is in how the wedge and glass work together. The Whisky Wedge only exposes the needed amount of surface area, so that there’s limited opportunity for its molecules to speed up and invade your whiskey. Over time, of course, it will melt; they haven’t invented magic yet. But it will melt slowly enough that a pleasant drink will remain flavorful and delightful.
Whisky is meant to be savored, of course, and it tastes best with a nice chill. So if you want to really enjoy the good stuff, the Whisky Wedge is a good way to make it happen. Besides, at $30, it’s a lot more reasonable than a lot of other bar tools; you’d think these people don’t realize you want to spend your money on whisky.
