While some might frown at the idea of adding ice to whiskey, many do prefer the warm malt to be slightly chilled. With Tovolo’s large ice spheres, you can keep your drink cool without compromising or diluting the pure taste of the spirit. The bulky balls of ice are rock solid and take quite some time to melt, which is great if you want to keep your drink cool without having a watered-down glass of fine whiskey. The Tovolo mould is easy to use and is made from strong and durable plastic to ensure that it offers more than a lifetime’s use. Thanks to these features, it makes a perfect Christmas gift. What we also love about these spherical ice pieces is that they don’t only keep a drink cooler for longer, but they look super dignified and decorative in a glass too!
