A Cool Summer Dram - The Whiskey Wedge
Now long gone are the days that if you wanted a cooled glass of whiskey you would chuck in a few cubes.
Whiskey Wedge is a fairly new addition to the scene (in the UK at least) and having had cubes, spheres and rocks to cool our whiskeys, we are now unlocking the power of the pyramid.
The Whiskey Wedge comes as a whole package with a sleek freezable glass and accompanying silicone mould that has an easy access for pouring in your water to create a perfectly moulded ice triangle that is stuck to the side of the glass.
As a result of this new design, not only is the process really easy with no fiddling with multi-part moulds, but also very effective in that due to the shape there is a reduced surface area and as such there is less ice melting and diluting the precious whiskey.
I was lucky enough to be sent one to trial and I have to say that this works really well and also looks pretty cool at the same time. It does what it says it will and I am certain that I will be using this more and more as the summer wears on.
What's great about it is that it can also be used for other spirits too and as such the gins will be getting a good outing in this as well.
So with summer ramping up and Father's Day this weekend this makes a great option for those that don't want to stoop to the lukewarm cans of amber nectar at the barbecue and enjoy a lovely refreshing glass of the good stuff.
Whiskey Wedge is available at Firebox for £19.99.
