What is Ceramic Ice?
They are ceramic whiskey stones that keep cold or hot your favorite drinks
How do you use the whiskey stones?
To chill your beverage, keep the ceramic whiskey stones in the freezer about four hours, and then place them inside your glass. The cold temperature of the ceramic whiskey stones will maintain the ideal temperature of your drink, without changing its flavor or consistency.
On the other hand, if you would like to keep your beverage hot (coffee, tea, etc.), you just need to microwave the ceramic piece a few minutes and then put it in your drink…it’s that easy!
You can reuse them again and again.
Unlike other whiskey stones products, Ceramic Ice offers beautiful handcrafted ceramic whiskey stones that enhance your drink with a unique touch, which can be further personalized with your name.

Are they safe?
These ceramic whiskey stones are made out of clay, especially created to be used with china and glassware.
The Ceramic Ice whiskey stones are entirely safe to use, from the materials used to manufacture them, to the cleaning and freezing process.
The glazes used on the ceramic whiskey stones are lead-free, and non-toxic. They are as safe as a common household china plate or ceramic mug. They can be hand-washed or put in the dishwasher.
How are they made?
The making varies depending of the shape and final design, including size, shape, color and carving.
All the products are hand made, one by one, from the first step -kneading the clay-, to the design with glazes. Once the desired shape has been obtained, the clay is set to dry before firing in the kiln at 2,900°F.
After the firing, the second glaze is applied decorating the ceramic whiskey stones freehand, which will give each ceramic piece its own uniqueness.
The whiskey stones are finally fired in the kiln at an even higher temperature than before. Some of the pieces will be fired up to three times, depending on the design.
