Where to buy Whiskey Stones?

Does anyone know where I can buy whiskey stones, the rocks you put in your whiskey to cool it without diluting it? I know the Globe had a story about some place in the north end that had them but I don't know where that was and I'd prefer some other options as well.

  1. Gosh, you could put the whiskey in the fridge ;-).

      Whiskey Stones-the Zhou Zhou pets for the drinking crowd.

        I need a gift for someone who is impossible to buy for! of course he'll also get whiskey.

        1. Gosh, I feel like I've seen these in every general gift catalogue that has arrived at my house for the past month. Google 'em, they're all over the cyberworld!

          1. Sounds like a DIY project if there ever was one.

              there is also a company making stone whisky glasses you put in the freezer. Don't remember the name though.

              It's a fad nonetheless and if you want cold undilluted booze, put it in the freezer. Whisky is always best neat or with a literal drop or two of water.

                Maybe you could just go out into your local garden supply store and pick some up for 30 cents.. or go to a local beach and get some nice polished ones for free..

            2. Weird: I just learned of the existence of these things in a catalog last night.

              My own feeling is that most whiskeys, even really rare ones, benefit from a small amount of icemelt, so I just use a cube or two.
