Libations On The Rock Whiskey Glass and Ice Ball


Pick up this gift pack up from BYOB on Queen West for the whiskey aficionado in your life, and perhaps peruse the hundreds of other gorgeous pieces of glassware that they have available. This glass is molded to allow the ice ball to roll around, and chill your drink with a simple wrist movement. The set comes with a silicone mould for your ice ball. The idea for these larger balls of ice is that they melt slower, and keep your whiskey cold and undiluted longer.
