Those stones are also really fast to chill. It will takes you only 45 minutes in the freezer to get them at the right temperature (whereas for soap stones, it takes several hours). Second, they won't water down your whisky. They will also not affect the flavour of your brown spirits because their porosity is the lowest you can found on any stones (in between 0.2 to 1% of porosity). & Last thing, they are pretty hard stones which means they won't leave residues of stones in your whisky.
These 5 elements make them the perfect material for this particular product.
They all offer the same result. Choose to the stone you prefer and that's it! Considering that our mission is to promote geological heritage, we choose many stone to make sure people understood our mission but also allows them to really discover our geological heritage.
First Knowing that white wine is used at a temperature ranging from 4 to 8 ° C, our stones do not meet this need.
Regardind red wines, although some red wines like Bordeaux or Burgundies are drunk between 15 and 18 ° C, it is not customary to add cooling stones to your glass.
Finally, don't forget that your wine glasses are fragile. The contact between our rocks and the walls of wine glasses (often fine) do not mix well.
Thanks to our geological knowledge and in product design, we decided to introduce you to three types of stones that are little known to the general public.
To give you an overview of the quantity of rock available versus what we extract, here is a calculation:
13,000,000,000,000 (cm3) / 94.8 (cm3) = 137 130 801 687 set of 6 available with only 1 m of rock thickness *
To make it simple, we could create 137 billion rock kits with 6 cubes * per kit! * Based on information from CIGEUM.
If you want to, don't worry. At this time, be sure to take it out from time to time to allow it to air out. Remember, after all, this is a natural material that needs to breathe!
* Engineered wood is wood that is dried, planed (level and look) and glued. Hyper resistant and stable, we are far from the reconstituted wooden board.
We advise you not to always leave them in the freezer in order to ventilate them.
As for the case, just coat it with odorless mineral oil for wood.
In short, maintenance is very simple!
Respecting nature and producing responsibly, we mainly use wood scraps from factories producing wooden planks.
