Super Cubes: Say Goodbye to Melty Ice with Reusable Ice Cubes

You wouldn’t know but there was a time when ice was considered a great luxury. In Japan, it was a gift offered to emperors; during the reign of Charles II, iced drinks were the preserve of an elite who had it brought down from the Alps by donkey. These days people don’t give it a second thought – throwing a couple of ice cubes into their favourite vodka mixer and consider it job done.

There’s no denying that melted ice compromise the taste of a perfectly stirred cocktail. Yet, as any bartender will tell you, the quality of your ice can have a dramatic impact on your drink. Made from stone, stainless steel and sometimes plastic – reusable ice cubes could be the answer to keeping our cocktails looking and tasting fresher and crisper for longer.
