Much like the Old Fashioned, the Manhattan is one of the oldest and (and in our opinion, one of the finest) cocktails. The Manhattan is the first cocktail documented to use vermouth as a modifier. And just like the Old Fashioned, there are many variations of the Manhattan, but we’re partial to this variant – with an ice ball of course.
Some of our most favorite cocktails are the ones that your grandfather, or even your grandfather's grandfather may have enjoyed. The Jockey Club No. 2 is a revival of the original, from the 1930s (so we'll call this one "old school" since your grandfather or perhaps great grandfather may have enjoyed it).
It's that time of year again. The time when we eat too much turkey and enjoy holiday spirits (by the glassful)...and we stay up late, hoping to find a few goodies we can use as gifts (sometimes even gifts for ourselves).
We decided, what the heck, we'll get in on some of that. Here are some things to help kick off your holiday gift searching.
Give dad a little extra something to smile about. While supplies last, we will be giving away a set of our Hand-blown, Double-wall Whiskey Glasses to everyone who buys one of our Ice Ball Maker Sets. That's right, free!

Fresh off the heels of the 3rd Annual Dallas Whiskey and Fine Spirits Fest and all we can say is "Wow, what a night!" We saw some of the big players in the whiskey, scotch whisky and fine spirits business and a lot of smaller boutique makers, it was great rubbing elbows with all of them.
Keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming Black Friday Deal. While supplies last, we will be giving away a set (of 4) of our Hand-blown, Double-wall Whiskey Glasses to everyone who buys one of our Ice Ball Maker Sets. That's right, free!
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Brookstone to supply our famous Spherical Ice Ball Maker. Teaming up with the leader in gadgets and gifts marks a new milestone for The Whiskey Ice Co. Our specialized products and unrivaled warranty make for a perfect pairing with the king of executive gifts and personal gadgets.
We hear it all the time. Folks just don't understand the difference between a genuine Ice Ball Maker from The Whiskey Ice Co. and those ice ball molds that are available in stores. Well, we thought we would do a little experiment to show the difference.
We at The Whiskey Ice Co.® are committed to designing and manufacturing in the USA. We are also committed to the environment, which is why we source scrap aluminum from the USA, also known as "Upcycling", to use in manufacturing. Checkout this great article onIntercongreen.com about Upcycling vs. Recycling. Our other manufactured products use recycled metals whenever possible, including a minimum of 60% recycled stainless steel, and we use scrap copper for copper-plated products.
Besides upcycling and using recycled metals, we also use post-consumer recycled packaging materials in all of our shipping and printing. All of this and we still offer the best price for a complete ice ball maker set in the world, while still offering our unmatched limited, lifetime warranty.
Why do we care so much about where the aluminum comes from?
Because every year, aluminum scrap is discarded and ends up in our landfills to stay there for a lifetime. By re-purposing aluminum scrap (a.k.a. Upcycling), we are removing waste aluminum piece by piece and converting it into something new and useable, and you can feel good about your Spherical Ice Ball Maker knowing that you too are doing your part to help the world be a little greener.
