For those who enjoy chilling their whisky on the rocks, but are frustrated by dilution caused by regular ice cubes, the Macallan Ice Ball Maker might be your solution. This ice ball maker is made to accommodate whisky drinkers in that the ice balls perfectly fit rock glasses and melt much slower than traditional ice cube blocks.

This ice ball maker simply transforms large chunks of ice into large ice balls 65 MM in diameter. These balls of ice melt much slower because they are of smaller surface area than regular ice cubes. For example, most persons may use three or four regular sized cubes per drink, which in total make up a larger surface area than one spherical ball of ice. The melting and dilution is in direct consequence of the larger surface area.

This Macallan Ice Ball Maker would make a perfect gift for whisky drinkers. The maker accommodates up to four ice molds and is priced at $1,100.
