The Whisky Wedge

for whisky or cocktails

By In Cocktails
Designed for whisky, as the name suggests, I think the Corkcicle Whisky Wedge is also ideal for cocktails. OK so you are limited to the tumbler shaped glass but what the heck. That perfect triangle of ice makes for a true talking point in addition to keeping whatever drink is poured onto it chilled but not diluted.

Now you might dismiss this is a cheap gimmick, like those wine glasses that hold a whole bottle, but it is a substantial, weighty piece of kit. The glass is heavy and suitably chunky while the silicone cover that fits ontop (in which the water is poured prior to freezing) is equally substantial and built to last.

I’ve used the glass on a couple of cocktail shots for the Cocktail.Collection on Instagram and repeated them below with a third addition.

Time to drink with something new, The Root7 Whiskey Wedge ensures perfect drinks every time. Simply, insert the silicone slope into the classic glass, add little water and freeze for a couple of hours. Once frozen you’ll be left with a slanted piece of ice that looks classic, pour over your spirit or drink of choice and you’ll be ready to unwind.

As the ice has a smaller surface of ice than ice cubes it means it won’t melt as fast, leaving your drinks flavour undiluted and full of character.

The Corkcicle Whisky Wedge is £14.99 from Root 7.
