The Alpine whiskey glass is cradled in a sculpted piece of soapstone.
Here’s a new way to cool that shot of single malt, añejo tequila or sipping rum. Simon Pearce’s handblown whiskey glass now has a soapstone base, made in Finland, to chill it. Put the base in the freezer for a few hours, and it will be ready to cradle the glass.
Alpine whiskey glass with soapstone base, $75; set of four on soapstone base, $265, simonpearce.com.
