THE ORIGINAL STORY BEHIND THE "ON THE ROCKS" EXPRESSION
You may ask yourself, what are these granite stones for and why would you want to drink whiskey with rocks in your glass or even where does this tradition originate from? You are right to wonder!
A very unique and a quite original to say the least approach to tasting quality whiskey indeed! Back in the 20th century, scots were using cold river stones to cool down their whiskey as well as to keep it at a perfect tasting temperature. Scotland is where this tradition first originated from stories of travelers mostly. This then led to whiskey connoisseur's to follow similar practice in order to preserve aromas of the whiskey instead of using ice cubes that would otherwise dilute the whiskey with water, potentially impacting the quality of the whiskey tasting experience.
