- The Orb – These slow-melting spheres are an excellent choice for drinks served on the rocks and cocktails served in a lowball glass.
- The Snug Cut – This rectangular ice cube fits snugly inside short tumblers, making it perfect for slimmer lowball glasses.
- The Block – This 2" cube is the perfect way to elevate old-fashioned or other drinks in a low tumbler glass.
- The Average Block – This 1.75" cube is ideal for many cocktails and glassware, helping you create a not-so-average beverage experience.
- The Baby Block – Our smallest artisan ice cube, this is the perfect choice for small sips of whiskey, scotch, and other spirits.
Our retail variety packs include a selection of our most popular cuts so that you are always ready to serve your drinks over the right ice.
Pouring Your Drink
To serve your Block Ice, don’t drop your cube into a full glass. For maximum benefit and to maintain the integrity of the cube, you’ll want to begin with a tempered cube set into a glass. Fill the glass up to the level of the Block Ice for maximum chill and minimal dilution.
If you have Block Ice that is stamped with a custom stamp for your restaurant, bar, wedding, or event, it’s important to pour your drink around the sides of the cube, not directly on top of the cube. Pouring to the side ensures your stamp remains legible to guests and customers.
