Doubled Walled Rocks Glasses For Keeping Your Booze Cool

November 16, 2018

These are the Double-Wall Insulated Rocks Glasses manufactured by Sun's Tea and available on Amazon. A set of two 9-ounce borosilicate rocks glasses will set you back $17, and keep your drinks cooler longer, without obstructing the view of your drink. Me? I don't really care what my drink looks like, because I know that, just like with people, it's what's on the inside that counts. In this case *shaking plastic cup* half a can of grape soda then vodka to the top.

Thanks to Josh J, who agrees there's nothing wrong with double fisting sippy cups.

    That sounds painful. https://media.giphy.com/med...

    At 17$ per glass, even the photographer had to digitally add that second cup in.

  • sizzlepants

    It clearly says 'a set of two' for $17.

    I would definitely consider getting a pair if it wasn't on Amazon and Canada Post wasn't on strike.

    Where can i get ice cubes like those?

  • GeneralDisorder

    You have to hire a small child to run your ice crusher and then hand polish each piece. The orphan also must shake the ice maker at regular intervals.

  • James Mcelroy

    i have a couple of small children around, but i'm not hiring them, they work for free.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Well then they're not hired orphans. You can't get quite the same sadness from your own little bastards.

    Norlan has had a double walled glencairn for a long time, and just released a rocks glass as well. However, those are $50 each, so this is a decent price. Any other regulars here who drink whiskey? Let's nerd out a bit.

  • Kaizer Chief

    Whisky/ey with ice... what kind of animal are you?

  • Ollie Williams

    I didn't say I drink whiskey with ice. I take mine neat, always.

  • Kaizer Chief

    That is true... why do you need an insulated glass then (besides the novelty).

  • Ollie Williams

    I don’t. I also didn’t say I own either these or the Norlan glasses, just that they exist.

  • Kaizer Chief

    Also, what’s your favourite bourbon (under $200)?

  • Ollie Williams

    Readily available bottles, or also include limited releases?

  • Kaizer Chief

    I’m not in the US, so readily available would be better.

  • Ollie Williams

    Being overseas is, as you know, going to even further limit your options. I'd go with either Four Roses Single Barrel, or Wild Turkey Russell's Reserve Single Barrel. If you can find a cask strength store pick of Four Roses of any of their 10 recipes, even better, but I would imagine distribution overseas is not great.

  • Kaizer Chief

    Local specialist liquor shop has Four Roses single barrel (surprisingly affordable!), and a few bottlings labelled “small batch” which are a bit out of my price range $3–400). Also Russell’s Reserve Rye, which looks interesting. Thanks for the recommendations!

  • Ollie Williams

    Four Roses small batch for $300-400 must be a limited release bottle. The latest is their 130th anniversary bottle, which is very good.

    I was actually recommending the Russell's single barrel bourbon, not the rye. I have a bottle of the single barrel rye as well, which is great, but you may want to try it at a bar if you can find it first before you take that plunge. The rye is quite herbal, and it seems to be very much a love or hate towards the rye. The Russell's single barrel bourbon is crazy good though.

  • Kaizer Chief

    That is also true... guess I’ll just go cry in the corner ;(

  • James Mcelroy

    I dunno if it counts, i mostly only drink bourbon. Sweet, sweet bourbon. But not always straight from the bottle.
