Product: Tumbled Whiskey Stones– 4-piece city set and 2-piece MIT set
Team Name: Tumbled
Description: Made from locally-sourced soapstone, the Tumbled collection of hand-crafted whiskey stones can be cooled in any freezer and placed in a drink to keep it at the perfect temperature to bring out the rich flavor of your spirits without altering taste. Enjoy your drink truly on the rocks, with the control to dilute it perfectly to your taste – and not just with whiskey, but any of your favorite low-volume drinks. The two beautiful options are sold as a 2-piece MIT-themed stone set and a puzzle-like map of the Charles River area of Boston and Cambridge, both with wooden bases for displaying your stones on your counter, desk, or bar when not in use, and for transferring the stones to the freezer. They’re great for enjoying with loved ones, sharing a moment with guests, or gifting to that hard-to-by-for friend. Whether it’s MIT or Beantown, let the place you love bring you together with a friend or two or three.
