The Irish Whiskey Stone Company is based in Kinvara, Co., Galway and is a one-woman operation run by Maeve Kelly, a Dubliner who settled in the West of Ireland over 25 years ago. Maeve came across the idea while travelling around the world with her daughter and thought it was brilliant! She set up the Irish Whiskey Stone Company in late 2019 when she returned.

Whiskey stones are cubes of  marble that you put in the freezer and then use instead of ice. The main benefit of using whiskey stones is that they will not increase the dilution of your drink as they do not melt, preserving the original flavour notes, which makes them particularly popular with whiskey drinkers.

Designs include boxes engraved with old-style Irish Road Signs, Gin Stone boxes and the bestseller, Father Jack's Whiskey Stones, engraved with his favourite expressions. The lids can be personalised to make your gift extra special and there is a lovely selection of whiskey gift sets that can include whiskey, gin, chocolates and garnishes.
