Sake + Shochu Talk

Custom-sculpted ice can make a cocktail. Not only does it look really cool to crack ice to order, but the size and consistency of the cubes or balls can really affect the flavor and temperature of a drink. A large block melts slower and will keep a drink at a consistent cool, but not too cold temperature, while ice crushed into smaller pieces quickly cools and waters down drinks. Ice matters!

The X-Long Anvil Pick by Yamachu has an extra-long prong for precise ice-sculpting. Use the heavier hammer-like end to chips away ice like a dream!
