Want to keep your Coffee or Cocoa hot or Brandy at a comfortable room temperature, Bev Dice can solve that problem also.

I am stoked to bring such a quality and creative product to the Kickstarter community. Bev Dice are unique Soapstone Cubes that have been measured, cut to size, tumbled to remove any rigid corners and edges and each side individually drilled pressed by hand to create the "pips" that transform the cubes into Beverage Chilling/ Fun Board Game Playing Dice.(These are not precision dice, simply made for use in beverages and for board game entertainment).

I personally own several sets of Whiskey Stones which measure typically 3/4" in size. But with smaller size stones you have to add more to your drink to achieve that ideal drinking temperature whether it be chilling your Whiskey or Vodka, or keeping your Coffee or Cocoa nice and hot!

But let's not be mistaken the 3/4" Bev Dice also make for fun rolling dice to play those amazing board games with. So I'm going to also offer them as a reward level for those that may want smaller dice. No matter what size Bev Dice you choose you will be receiving a 100% Soapstone product. Share them as a gift, use them in your tasty spirits, lemonade,  Ice Tea or play with your favorite board games.

I love to cook and prepare delicious foods and drinks for large crowds of family and friends. I started using Soapstone products a few years back, first purchasing two Soapstone food trays to prep and serve foods. Through my research I have learned all about the physical properties of Soapstone and the right size cubes to achieve the ideal temperature for chilling or keeping hot/warm small to larger size volumes of liquid. 

I am passionate about food, art, and board games :) and thought it would be a great idea to take two things and merge them together. So I decided to take Soapstone and make it look like dice. Bringing you my idea and creation called Bev Dice.**(These are by no means precision/balanced gaming dice). But they do Rock, and look awesome. Great for simply having fun with when entertaining friends and enjoying good drinks while playing your favorite board games. Just place one or two in your drink and use two to roll!

Bev Dice and Spirits
Bev Dice and Spirits

Never use ice in your drinks again!

Adding ice to High Quality Spirits is an over kill and will absolutely dilute and destroy the taste and smell of your drink. Bev Dice will not melt like regular ice and water down your tasty Spirits. In almost all cases adding ice will cool your drink below 45 degrees fahrenheit which will eliminate important flavor notes. Keep your High Quality Spirits right where it needs to be, a slight chill with a whole lot of taste.

You asked what is Soapstone?

Soapstone is a soft metamorphic rock that is primarily made up of talc and various amounts of minerals such as micas, amphiboles, chlorite, pyroxenes and carbonates. It has been quarried from the earth for thousands of years and can be found in several countries(Brazil, Finland, India and United States just to name a few). This stone was and still is today used to make cooking pots, bowls, and food trays.

Why should I use Bev Dice?

Bev Dice are made from 100% natural Soapstone. Soapstone is very dense which gives the stone it's thermal mass. Thermal mass allows an object to absorb heat. Bev Dice if placed in Coffee or Hot Cocoa will absorb the heat from the drink, bringing your delicious cup of java or cocoa to a desired drinking temperature and then slowly releases the heat over time back into your drink. This in turn keeps your Coffee hot for a longer period of time. Or simply keep that tasteful Brandy at room temperature with Bev Dice. Soapstone is soft so it will not scratch your glassware or board games.

No need to worry about your Bev Dice taking on the the taste or smell of any drink, freezer or microwave you place them into. Because they are made from 100% Soapstone this makes them non-absorbent, odorless, inert, non-porous, resistant to acids and alkalis heat resistant all at the same time. Re-use them as many times as you like. 

And did I forget to mention Soapstone is recognized by the FDA to be safe to use on contact with food. What more could you ask for!

What size do the Bev Dice come in?

You will have the option to choose from either 3/4", 7/8" or 1" Bev Dice cubes. If you like smaller dice go with the smaller Bev Dice or if you prefer larger dice the 7/8" or 1" are a great choice. Either way the Bev Dice are great to add to your collection, use as beverage cubes and entertain friends

How should I use my Bev Dice?

Bev Dice are really simple to use, just pop your 7/8" or 1" dice in to the freezer for 2 hours for fast use or you can also freeze them overnight. Remove them from the freezer and place two 7/8" dice or one 1" dice in your 2-3 ounces of Whiskey, Gin, Vodka or glass of wine. This will cool your drink down from room temp. to the mid fifty degree range.

For larger size drinks like Beer Glasses it's recommended to place one 1" dice into the glass and for Beer Mugs place two 1" dice into the mug.

Coffee and Cocoa lovers don't worry have you covered also. Just place two 7/8" or one 1" dice that have set out at room temperature into your coffee or cocoa. If you really want to keep your coffee or cocoa hot place your dice into the microwave for 30-60 seconds.**Warning- Make sure to use a cooking mitt when removing the Bev Dice from the microwave because they will be piping hot! 

Wash them with soap and water, dry them off and place back in the freezer or leave out to achieve room temperature.

Choose from a variety of Bev Dice Bags

The reward levels to the right give you the option to choose from different Bev Dice bags that will be made available: Whiskey Dice, Vodka Dice, Scotch Dice, Wine Dice, Beer Dice, Soda Dice, Coffee Dice or the Original Bev Dice logo.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I have put a lot of effort into this project and really feel confident in delivering my supporters of this project a unique and quality product.

The only obstacle that could arise would be my machinery failing, but I have already set forth in solving this problem and have ordered another machine as a back up.

I have set a July 2013 time line for shipment of the Bev Dice, this will allow for production, packing and shipping. Several of my local life long friends will help me with the packing and shipping.
