About this project

Welcome to the Arctic!

Arctic Rocks was our idea for the perfect way to chill your whiskey, margarita or any of your favorite beverages without watering it down. It’s not always about creating the newest idea, but finding the best final result.

We adopted this philosophy after numerous tests and failures, as we began our adventure to bring you Arctic Rocks.

Let’s face it, whiskey rocks have been around for a while, but we started thinking outside the box. Through trial and error, we moved from granite to marble and finally soapstone.

Soapstone Discs – One set includes 2 polished soapstone discs for your beverage. Add a monogram for the final touch.

Why soapstone discs?

We asked the same question as we ventured into this project. Soapstone is only one of many different non-porous natural stones. However unlike granite or marble, the thermal-conductivity of soapstone allows for a longer lasting chill to your drink. The shape of the disc has no corners to harm drinking glasses and allows ample room for a monogram. For those of you who like hot tea or coffee, soapstone also absorbs the heat to keep your drink at the perfect temperature longer.

We didn’t stop there.

Himalayan Salt Rocks - One set includes 5 salt rocks that will add the perfect amount of style & salt to your tequila or margaritas.

While researching different types of stone, we discovered the perfect ingredient to maximize your drinking pleasure of a margarita, Himalayan salt rocks. These Himalayan salt rocks are perfect for tequila lovers! The stone is strong enough to withstand multiple uses without wearing away quickly but will still be able to impart the great taste of salt into your tequila or margarita. Pink Himalayan Salt is naturally anti-microbial filled with many natural minerals that are good for the body. For stone longevity we do recommend towel drying after use.

So you want to know more?

Arctic Rocks was founded out of a garage by two college buddies in Mansfield, Texas. We have started to perfect our production by cutting the stone with heavy-duty, high-grade blades, and finishing each stone by hand. But, we need your help. We are seeking to expand our operations and need to upgrade some of our equipment to increase the efficiency of our production (A table would be nice!), and find more space to store inventory and equipment.

We are extremely excited about this project, and are looking for your support to help us make it a success.

Risks and challenges

As with most start-up companies, securing reliable and quality materials is always a challenge. Fortunately we live in a large metropolitan area that gives us access to numerous stone dealers should our current provider fail.
