Glace Luxury Ice Company’s Ice Spheres -$8 A Pop

When Luke wrote about this ice sphere mold last May there was no pricing info available, but now it seems like it would have been a worthwhile investment no matter how much they were charging for it. That’s because a California-based company is now selling a “premium ice product” called Glice which are basically perfectly spherical 2.5-inch balls of ice. The Glices are supposedly hand-carved in Canada (sure they are) and delivered in “elegant packaging” complete with dry ice, and are designed to compliment even the most expensive of drinks.

And besides their claims that a sphere is “among the most efficient ways to cool your drink” the company does use purified water to ensure there are no contaminates in the ice spheres to alter the taste of premium drinks or liquors. The whole concept has a sort of ‘Pet Rock’ vibe to it, and I guess until the novelty of round ice wears off, they’re probably going to make a small fortune.

    They are not going to make a small fortune on this… The economy isn't what it used to be, and even folks many times richer than most will give every $$ considerable attention before spending it. Wrong time, and wrong product.

    Lame… Lame… Lame… I like my Martinis Shaken anyway. Who the hell wants a ball of Ice hitting you in the upper lip while you are drinking your Vodka. Stupid Idea.

    Damn it, I've been exposed! To be fair, this is a little operation I and Andrew run out of our basements. There's a sucker born every minute.

    “among the most efficient ways to cool your drink”

    Actually, it would be more efficient to use handfuls of ice shavings, which have a much higher surface area than a simple ice sphere. Of course, the more efficiently you cool your drink, the faster the ice melts, and the more watery it becomes.

    Wow. Some consumers must be just completely irrational. Molds might cost like, $2.00 at Ikea in a month. Good lord….
