If you love to be the barman during parties or gatherings, you surely know that it is essential to know the exact amounts of the ingredients for each cocktail, have a well-stocked liquor bar, and a good ice machine. Both trendy cocktails as well as classic ones require a very special type of ice cube. One that is big enough to keep the cocktail cold, yet small enough to allow you to enjoy the drink, and also the guilty pleasure of chewing ice.
In that sense, Scotsman is positioned as the specialized brand in the category. Aside from the important technological advantages of ice machines, Scotsman has in its favor having introduced the Chewable Ice (1981) to the food industry. The shape of the cube not only reduced the visits to the dentist for compulsive ice chewers but also provided cocktails and their makers with a type of crunchy ice cube capable of cooling and adding charm to drinks.
But this brand -that is also the pioneer in the development of home ice machines in the 50’s- knows well that there are other drinks that require an ice cube of a larger size (gourmet ice). It happens that, adding tiny ice cubes to a Scotch is not only wrong but also heresy. For that reason, Scotsman has created a solution for every need and the choice will depend on the type of barman that you are.
