Suntory 3D-Milled Ice Cube Sculptures

Perhaps one of the reasons we love crushed ice so much is that it finally smashes the boring right out of the typical rectangular ice cube. Japanese brewers/distillers Suntory have found their own way to make ice even nicer with these stunningly intricate ice cube sculptures.

Teaming up with a Japanese ad agency, these are said to be the world’s first 3D-milled ice cubes, and they look sensational, with an astounding level of detail. It’d almost be a shame to pour whisky over the Statue of Liberty, Michelangelo’s David, or a ferocious shark lunging out of the water. Almost. Now, pouring a Mountain Dew over these brilliant creations, yes, now that would clearly be a shame. [Purchase]
