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]
