We agree there is no substitute for good quality which is why we crafted Monster Ice Cubes as a premium drinking ice! Here are the facts: Ice machine ice melts faster and can alter the flavor of your fine drink. Here’s how—cloudy ice forms because of impurities in the water used to make the ice and because oxygen bubbles get trapped during the freezing process. The trapped oxygen results in faster melting ice, and the impurities negatively affect the flavor of your expensive top-shelf drink. And did you know that ice dilutes 15% to 25% during shaking or stirring? You want something better, unrivaled—you want the superior quality of Monster Ice Cubes! Our ice cubes are made from filtered, pure deionized water which renders a much denser, much slower melting ice that will not alter the flavor of your expensive drink. In the modern cocktail, ice is arguably the most important ingredient, and this is why we created Monster Ice Cubes—when only the best will do. The choice is crystal clear.
