Soapstone could be inching ice toward extinction – at least the purpose of ice for beverages anyway. The material is already available as an alternative to the traditional ice cube, keeping drinks cold without watering down the natural flavor. Now Teroforma has gone one step further and decided to make an entire shot glass out of the substance – four entire shot glasses to be exact.

If you’ve yet to check out the Teroforma Ekke Shot Glasses, or if you’re on the fence, consider this: not only are they made from a material that is functional in both cold and hot, the Ekke quartet of drink-ware also owes its substance for being able to keep out scent and flavor of past drinks. In short, it is impervious to sensory residue, which means your next glass of tequila won’t taste like the whiskey you just had. Works for us!
