The Secret to Great Cocktails is One Ideal Ingredient

Perfect ice Scotsman’s professional ice machines are now available for the home.

Whether it’s a sour, fizz, or sling, cocktail culture is thriving. Master mixologists and home bartenders alike are getting more creative and daring in their drinks, incorporating everything from bitters to botanicals.

Keen drink-makers likely have all the gadgets, too, like, muddlers, shakers, and strainers.

One of the most crucial components of a delicious, well-made beverage, however, is often the most overlooked: ice.

Fresh, pure ice, and the right kind, can elevate a drink from tasty to tantalizing.

No matter what kind drink you prefer, one thing can make it better: Scotsman ice, the ideal ingredient.

The crystal-clear, odourless ice melts slower, won’t clump or dilute your drinks, and is taste free. It’s flawless.

Now, you can mix up drinks like a pro in your own kitchen or backyard bar with Scotman’s commercial-grade ice systems designed for home use.

Scotsman makes several types of ice machines for those who want high-calibre refreshments in the comfort of their own home: a luxury you deserve.

Throughout the summer, Western Living readers have the chance to enter and win a new prize from Scotsman each month.

Scotsman ice is perfect for premium liquor and mixed drinks and turn any beverage occasion into something special, a must-have for those who love to entertain and impress their guests.

There’s nothing worse than putting the final touches on a cocktail than pulling out ice that smells “old” or, worse, like the contents of your freezer.

What may be less well-known is that there are different shapes and types of ice for different kinds of drinks.

Not only does Scotsman pure ice keep drinks cold, it also helps retain their flavour.

After over 50 years of research, innovation, and superior customer service, Scotsman is proud to say there are more than a million Scotsman ice machines at work around the world today, in more than 100 countries.

Scotsman’s Brilliance Gourmet Cuber produces crystal-clear, hard, odourless ice with a distinct form. The unique shape prevents clumping and allows the cubes to melt slowly. This means the ice won’t dilute drinks as quickly, and they’ll stay truer to the flavours you want.

The stainless-steel Scotsman Legacy Cuber makes ultimate clear-as-glass, non-clumping ice. It fits neatly under the counter, and its odourless cubes stay fresh.

Scotsman’s Brilliant Nugget Ice Machine makes ice that’s soft, crunchy, and chewable. Scotsman invented the compacted form and introduced it to the food-service industry in 1981. Until recently, nugget ice was only found at select restaurants.

Fun to crunch, the nuggets absorb drinks’ flavours and cool beverages quickly. It’s ideal for soft or blended drinks, smoothies, and food displays—and makes drinks instantly Instagrammable.

Ideal ice is the ultimate luxury.

The First Prize is a bottle of Johnnie Walker “18 Year Old” Scotch Whiskey (with vanilla, almond and orange notes) and Nachtmann Noblesse Scotch glass, decanter, and tray set, worth $350.
