If you're reading this, chances are you've been to a bar where they served you a drink with their logo in it and you're wondering how on earth it got there. Well, most likely it was made using our original Ice Stamp
The entire process takes only a few seconds to complete. If you watch the clip below you will notice that no additional equipment is required and there is no need to heat the stamp beforehand. The trick to creating your own branded cocktails is to simply press the stamp into the ice and let nature take its course.
At this point you may be wondering if any type of brass stamp will work, and the answer is yes. However, if you want the impression to last more than a couple of seconds before melting then you will need a little help from the specialists.

Creating a lasting impression
While it may be possible to create an impression using a standard Wax Seal Stamp, you're going to need something with considerably more weight to it if you want the impression to last. All our Deluxe Ice Stamps are made using lead-free brass and use a deep engraving method, at least 3-4 times the depth of a regular stamp. We have an 'Extra deep' option which requires 6 individual engraving passes at almost an hour each to complete (hence the additional premium).
The actual stamp head is crafted from a 1/2 inch thick, solid piece of lead-free brass and is hefty enough that when placed on top of the ice (as shown below) it will press down without you even having to lift a finger!
Is it worth the preparation and effort?
In our opinion this magnificent work of art epitomises 'attention to detail'. You may wonder what's the point if it's just going to melt anyway, and that is exactly the point. It's the smallest of details that can create the biggest impact on your guests, no matter how pretentious it may seem to those outside of your circle. A sincere effort to make a genuine impression will never go unnoticed, and we believe that the photos speak for themselves.
Our ice stamps are the perfect addition to an existing set of barware tools, whether it be a gift for an aspiring mixologist or bartending pro.
