Not all ice is created equal! There is something more special about large ice cubes, and there are lot of benefits in using them too. Individual square ice cubes will melt at a slower rate, introducing less immediate water into the cocktail. The result is a more robust and flavorful drink that stays colder for a longer period of time. Large square ice cubes are also the perfect companion to Scotch & Bourbon drinks.
Did you know Hoshizaki make two different 1 ¼ inch ice cube machines? One is a self contained cuber that has its own built in bin, and the other is called a “head” because it can sit on top of various size bins. See more information about the two ice machines below:
