I had no idea there was a market for luxury ice and Im still hoping there inst but California -based Glace Luxury Ice Company is hoping differently. The company is selling 2.5 inch "luxury" ice spheres for $8.00 a ball!!
The Glices are supposedly hand-carved in Canada and delivered in "elegant packaging" complete with dry ice, and are designed to compliment even the most expensive of drinks. And besides their claims that a sphere is "among the most eficient ways to cool your drink" the company does use purified water to ensure there are no contaminates in the ice spheres to alter the taste of premium drinks or liquors.
