Concept: The Glacio Clear Sphere Duo seeks to make having clear cocktail ice spheres an affordable household staple for whiskey lovers everywhere. They have created a way to make clear ice straightforward and simple.
Appearance: The Clear Sphere Duo ends up fitting nicely into our freezer on most shelves. It is three pieces, the two halves of the silicone mold come together and nestle into the main body of the Glacio Clear Sphere Duo.
Usage: You are supposed to place warm water into the main body of the system up to a mark. Then you are supposed to put the two halves of the mold together and lower the sphere mold into the body. The water comes up through and some collects in the overflow dip on the top of each sphere to ensure a full and complete sphere.
It takes an average of 24 hours (they recommend no longer than 30) to create the clear and solid spheres. After, you simply wiggle the silicone mold from the body of the unit, pull apart the mold, and remove your spheres. We found them to be cloudy with “ice dust”, but when water or whiskey is poured over it, that comes right off and leaves it beautiful.
Conclusion: We found the clear sphere duo to work surprisingly well. When you go to nice bars, they usually buy their ice from a local manufacturer, or have invested in a system to make them at volume for their customers.
There are few things as nice as having a crystal clear cube sitting in a cocktail, especially a special recipe of your own design made while entertaining to give it that extra “wow” factor. We would definitely recommend the Clear Sphere Duo to hardcore whiskey lovers, and those who are looking to step up their ice game and take their cocktail presentation to another level without too much hassle.
