Gourmet Ice Cubes

The Titanic sinks in your G & T

Gourmet ice cubes don’t always mean fancy little ice cubes that represent the Titanic.

Police in the south of Chile have arrested a man on suspicion of stealing ice from the Jorge Montt Glacier.

Officials in the town of Cochrane found five tonnes of ice in the back of his truck.

Scientists say the glacier, in the Patagonia region, is retreating faster than any other in Chile.

Police suspect the ice was destined for the capital, Santiago, to make gourmet ice cubes for use in upmarket bars and restaurants.

Jorge Montt Glacier

The BBC’s Gideon Long, in Santiago, says tourists in southern Chile are often served whisky chilled with glacial ice – which has an extra kudos because it comes directly from the glaciers.

  1. I do love those titanic ice cubes though! I guess it’s been far enough along now that it’s not such in bad taste to have this, considering ice is what sunk the titanic in the first place! :p

    • @Rischmöller, you are right. I have often appreciated non-politically correct humour. It’s the cynic that was instilled in me during a military career.

  2. @Rischmöller, you’ve seen enough of my stuff to realise that I am well on the irreverent side of life. It’s more fun over here. LOL
