When winter ice forms on Norwegian lakes, fishermen drill round holes in the surface and drop their lines through.
They clip a ‘pilk’ onto the fishing line, a lure designed especially for ice fishing. Pilk ice cubes are made in the same spirit, complete with perfect round holes for dropping straws through. When plunged into a cold drink, the ice cubes float horizontally on the surface, holding the straw upright in the glass. Pilk decorates a drink without needing any embellishments, and cools liquids longer than small ice cubes do. Pilk adds good design to every drink – plus, it provides the perfect icebreaker for every party.
