Top tips to reduce the risk of contamination:

  • If using an ice bucket and scoop, make sure all are thoroughly cleaned before use.
  • When cooling bottles in ice, try not to be tempted to use the ice from inside the bucket. Who knows where the bottles have been, they could contaminate the ice. Always best to be safe!
  • Very easily done - tearing open your beloved bag of ice and using your hands to retrieve the ice for your drinks. It’s your hands that are dirty not the ice!
  • If ever abroad be cautious of the ice being added to your drinks. Question if the ice is bagged or has been made using tap water. If the tap water isn’t suitable to drink neither is the ice.
  • “In a recent consumer survey we found that 71% of consumers agree it is important to have ice in the house when entertaining”
