What is a vodka luge

An ice sculpture, with a hole drilled in the top that exits out the side of the ice sculpture. The shot is poured in through the top of the sculpture, and passes through the ice to arrive at a waiting glass or mouth, chilled to perfection! We are proud to have invented the modern Vodka Luge in 1993, and have created thousands over the years for parties and events all throughout the UK.

General Questions

The Vodka Luge ('Luges' & 'Bespoke Luges') measures approximately 50cm high x 33cm wide x 12cm deep. Fully packaged, the box measures 60cm x 37cm x 27cm, and weighs less than 25kg The footprint of the drainage tray is around 35cm in length x 25cm deep.
Nope! (Well, eventually, but not in transit anyway!) Stored in our special insulated packaging, your Vodka Luge will remain frozen and not start melting until at least 8pm on the day of delivery. Once unwrapped and set up, the average life span of the Vodka Luge is from 4 to 6 hours. The Vodka Luge melting is part of the party experience… watching it transform through the event. If you are not using the Vodka Luge on the day of delivery, it must be stored between -4 degrees Celsius and -15 degrees Celsius. You can store the Vodka Luge in your industrial or domestic freezer, just take it out of the box and store in the protective wrapping!
The HIP Luges measures approximately 80cm high x 50cm wide x 12cm deep. The footprint of the drainage tray measures 63cm in length x 43cm deep, so this is the space you will need to allow for on your bar top or table. Fully packaged, the box measures 87cm x 54cm x 29cm, and weighs less than 50kg.
The Vodka Luge can sit on a bar top, kitchen counter top or on a sturdy table. The ideal height for your table is between 1m – 1.35m to ensure guests can reach the luge easily.
If you choose to leave the tube in the luge (recommended) you can pour anything through. If you choose to remove the tube, it’s important you only pour though high concentration spirits, such as vodka, gin or whiskey. We firmly recommend using cold liquids to maximise the lifespan of your Vodka Luge.

Your ‘party in a box’ includes a drainage tray with a 100cm long drainage tube. This can run into a sink if it’s on a bar top or a kitchen counter, or into any small container or bucket…
You certainly can! Simply add our lighting filters to your basket, found on our 'Other Ice-Services' page. Our lighting packs come with red, green, blue, pink and purple filters so no need to choose a color now!

Other Ice Services

Just like any other standard bowl dish or plate, except you can’t use hot food or liquid. When you receive the delivery, take them out of the box (make sure you seal the box back up if there’s a Vodka Luge inside!) and put in your freezer at home. They will store for months. On the night or day of the special occasion, just take them out of the freezer 15 mins beforehand, to let adjust to room temperature. Use a suitable plate, ideally with a napkin on the plate for the ice to sit on to stop from sliding about. Dish up your favorite dessert, soup, starter (remember they must be cold) and serve up and WOW your guests
The ice glasses work the same as any other glass, but with more fun factor! When you receive the delivery, take them out of the box (make sure you seal the box back up if there’s Vodka Luge inside!) and put in your freezer at home. They will store for months. On the night or day of the special occasion, just take them out of the freezer 15 mins beforehand, to let adjust to room temperature. Pre-mix up your drink; make sure the drink is cold before pouring into the glass. Serve to your guests, you can use a napkin for your guest to hold the glass, but we prefer the fun of holding the ice glass. Icy Drink is the only ice glass that comes with a plastic holder.

For 'Luges' and 'Bespoke Luges' the latest date you can place your order is 2 working days before your party (i.e. order by midnight on Wednesday for delivery on Friday) For 'HIP Luges' the latest date you can place your order is 3 working days before your party (i.e. order by midnight on Tuesday for delivery Friday) Simply place your order using our easy online ordering system, it is quick and easy, and the payment can be done by PayPal or card. Please note we do not delivery on Saturdays, however get your delivery for Friday, it WONT melt! We package the Vodka Luge with dry ice to keep it frozen for two days! So, if your party is Saturday and your luge arrives on Friday, keep it in a cool dry place and crack it open when its party time!
We have an amazing courier network system throughout the UK, to deliver your Vodka Luge. They love ice as much as we do, and travel far & wide, handling 100’s of Vodka Luges every month with great care. To calculate your delivery costs (if any!), simply select a Vodka Luge design, click ‘buy now’ and then ‘go to checkout’. Enter the full postcode for where you would like it delivered, select your delivery date, and the delivery times and options available will be displayed For most areas, we offer 3 delivery slots. 1) 8am – 6pm. 2) 8am – Midday. 3) 8am – 10am. Remember, your Vodka Luge will stay frozen and not start melting until at least 8pm on the day of delivery, so don’t worry if it arrives in the morning – leave it sealed in the box, it will stay nicely frozen and snug in there. Remember delivery is only Tuesday - Friday, if your party is on Saturday, again don't worry, it will stay frozen until then.
If your preferred delivery date isn’t shown, unfortunately this is because our couriers aren’t able to offer their services on this day. Dates that are normally unavailable are Saturdays, Sunday’s, Monday’s, and around public holidays. The good news is you can have your Vodka Luge delivered a day or two earlier if you have freezer storage. This could be a chest freezer at home, or a freezer at a bar or restaurant (just check the Vodka Luge will fit in your freezer first). Keep in mind our Vodka Luges are packaged to last two days, so if your party is Saturday and the luge arrives Friday, it will stay frozen. But if you do have storage, that is even better!
