White Keys are ice-cubes made of pure Italian white marble. They are hand-made, cut out of a single slab selected in the quarry. White Keys are the ultimate sustainable ice cube – they never melt so the drink is always fresh. Each cube keeps cold many times longer than disposable ice. The cubes are sterile and a great conversation opener.
Sirio Guerriero is a man devoted to Sicily, Siracusa, and to a cold drink. He is the proprietor of Casina Degli Spiriti, a house of fine Sicilian and ‘imported’ liquor and wine, in Siracusa. Possibly during the long hot Sicilian summer as his drink slipped away, he dreamed of the indestructible ice cube. A few years ago the obvious answer came to him, Italian sculpture. He created the perfect ice-cube from white marble, clean, green(white) and good to be seen.

Siracusa is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, it abounds in cultural history, particularly from the classical Greek period. It was the birth place of Archimedes, whose principle may have been influential in the creation of White Keys. Cicero said about Siracusa - it is "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all". Its glory continued through the Roman and Byzantine Empires. Eventually Palermo became more important in commercial and political terms, but Siracusa has retained its magic in culture as well as having a grand view up to Etna, and being washed by the fresh seas of its gulf.
