In Search Of: GOURMET ICE

Hi folks,
I enjoy a good ice cube every now and again (fine whiskey, optional) and I'm trying to find a local store that sells high quality "classic cubes." These are cubes that usually are carved from a large block of ice and thus are very clear and pure. A few bars I've been to use them (Whistler, Violet Hour I think...), but I don't know if they're available in a supermarket. I looked up Lang Ice but it looks like all their vending is on the south side.
Anyone know of high quality ice available in the near north / Wicker Park / Bucktown /LoSq area?
