About

More than ever we are being made aware that other sparkling drinks just don’t quite feel right anymore, BUBL lets you stay in control of what you drink, whatever your choice. Get ready, steady, BUBL! 

Whether you want to impress your friends with a cool new cocktail or treat the family to a more healthly, tasty and unique sparkling drink, BUBL has the answer... add a sparkle to healthy minty tap water, add a twist to a party cocktail or experience a new edge to your favourite wine or flat beer .

BUBL works in three easy steps – just twist, push and BUBL.

We are also introducing PORTABUBL, the world’s first hand-held portable fizzy drinks maker.

To meet all of your drinks needs we have developed three stylish products – welcome to the BUBL family. With BUBL you can fizz anything from water and cordials to wine and cocktails. With REBUBL you can keep the fizz in an already carbonated drink, stopping it going flat and helping you save money!

RECYCLABLE CARTRIDGES

BUBL and PORTABUBL use specially designed CO2 cartridges, which are disposable and recyclable. This means less hassle, as there’s no need to refill cartridges and of course, it’s so much better for the environment. In the future these cartridges will be available to buy both online and in stores.

DESIGN TO LOVE

Getting BUBL to look so sleek and chic has been no easy task – we’ve created hundreds of designs in search of perfection and we’ve also spent four years developing the patented mechanism that makes PORTABUBL so simple to use.

HOW IT WORKS

There are no batteries to replace or electrics to plug in – BUBL works entirely on pressure. Fill the BOTL with the drink you want to add a sparkle to, screw on the lid and simply put the BOTL on the BUBL dock, twist, push and BUBL. 

BUBL has an automatic shut off system that stops the flow based on pressure, so it’s not possible to over fizz.

PORTABUBL works in the same way, simply tilt the BOTL so that you can see the bubbles passing through. Using cold drinks straight from the fridge gives the very best results for fizzing!

PLEASE BE A PART OF THIS GREAT PROJECT

We think the BUBL family is a truly fantastic set of new products and we can’t wait to share the next stage of this project with you. With your support, you’ll soon be able to see BUBL, PORTABUBL and REBUBL on the shelves – and know that it is your investment that made it all possible.

PROCESS AND PROGRESS

We don't underestimate the size of this project but we have the people in place to make this exciting project happen. We are following a detailed plan and continue to work very closely with manufacturers on production targets and timelines.

WHAT YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL HELP US DO

We’ve done most of the hard work already, but to get BUBL on the shelves we need your help. With your backing we’ll be able to take our working models into production and to accept our first production orders. Having closely monitored the home carbonation market for some years, we think, quite simply, that there is a great opportunity to launch a stylish fizzy drinks product that has pride of place in the kitchen. No longer will home carbonation systems be banished to the back of the cupboard – BUBL will bring fizzy drink making into the 21st century!

THE TEAM

James is the CEO and has been involved in start up companies for over 15 years. He’s worked with Mike the inventor from the very beginning and brought the team together that works on BUBL today. He’s passionate that “Ready, Steady, BUBL” will become a household phrase. Mike is the inventor of BUBL and runs the engineering behind it. Tired of reaching for an opened cola that had gone flat, Mike used his skills as an ex-aircraft engineer to devise the mechanism behind the BUBL. Crispin heads up design and marketing. With years of experience in design and brand building behind him, he has been instrumental in guiding the team to the final BUBL design, which is both unique and market leading.

Risks and challenges

Due to the unique nature of the BUBL products and so that we can make them simple to use, the complex mechanics lie in their construction. As we move into production, we may have to refine the design and spec, which could affect the time to production.

The BUBL Team has built relationships with manufacturers over the past few years but there is always a chance that we encounter changes at the manufacturing stage.

The small but highly dedicated BUBL Team is doing everything it can to keep unexpected delays to a minimum.
