Enjoy craft cocktails at home! ReJigger is an innovative bar tool that makes creating delicious cocktails fast and easy.


New Stretch Goal!

Thank you everyone for helping us reach our goal.  There's still a couple days left, so let's see if we can reach $85,000.  If we can, I'll get custom ReJigger coasters printed and include a set of 4 fun coasters for all the backers to give their ReJiggered cocktails a place to rest.

Making cocktails has never been easier

The ReJigger simplifies the process of making a cocktail by combining all the bar tools you need into one simple tool. No more worrying about measurements - just pour your ingredients into the ReJigger's compartments.  Empty the ReJigger into a pint glass filled with ice, place the ReJigger on top to seal, and shake.  Once the drink is properly mixed and chilled, tilt the ReJigger to the side and strain your cocktail into a glass. Because it's so easy to use, the ReJigger is perfect for making a quick cocktail after work or for throwing a party where your guests can make their own cocktails.

The ReJigger measures all your ingredients and works with a standard pint glass to make a delicious cocktail.  Just pour, shake, and strain!

Let's Start a Home Cocktail Revolution!

I am a product designer and lover of good food and drink.  Over the past couple of years, I have discovered the pleasure of drinking the craft cocktails that have become popular at many local bars and restaurants.  Enjoying a cocktail with friends and loved ones was so nice that I set out to learn how to mix them myself.  But I quickly discovered that it was not easy.

First, I had to have all the right tools.  Just getting them all out to make a cocktail was a hassle at times. Then, I had to remember the exact amounts of each ingredient I needed or spend time searching for a recipe. The designer in me knew there had to be a better way, so I set out to rethink the process of making cocktails.

The ReJigger's compartments are specifically sized to work with the widest variety of ingredients, in order to create an endless number of well-balanced cocktails. It comes with a recipe guide for 9 classic cocktails.  No need to measure- just look at the ingredients you need and let the ReJigger do the rest.  And these recipes are only a starting point...

The ReJigger comes with a basic recipe guide to get you started.

I designed the ReJigger to give people the confidence and freedom to experiment and create new cocktails.  Because the ReJigger provides the basic framework for the cocktail, you can mix and match just about any ingredient and let your imagination run wild.  For more recipe ideas, visit homecocktailrevolution.com.

The Details

It took several rounds of prototyping and testing to develop the ReJigger.  Much of the early testing involved finding the perfect size for each compartment in order to make the widest range of well-balanced cocktails.  It was hard work, we had no choice but to drink many, many test cocktails to ensure we achieved the perfect balance.  The result is the patent pending design you see here:

The current ReJigger prototype shown in the photos is CNC machined from polycarbonate.  The final production ReJigger will be injection molded with Eastman Tritan, a super durable plastic that is BPA free and dishwasher safe.  This is the same plastic used in many baby bottles- so if it's good enough for babies, it's good enough for me.

Production Plan

I am a supporter of bringing more manufacturing back to The States, so I am committed to manufacturing the ReJigger here.  I have lined up a manufacturer in California that is ready to start making the production tooling once I raise the necessary funding. 

With 11 years of experience designing and bringing various consumer products to the market, I have put together a conservative and realistic plan to get the ReJigger through production.  In fact, just about every other product I have worked on has been significantly more complex to manufacture.  I have a very high degree of confidence in being able to deliver the ReJigger without issues.

Produce Injection Molds for production:  Mid July - Mid September

Test and make any necessary modifications:  Mid September - End of September

Start of Production:  First week of October

Pack and ship the ReJigger:  Mid October - End of October

Join the revolution

I invite you to join me in the Home Cocktail Revolution by supporting this Kickstarter campaign.  Your funding will help pay for the production tooling and cover the cost of the initial production run.  In return, you will be one of the first to own a ReJigger- giving you a head start on your path to a lifetime of delicious cocktails.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

As with any injection molded plastic part, there are many unknowns until the first shots come off the tool, but I've done everything to make sure this is a simple part to manufacture. Everything from the design of the ReJigger to the packaging is meant to be as simple and efficient as possible.

The biggest challenge will actually be packing and shipping out the ReJigger. Depending on the number of backers, I have identified a few options for efficiently fulfilling the rewards. I will do everything in my power to get the product out on time, and if any unforeseen issues arise, I promise to be timely in communication about any delays.

The other challenge I face is getting the word out. Please help me share ReJigger - every blog or social networking post counts. Thanks for checking out my Kickstarter. I hope you join the Home Cocktail Revolution. Cheers!

FAQ

  • For now, ReJigger is only available for shipping in the U.S. I am committed to being able to fulfill all the rewards on time, so one of the choices I had to make to ensure this was to limit to shipping to the U.S. only.
