Stretch goal #3 reached!

We reached stretch goal #3! Every Porthole is coming with a pair of custom aperitif glasses!

It's happening a bit faster than I ever imagined - I'm still working out design options with the factory. I will post renderings of the discussed options soon. Gotta get back to work.

Thank you!

      Just ordered five. Would love more accompanying recipes out of the box!

      Will there be a possibility of getting an extra set of those said aperitif glasses at an extra charge? I would love to do so because I usually have 4 people over, not just one other and it would be nice to have a matching set

      I cannot wait! I've been telling everyone about this. As there is no doubt you'll hit a half million, any secret stretch goal #4 lurking around the corner?

      @Ron Lussier Yes, two glasses per Porthole.

      Don't give Martin any more work than he already has before him, with a cookbook. I just want my portholes! Can I suggest, if you hit the $800,000 level you have a forum set up within your website, where we can share recipes and ideas. I'm confident you'll hit $1,000,000 though. You'll be needing to put lots of money and effort into production. Congratulations.

      It is so elegant! A true functional and classy design! It will be a unique present for great friends!

      I just ordered two black portholes. Will they come with two glasses apiece? I'd love more recipes.

      So, This is my first time backing a project. After I authorized a payment, when do you inform them of the shipping address? Thanks so much! And this by far is the best project!!

      +1 Charles on the recipes.

    11. Nicholas Sylvain-Obsidian Tormentor on August 20, 2012

      Yeah, more recipies would be very appropriate AND useful!

      Congratulations Martin!! Would love to see Charles' idea for another stretch goal. A recipe books would be extremely helpful in getting started.

      That's great! I can use those instead of my red Solo cups.

    14. Chuck Marshall on August 20, 2012

      I can't wait to see the renderings. Our pledges just went from good value to amazing value! BTW, if there is a stretch goal # 4. I think a great choice would be a small recipe book for oils, drinks and teas. Maybe 4 or 5 of each to get the party started once the boxes are open at home!

      Thanks again Martin. Great work.

    15. Anne on August 20, 2012

      This is fantastic. I hope there is another stretch goal!

      Question: Would it be possible to add another tier for 3 Portholes? Or could I just raise my donation to add in the money for another porthole and it would just be noted somewhere?

      Hi Martin: I think I was the one to put you over $300K with my $375 pledge - yippee!

    17. Ho Ching Ng on August 20, 2012

      Not to be too greedy and getting ahead of ourselves, but possibly a stretch goal #4 of $500,000 and something to go along with it?

    18. Charles Tremewen on August 20, 2012

      Wish we could get kickstarter in Canada to support our venture in building our micro-distillery - Long Table Distillery. Very nice work Martin and glad to be supporting this kind of innovation.
