Update #3

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!

      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?

      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.

      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!!

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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?

      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.
