A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Introducing Batch Bottles
You're probably not going to hire a bartender for every party, poker night, or casual get-together. Even if you're a skilled mixologist, you probably don't want to spend your entire evening mixing individual drinks.
Batch Bottles make it fun and easy to prepare 6 to 8 servings of classic cocktails. You can now prepare a round of drinks hours in advance, chill to preference, and serve at your convenience.
Designed for Ease of Use
Batch Bottles were designed specifically to make the process of mixing cocktails as simple as possible. If you can use a measuring cup, then you can use Batch Bottles.
20 Cocktails. 20 Classics.
In order to develop each of the cocktails on our menu, our team performed hundreds of hours of research and testing. We consulted with working bartenders and studied a bookshelf worth of and cocktail books so that you can follow our recipes with confidence.
Something for Every Occasion
Whether it's poker night, date night, or movie night, we offer a classic cocktail that will complement your gathering and a design that will be certain to spark conversation.
High Quality Glassware
Batch Bottles are manufactured from borosilicate glass, a high-quality glass chemically structured from boron trioxide and silica. Borosilicate glass is more heat resistant than other types of glass, making it ideal for glassware.
Applied Ceramic Labeling
The colorful designs featured on each Batch Bottle consist entirely of applied ceramic labels (ACL), which are printed directly onto the bottle. This intensive process creates an extremely durable design and a refined, crisp look.
The bottle closures are a particularly exciting element of the Batch Bottle design. We use these patented devices specifically for their ability to preserve the integrity of your cocktail, even providing an effective seal for carbonated drinks.
With the integrity of these bohemian crystal closures, you can prepare cocktails hours in advance of your event with confidence. The closure has absolutely no impact on the aroma or flavor of your product.
If you really love Batch Bottles, we will introduce a new set of three cocktail recipes at each of the funding targets below.
Whether you're a fan of spy movies, bubbly, or the literature of Lost Generation expatriates, we have some really exciting recipes here.

Add-on Item: Holiday Cards

With your help, we hope to complete our fundraising campaign within one month, currently scheduled to run from November 7 to December 7.
As soon as we receive the necessary backers, we will begin preparing the production of the units.
The total production process will take up to approximately 7-8 weeks, expected to run through the months of December and January.
Timeline: Fulfillment and Delivery
Shipping is expected to begin by the end of January 2018, with all orders delivered no later than February 28, 2018.
Our team would like to express its sincere gratitude to each and every one of our backers. Batches Bottles would not exist without your support.
Risks and challenges
Great news! Our team has already completed the process of manufacturing the high-quality samples shown in this campaign. As such, we are confident in our ability to deliver the beautiful glass barware that you have ordered.
Occasionally, glassware incurs minor damage during the manufacturing process. We will be inspecting each bottle by hand in order to ensure that you are thrilled with your order.
Given that we plan to ship Batch Bottles during the winter months, we will be vigilant when it comes to weather-related shipping delays. You can expect frequent updates from our team as our items ship!
