What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About One More Dram

We are two friends with a passion for whisky. We regularly get together to swap samples of recently opened bottles and share a dram in good company. We were looking for a whisky journal that could be used to write down and compare notes when tasting new whiskies. The whisky journals that we discovered during our search shared common problems that left us wanting more:

  • They’re too big and bulky, so you can’t comfortably take them to a whisky bar or tasting.
  • They don’t provide enough space to write down your own notes, relying primarily on ambiguous “flavour wheels” and grayscale (seriously!) “color meters”.
  • They aren’t designed with all whiskies in mind. Some are more appropriate for Scotch, others for Bourbon, etc.

Unable to find anything that met our needs, we decided to design our own whisky journal, one that would address the problems listed above. Introducing the Whisky Journal by One More Dram:

  • It’s small enough to fit in a pocket or purse and bring to a whisky bar or tasting.
  • Provides plenty of space to write down your tasting notes.
  • Includes a color reference chart printed in color, not grayscale!
  • Features a table of contents.
  • Designed with all whiskies in mind: Scotch, Bourbon, Irish, Canadian, Japanese, and other whiskies from around the world.

We need your help to make our whisky journal available to all enthusiasts! Design and layout of the whisky journal are already complete. We’ve printed a proof for review (seen above) and are now seeking funds to mass produce and distribute the whisky journal.
