The idea for the name ‘gobbular’ came from the idea of putting something ‘in your gob’. I liked the casual reference as I wanted the platform to feel accessible rather than catering only to an elite customer base.
In a similar vein, the icon consists of a bubble-like circular graphic that looks like someone’s had a bite out of it.
The website is divided into two sections, DRINK and DESIGN. They can be explored separately, although the drink and design pages for each whisky are also directly linked.
Each DRINK entry contains the corresponding collage, with information such as tasting notes, scores as well as food and drink pairings.
gobbular is an ongoing project, where further whisky entries will be added as tastings continue. There are also plans to add other drink categories, such as wine, tea and rum.
