From glass to ceramics, this septet is proof that you needn’t have to settle for a below-average jug.
However, it may pay to consider just what you pour your water/cocktail/beverage of choice from. As the saying goes, the devil really is in the details, so why not get a conversation-starting jug that gets your guest’s tongues wagging? Or perhaps just a jug that sparks joy for you and you alone? There’s an argument to be made here for upgrading whatever you’re currently using to pour your drinks from and, if it’s the tap, well, my job here is done.
Interiors brand Second Abode has one of the finest selections of one-off and vintage homewares pieces, including a line-up of 70s-esque glass pitchers, while kooky ceramics company Quail designs exotic animal-shaped jugs for those you opt for a slightly more eclectic interior. Use them to store your flowers, or for their original function of pouring you a drink.
Whatever your aesthetic preference, these are the seven stylish jugs we’re loving right now.
Quail leopard jug
This leopard-shaped jug is giving us all kinds of fierce. Whether you use it as a quirky vase or to pour lemonade, this is kitsch done right.
Hay Jochen Holz glass jug
This clashing amber and blue glass jug by Scandinavian interiors brand Hay is as funky as it is functional.
Alice Peto Palm Tree two pint jug
With a pretty tropical pink print, this jug is equally as perfect for holding water as it is for holding flowers. It comes with a lovely gold rim, too.
Second Abode smoked glass pitcherCrafted from sultry smoked glass, Second Abode’s vintage 70s glass jug is crying out to be slotted into your kitchen line-up.
Oliver Bonas orange ceramic jug
In a zesty orange hue and in the shape of the fruit itself, this ceramic jug is perfect for al fresco summer dining.
Oka urchin jug
In a pretty sea blue colour, this urchin-like jug is the jug of dreams. It’s quirky and one hell of a conversation-starter.
Handblown glass pitcherThe cream of the jug crop comes by way of this second-hand, confetti-print jug is a serious showstopper.
