Whiskey jug

Haig Scotch Whiskey water jubCarlton Ware Haig scotch whiskey jug
made in England 1960s

This scotch whiskey water jug is both practical and collectible. It’s an ‘advertisement’ jug; these mass produced jugs were given away to pubs in the 50s and 60s –not sold to the public. The idea being that the public would be so impressed by the glamour of having water added to their drink by a ‘branded jug’ that they would continue to order their brandy/whiskey by name. Ah! the 60s, when advertising and impressing people was so easy!

The jug- being made by Carlton Ware- has a beautiful integral handle [not quite seen in image] and fantastic 60s square-shaped styling. It is very modern in form – and in fantastic condition.  Makes a great vase, too.

In my collection I also have a Rene Briand Brandy water jug, made in Italy, and a McCallum’s Perfection Scots Whiskey water jug, made by Wade, England – both also in the 60s. These water jugs are adding up! They make a fantastic addition to the retro bar.

The Haig scotch whiskey jug is for sale: $AUD55
