to the Jug Dealer website!|
If you are a collector who has a passion for whisky jugs or water jugs (pitchers), we may have something to interest you. Even if you are not a collector why not just browse through the following pages, perhaps they may inspire you to start your own collection!
Let us introduce ourselves. We are Alan and Jo Waterhouse, we are ex-publicans who also happen to enjoy the odd wee dram or two, and over the years we have developed our own collection of whisky jugs and other items of breweriana. We decided that if we like collecting them, maybe other people do too, so we started this website especially for people like us.
We do treasure our collection, although relatively speaking it's not very big (yet). We have, however, duplicated some of the items over the years and we are happy to make these available for sale to other collectors. We do have many more whisky jugs than we show on the website, so if there is something you want and we don't have it displayed here then please get in touch. We may just have the jug you're looking for.
The ceramic jugs relate mainly to various Scottish Highland distilleries (some no longer in existence in their own right), who produce wonderful malt and blended whiskies. We also have some nice items from Irish whiskey distillers.
Our beer and lager jug section may be attractive to collectors who are interested in breweries, both past and present. We also have a selection of advertising figures, bar pump heads, pub mirrors, advertising trays, pub clocks and the odd bit of Guinness memorabilia.
As smoking is no longer allowed in public places, ceramic advertising ashtrays are becoming more collectable. We have a number for sale in the Vintage Ashtray section, some of which are ideal display companions to the advertising jugs that we have for sale. We have also added a section for water jugs which advertise cigarettes and tobacco products which will become more difficult to get hold of in the future.
We enjoy hearing from collectors from all over the world, so please feel free to contact us and tell us about your own collection. We are also always happy to hear from people who have individual items or collections to sell. We are also happy to offer advice on individual valuations, history, or collections - within our limited knowledge.
We hope you enjoy browsing through our website. Cheers!
This website was updated on 2nd July 2017. If you're a regular visitor you may have noticed a few changes on the website - we have added some payment buttons to allow UK customers to buy immediately using either Paypal or credit card. We are still happy to welcome our customers from outside the UK but ask that you send us an email with details of the items you would like to buy, so that we can work out the best shipping cost for you.
