Drink Like A Fish

Named so for the delightful glug, glug, glug sound that it makes when you pour, this multi-colored ceramic cod water jug has been a tabletop favorite since the 1870s. Made in the UK.

Uncommon Knowledge: Gluggle jugs were first made in England in the 1870s and became increasingly popular after they were given as a gift to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 1958. When filled with liquid, air is trapped in the fish's tail. As that liquid is poured out again, the air is gradually released and produces the famous gurgling sound.

Please note, this item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Comments about GLUGGLE JUG:

    I bought this jug and a few other items for a bridl shower, and I have to say that I never heard so many, "Oooohs," and "Ahhhhhs" when the bride to be opened it up and people were told what it did. Even tho past reviews said that the jug only makes the "gluggle" sound a few times, so what? You keep refilling it and enjoying the fun! I love your website and all the other items that I bought for the shower on your site. Keep up the good work!

          I bought this for a gift. It's beautiful.

          I wish it could glug every time you poured.

              Disappointed with size and finish of fish. It's not painted evenly and there's a part where i think it wasn't painted. For the price, however, it's not feasible to return so I have to see in what unsuspectable person I re-gift this to.

              I had looked at these pitchers for years before ordering one. Although it was smaller than I expected, I did love the bright colors and unusual shape. However, the reason I sent it back was that it only "glugs" once or twice, when you tip it down and back. I was expecting it to make the sound for the entire time you are pouring, which seemed to me to be what the description says... but it doesn't. Then I realized that I probably would not use it for pouring anything someone was going to actually drink, because cleaning up and in the tail would be difficult. I decided it was not worth the money to just put it on a shelf.
