Luckily for me as my girlfriend is a studio potter I put this to her and she has agreed to take the challenge and handthrow a new jug to my design from porcelain. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Perhaps this is a frivolous thread but out of interest how many of you dilute your favourite drams?
They are produced en-masse and distributed to bars/ pubs/ hotels etc for free to advertise their products. Further the shelf live for the use of these jugs is very short. They will get broken in a bar environment no matter how good they are but they also have a short life span even if the surrvive intact due to the next new batch of jugs arriving to take their place.
The tat they sell in the distillery shop is generally the same as the promotional stuff and only makes up a small fraction of what is given out free.
Therefore they make sure they produce the cheapest product possible.
Of course you will get the really good ones in the shops at times but I do not think they are worth the money. A jug is a jug so go down to your local homestore and buy a proper one for half the price
Some time ago I also acquired (from a bar who had some spare! ) a large Bowmore jug:

...that I now use as my 'secret whisky piggy bank' to save up spare coins so I can buy another bottle of malt.
Save your cash for the nectar!

dont know from "when opened"
but uk law states that the best before date on water in the uk is 1 full year from date of bottling for sparkling water, and 2 years from day of bottling for still water.
