For more than 120 years, British company Castrol has been at the forefront of oil technology.

Company founder Charles Wakefield launched his first vehicle engine oil in 1906, a pioneering blend of mineral and castor oils that offered unrivalled lubrication properties.

Since then and through many further innovations, Castrol oils have lubricated the beating heart of everything from speed records to Mars missions.

Interestingly, Castrol was the first company of its kind to promote its products through sponsorship, which swiftly led to advertising and merchandising. By 1946, when the iconic Castrol Classic branding was launched, they offered a wide range of workshop regalia in the distinctive green, white and red colours that had been synonymous with the brand since the early 1900s.

Inspired by those products, Castrol Classic Oils has produced a new range of high-quality merchandise, all bearing that familiar post-war branding. Among the 23 product lines are Classic Pouring Jugs, specifically sized to decant accurate volumes of Castrol’s ‘liquid engineering’ in imperial volumes, as shown in vehicle handbooks that predate the introduction of the metric system.

Beautifully shaped in a hard-wearing tin, these handy Classic Pouring Jugs can be purchased individually in half-pint, pint and quart sizes, or as a full set of three.
