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, Castrol 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 range of high-quality merchandise, all bearing that familiar post-war branding. The latest addition is this Classic Mini Oil Barrel, which is anticipated to become a popular desk tidy in homes and offices throughout the country.

As the name suggests, the Classic Mini Oil Barrel is a scale representation of the barrels Castrol supplied to vehicle workshops from the late Forties onwards. Finished in hard-wearing enamel, the baby barrel measures 110mm tall, has a removable lid and a capacity of 300ml – perfect for storing everything from travel sweets to a clutch of pens (not included).
