A week in pictures πŸ“Έ

Love and Thanks to:
1) Our lovely customers, friends, staff: new and old 🍻
2) aka Tom the legend for stepping in at (very) short notice so we could help another staff member find their lost pup (found 🐢)
3) The great producers of our lovely beverages (here's a delicious grapefruit in the Summer Sun β˜€οΈ
4) Gratuitous shot of Dana, the edible puppy 😍, and yes! We love you to bring your 4 legged friends 🧑

Cheers, !


I was going to start the day with a post about the 2nd release whiskey that we managed to source for y'all... or the many beautiful chilled wines we have in the fridges just perfect for this summer sun (make the most folks πŸ™ˆ)πŸ₯‚β„οΈβ˜€οΈ....
BUT instead, I've decided to show you the fresh drop from that Graeme has organised... you ask, and we deliver! (Well, tbh the brewery does that bit 😝)




is back on the shelves! πŸ₯³πŸΉ
Delicious rums and vodkas made by our friends at The Public Spirit, which are ethically led, responsibly sourced, independently made... and taste πŸ‘ŒπŸ₯ƒ

LIQUOR WITH A CONSCIENCE... these guys are making a great product that genuinely gives back because they believe nobody should go hungry. They also believe in the power of community spirit, so it’s their commitment that every bottle sold feeds 4 people in need. Nobody knew they could feel this great the morning after the night before.

Spiced Rum:
Enjoy the mouthwatering flavours of honeycomb, apricot, and cinnamon in this distinctive blended rum. Additional flavouring elements include salted toffee, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and star anise. Best enjoyed neat over ice or with a splash of ginger beer 🍺

Golden Rum:
A truly fantastic blend of handpicked rums from Barbados, Jamaica, Panama, Trinidad, and Venezuela. Full of ripe banana, coconut and vanilla oak, a rum that's the perfect sipper but also ideal as a base for cocktails!

There are two vodkas in this one bottle - one made from molasses and one from 100% British grain and each distilled four times - to create a deliciously smooth blend that's unique, clean, crisp, sweet and perfectly versatile.

Enjoy this spirit on the rocks, with tonic, soda, or in your favourite cocktail.

BUY 1 BOTTLE FEED 4 PEOPLE… every bottle sold provides four meals for people in need through diverting good quality surplus food to foodbanks around the UK - so a lot of good for people and the environment - and great drinks too of course!

The Public Spirit are based in Manchester, and a portion of their profits go to helping local causes, such as food banks in the area.



There's Chubble ahead.....and we know case each of these, and that's all we have folks 😲 🫨 🫒

We can't promise these will be around for very long...

It's Mike's last day at the Bottle & Jug Dept today! πŸ₯ΉπŸ˜­πŸ’”

This human is truly one of the very best, and we know we will miss him so much! He's been with us since day 1, and we couldn't have done it without him (and certainly wouldn't have had so much fun)... Keep being you, Mike!

We wish him nothing but the absolute best in life, and hope he will grace us with his presence again one day in the future, when well travelled and wanting to get back to his roots 🌳

Do pop in and say bye today if you can, we can't be there as we're up at on our first day behind the wheel!! 🦊πŸͺΆπŸ˜³


Hello lovely people!! And a happy day 2 to you!!!

Mike and Graeme are in the house today... basically, you're dream team πŸ™ŒπŸ½ 😍 and they can't wait to serve you beer!

beers are going down a storm... come and get the Jam Sour and Omicron Pale before they're gone! (We'll have new ones going on to replace them, though, don't worry πŸ˜…πŸ»)

Also, co-owner and Assistant brewer from Gravity Well Brewing will be paying a visit to the Bottle & Jug later, to chat to you about their amazing beers 🍻 Heyl yeah 🀟🏽



GRAVITY WELL BREWING *(read to the end for the most exciting bit!)

Happy Thursday, you lovely lot! Are you dreaming of doing a sickie from work tomorrow just to get a head start on the TTO shenanigans?? Don’t worry, we won’t tell….🀭

And what a line-up this year! Here at the Bottle & Jug, we’re super excited to be working with our friends from East London’s indie brewery . These guys love a New England style, and have some incredible signature hazy, juicy pales and IPAs… but they also love experimenting, and have plenty of new beers, including sours and stouts, coming out regularly.

We’ll be pouring:
E=JamC^2 (a very drinkable 5% ABV Raspberry and Blackcurrant Jam sour collab with Howling Hops)
Cosmic Dust (a 4.1% session IPA that’s double dry hopped with Mosaic, backed up with Enigma for a tropical fruit aroma and a surprisingly full body)
Omicron Persei (A 5% ABV juicy hazy pale ale with Citra in the whirlpool & Simcoe in the dry hop)
Smell-O-Scope: Idaho-7 (a 5% ABV single hop hazy pale using Idaho-7 – a hop that is known for making beers brighter and more complex)
Galaxies Apart (a 6% NEIPA double dry hopped with Citra and Enigma: juicy with aromas of mango, papaya, and orange)
The Information Paradox (a 6.5% ABV juicy NEIPA with dank and juicy stone fruit notes and six different hop varietals)
We’ll have cans for takeout as well 🍻

**⚠️ Andy Gledhill, assistant brewer and part owner of Gravity Well Brewing, WILL BE IN THE SHOP with us on Saturday afternoon 🀟🏽πŸ’ͺ and, of course, happy to chat to y’all about BEER 🍺

We’re looking forward to seeing you! 🫑


For those that aren't yet in the know, it's the 3rd Worthing TTO from the 5-7 April, and it's going to be AWESOME!!

The Bottle & Jug Dept are proud to be partnering with to bring you some of their truly fabulous beers and hopefully introduce you to a brewery that deserves recognition.


Our resident craft beer and natural wine expert, Breeze, is here all day to fulfil your Sunday drinking desires.

To be fair, what Breeze doesn't know about craft beer, natural wine, and even kombucha, just isn't worth knowing.

Oh, and she likes lots of fussing over her.

Happy Tuesday, you lovely lot!

Just a little heads up, we have A LOT more wines just in, varying in styles and colours from all over the world! 🌎

We've also topped up on some of our regular best sellers 😊 Including: Soli Pinot Noir/Merlot, Savage Salt River, Melnik 55, Coeur De Raisin

And...drumroll please πŸ₯ .....
My personal fave - Distant Noises Syrah 🍷

Tasting notes:

Such brightness and perfume here! Blueberry fruit, blackberry cordial, blackcurrant fruit gummies, white pepper and baking spice on the nose. The palate is elegant and silken, with the sweet and savoury elements gently sparring for attention. Impeccably balanced, with fresh, lifted acidity. Certainly a Syrah rather than Shiraz, and distinctly cool climate as befits a wine from the Yarra. So tasty!

More Info:

The real beauty of Distant Noises though? It's the price! Tom has set himself the challenge of making premium Mornington Peninsula wine at a price that you rarely see for wines from this region. Why, in this venal old world, would he do that? Because he wants to.Β He's achieved pretty much everything else there is to achieve in wine. He's reached the summit several times over. Distant Noise is his chance to do that rare thing of making a cracking wine that is accessible to many, that gives as many people as possible the pleasure of the wines he makes.

Cheers to that πŸ‘Œ 🍻 and hopefully see you soon x

πŸ·πŸ§€ Wine Tasting Masterclass with Fergus πŸ‰πŸ·

Apologies to all who didn't get a chance to come along to this one... we sold all the tickets before we had a chance to advertise! But please don't worry - we'll be pairing up with the awesome wine buff πŸ’ͺ 😎 Fergus again, very soon! (Keep your eyes peeled πŸ‘ - or DM to join our mailing list - for news on some exciting new collabs 🫦)

For those that attended (or for anyone interested in which of our beautiful wines Fergus selected), swipe to the end - which shows 4 of the 6 opened on the night. All glorious, but we particularly enjoyed tasting a South African red from Lowerland that we hadn't tried as yet... really soft, fruity πŸ’πŸ‡and not at all flabby! πŸ‘ŒπŸ’ͺ


All aboardddddd the Putty train. Just in, here at your local Bottle shop!

We have one case. That's it. It won't hang around!

The Bottle and Jug Dept.

Thank you for visiting the page for the Bottle and Jug Dept. in Worthing. We have created this business to share our love for quality drinks, whether that be real ales or biodynamic wines from all over the globe. Our mission is to bring something new and exciting to the people of Worthing, giving them greater choice when it comes to their favourite tipple.

If you are tired of the usual table plonk or limited craft beer range at your local supermarket then we are the people to speak to. We aim to stock some of the best beers, wines and spirits that we can source, seeking to do something a little different from the norm. Whether you are seeking out the latest craft beer collaboration or are someone looking for that special bottle of wine for an occasion, we aim to please.

The Bottle and Jug Dept. is all about inclusiveness and a desire to share our passion for quality with our customer. It doesn’t matter if you do not know your Burgundy from your Bordeaux or your sour from your saison; we are here to help you choose the right product based on what you like.

Our wines are mainly from low intervention and natural producers who either practice or are certified as organic and/or biodynamic. Naturally produced wines use grapes that have been grown without the use of chemical pesticides and little or no sulfur is added during the wine making process. Many people are sensitive to the chemicals used in commercial wine making without realising, and can have a reaction to them. We believe the wines we sell have a much cleaner and more natural style that accurately reflects the terroir of their region and the natural flavour of the grapes used.
