For keeping yourself (and your party guests) hydrated all summer long, 10 state-of-the-art drinks dispensers at a range of price points.

What are you planning to put in your dispenser? For recipes, see Gardenista’s post Herbal Essence: Just Add Water.

Above: Julie spotted this white enamel dispenser at Swedish online shop Artilleriet and then was very happy to find a US source: the Enamel Drink Dispenser with wrought-iron stand is $79 from Urban Outfitters. (See Julie’s Design Sleuth post.)

Above: This Handblown Glass Drinks Dispenser with a walnut lid is made in Washington State; it’s $170 at Food52.

Above: CB2’s laboratory-inspired Glass Beverage Dispenser has a cork lid and holds seven quarts; $49.95.

Above: The Rivington Glass and Steel Drink Dispenser has a steel pedestal with a satin nickel finish and a stainless steel spigot (less expensive dispensers often have metal-finished plastic spigots). The Rivington is $343.50 AUD ($265.34 USD) from Dunlin in Australia.

Above: The cork-topped Recycled Glass Drink Dispenser from West Elm is $59. 

Above: The Bubbled Glass Dispenser has a sheesham wood lid and stainless steel spigot; $298 from Anthropologie.

Above: The Typhoon Cliptop Drinks Dispenser is a large embossed glass Kilner jar with a mason-jar-style closure and seal; $50 from Target. 

Above: The Clear Drinks Dispenser has the look of glass but is made of clear acrylic, a good option for a rowdy crowd. It’s £20 ($33 US) from John Lewis in the UK.

Above: The Mason Jar Drink Dispenser is made of molded glass with a metal spout and galvanized metal lid; it’s currently on sale for $55 (down from $69) at Pottery Barn.

Above: In a favorite recent post, Julie rounded up 5 Stainless Steel Italian Water Fustis, including this 10-liter Superfustinox Stainless Steel Water Dispenser. It’s $179.95 from Water Check.
