S'well Drink Bottle

S'well Drink Bottle is the world's most desirable drink bottle. It can be taken into any environment and still look good. It makes an owner proud at the gym, on a corporate desk, in a bag, at sporting sidelines, or at the beach.

They’re the most imitated drink bottle of the decade – but nothing beats the beautiful original.

S'Wells are really hard to get. They're the Armani or Dior of drink bottles. Every season they update their styles so that each design is a limited edition. The new season's styles can be viewed  here

S'well bottles are more than their streamlined milk bottle shape. They're made from stainless steel, and really do keep fluids cold for 24 hours, or hot for 12 hours (ok, give or take an hour...).

Their double walled construction means they don't leave condensation on table tops, and hands feel neither heat nor cold when holding a S'well. Each bottle is unbreakable, re-useable, non-leaching, toxic free, and is comfortable to drink from without dribbling. It takes carbonated drinks, doesn't taste of metal, and the throat is wide enough for iceblocks.

And there’s more : S’well Bottles have a watertight cap - seriously, they will not drip. The coarse thread of the cap also means it takes just a few turns to screw and unscrew.

The S'well company began in a desert. CEO & Founder Sarah Kauss was hiking in Arizona's Sonoran Desert in 2010 (with her mother !) when Sarah became peeved that she had to drink warm water. A later Harvard Business School reunion confirmed her decision to make a better water bottle.

A few years on… and her company make the world's hottest/coolest insulated drink bottles, and gives a 2015 donation of $100,000 to Unicef Clean Water Projects.

S'well Insulated Bottles really do what they're supposed to do. Sarah Kauss happily recognises that the Swell idea may have been to bring back the old Thermos technology, but in a hip and durable form.

Whilst many time honoured flasks (such as Thermos or Stanley) kept things cold or hot, they didn’t always look appropriate with contemporary gym wear, or in a boardroom, or on a corporate desk. Existing bottles that looked appropriate didn’t come in an insulated version.

S’well Bottles are a premium bottle with premium looks for contemporary lives.

And they offer an environmentally sensible solution to all those disposable plastic bottles clogging the planet.

S'WELLS ARE SCARCE. THEY'RE SO POPULAR IN AMERICA THAT AUSTRALIA CAN'T GET ENOUGH. EACH OF THESE DESIGNS IS A LIMITED EDITION.
