About this project
Duothirst is a new versatile way to stay hydrated like never before. The innovative design allows you to maintain convenience whilst having access to 2 drinks at the same time.
We all need to stay hydrated throughout the day and Duothirst allows you to carry any two drinks you desire, transforming the way you drink and stay hydrated forever.
This makes Duothirst suitable for many different applications; for the busy on the go individual trying to stay well hydrated without compromise OR the individual who is trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle making Duothirst the ultimate training necessity (water when you want it energy when you need it!) OR someone who just wants a bottle that gives them choice every time they use it and love having more than one drink throughout their day... the applications for Duothirst are many.

For the past 2-3 years we have been developing a solution to a common problem experienced by many people whilst on the go, exercising or just trying to consume more than one drink throughout the day; the need to carry multiple bottles with different liquids such as water, energy drinks, supplements, fruit juices and more to both replenish and rehydrate. Having to carry several bottles around with you is inconvenient and can become a continuous hassle.
We were tired of having to put up with this and wanted something that presented an element of convenience to our workouts and daily lives.
Duothirst is the solution to this problem.
The Best Bottle Ever?
We designed Duothirst to be more than just a water bottle. We wanted it to seamlessly fit into your lifestyle and give you the flexibility and choice of what you want to drink and when you want to drink it.
Convenience is one of the core principles we designed Duothirst around. Its elegant design gives you practicality, flexibility and choice every time you use it. We truly believe that Duothirst delivers this like no other bottle out there.
We wanted the user to experience a new versatile way to stay hydrated like never before.
Duothirst is comprised of 3 main components, the lid, the identical bottle halves and the base component that holds them together. The great thing about Duothirst, and one of the bottles main features is the lid mechanism. We spent a long time designing and engineering this so that it was possible to select either of the two bottle halves through just one mouthpiece.
But we didn't stop there; we also designed the lid mechanism so that it could access both of the bottle halves at the same time. This means that Duothirst can be used like any conventional bottle to drink just one liquid, but also offer the choice of two drinks or a mixture of two drinks.
Duothirst holds a total capacity of 800ml (27 US fluid oz) we believe this is the perfect amount to ensure that Duothirst is not too bulky or heavy. Each bottle half therefore holds 400ml (13.5 US fluid oz).
Duothirst is a UK designed product and will also be manufactured and assembled in the UK to ensure that quality won't be compromised and that a premium end product will be produced.
Bringing an element of convenience to everybody's workout & daily life
Duothirst allows you to stay hydrated whilst maintaining convenience. No longer do you have to carry several bottles around with you for your different drinks. Carry them both in your elegantly designed sleek Duothirst bottle.
Access either compartment or both at the same time through just one mouthpiece
One of our first design requirements for Duothirst was to ensure that the bottle had only one mouthpiece to access either of the bottle halves. We have managed this through our uniquely designed lid mechanism. We spent a long time designing and engineering the mechanism and the great thing is it's so simple to use.
Change between drinks in seconds
We wanted to ensure that changing between drinks was effortless thus enhancing the user experience. It's super easy to change between drinks, all you have to do is twist the top part of the lid and select which drink you want.
Access two drinks from a single bike bottle holder - perfect for cyclists
The design of Duothirst allows it to fit into all regular bike bottle holders. This then gives you the ability to access two drinks from the same bottle rack.
We wanted to make sure that changing between drinks whilst cycling was still possible. To allow this we have designed the top of the lid so that you can bite down on the ridge and then turn the bottle with one hand to select which position you want.
Have 1, 2, or a mixture of both drinks
One of the great things the lid mechanism allows you to do is access either bottle half or both at the same time.
If you choose to have two drinks in your bottle then you can select either of those two drinks or you can choose to have a mixture of the two drinks. If you choose to only have one drink in both bottle halves then Duothirst will act like any other bottle out there letting you drink just one liquid simply turn it to the position that accesses both bottle halves.
So wether you want to have one, two, or a mixture of both drinks Duothirst lets you decide.
Lightweight, Durable and Reusable
We have designed Duothirst so that it is a lightweight and durable product. Duothirst is also reusable and will help you to break the habit of using disposable plastic bottles which just end up being disposed of in landfill sites.
Duothirst is a BPA (Bisphenol A) free bottle. We made sure this was the case from the very beginning to protect the health of the end user. What this basically means is that the materials and plastics Duothirst is made out of do not contain any of the harmful BPA chemicals that can be found in other types of plastics.
When designing Duothirst we had to ensure the product was leakproof. All of the Duothirst bottles will be 100% tested to ensure they are leakproof. How can we expect you to use such an amazing product if it can't function properly!
Duothirst is easy to clean and it is dishwasher safe also. The lid has been designed so that it can be taken apart making it easier to clean and putting it back together once you're done is simple.
Duothirst is a joy to hold due to the ergonomic shape and size of the bottle. It fits great in your hand and can easily be held at any point.
Using Duothirst couldn't be easier.
Simply fill the bottle halves with the drinks of your choice, then twist the top part of the lid to click into one of four possible positions. The first and third positions select the individual bottle halves, whilst the second and fourth positions allow access to both bottle halves at the same time.
So whether you want to have one, two, or a mixture of both drinks Duothirst lets you decide.
You can choose the Duothirst that is perfect for your taste and style.

A: Duothirst holds a total capacity of 800ml (27 US fluid oz) we believe this is the perfect amount to ensure that Duothirst is not too bulky or heavy. Each bottle half therefore holds 400ml (13.5 US fluid oz).
Q: How do I use my Duothirst Bottle?
A: This is fully explained in the "How Does Duothirst Work?" section of this page. Simply twist the top part of the lid to click into one of four positions. There are two positions allowing access to either bottle half, then two other positions allowing access to both bottle halves at the same time. This means you can access either side of the bottle as well as being able to access both at the same time. So whether you want to have one, two, or mixture of both drinks Duothirst lets you decide.
Q: Is Duothirst patented?
A: Yes, Duothirst is a patent pending product.

Q: What is BPA?
A: BPA (bisphenol A) is an industrial chemical used in plastic water bottles and many other plastic products. It has been used since the 1960’s to make certain plastics and resins. BPA has been found to cause your oestrogen levels to rise regardless of whether you are a male or female. Often plastic products which contain BPA have been found to leach when exposed to certain stresses, things like being exposed to temperatures as low as 15°C can cause this leaching to happen. Being exposed to this chemical and consuming it can lead to adverse health effects it has been associated with health problems such as; altered growth rates, early puberty in girls, reduced sperm count in males, altered functions in reproductive organs in both sexes, altered behaviour, obesity and higher rates of some cancers. Growing fears about the long term effects BPA plastics can have has prompted the EU, United States and Canada into banning the use of BPA in baby bottles.
Q: Is Duothirst dishwasher safe?
A: Yes, all parts of the Duothirst bottle are dishwasher safe. We recommend you clean your Duothirst using the dishwasher or by hand using some warm and soapy water.
Q: Is Duothirst available in a range of colours?
A: Yes, there is a selection of colours you can choose from allowing you to choose the Duothirst that is perfect for your taste and style.
