Mixology Classic Soda Syphon 

Mixology Classic Soda Syphon 

If you’re low on countertop space, the Classic Soda Syphon, running on small CO2 cartridges, might be a good choice. Easily stored in a cupboard, it makes a litre of sparkling water at a time, which you can then siphon directly into your glass.

Aarke Carbonator 3 

Aarke Carbonator 3 

This is the thoroughbred of carbonators. It’s beautifully designed, with a stainless steel casing that comes in a range of finishes, including copper, and it’s sold with a relatively attractive PET bottle.

SodaStream Spirit 

SodaStream Spirit 

SodaStream was founded in 1908, but only became a household name in the 1980s. The Spirit, its most recent product, looks less high-spec and sleek than some of its rivals, but its design is a proven success.
