I guess it's just a matter of personal preference. Personally, when I race, I like to take my bottles from the bottom, which means the person is holding it from the top. Actually, this is really the only way I've seen it done.
easy rider is right with the fact that you need to hold the bottle at shoulder-level for the rider. I've seen people holding it entirely too low for the rider, resulting in a dropped bottle. Another good tip is to lightly jog in the direction the rider is going. This way, you don't get that slamming effect. It's a smoother transition.
