Water is indeed everywhere—especially bottled water. High end restaurants now have “water lists” in addition to wine lists, water bars are opening up around the globe, and gourmet markets are selling dozens of different varieties of bottled waters. Consumers are beginning to recognize that bottled water, like wine, has its unique identity that is defined by its origin – whether springs, wells or glaciers. What’s unfortunate is that bottled water drinkers are only exposed to a few of the major brands, and until now, there’s never been a guide for connoisseurs. Fine Waters will be just such a guide, with information on the connoisseurship of bottled waters, from learning the “FineWaters Balance”—the sophisticated scale to define the differences between various bottled waters – to matching water and food, selecting appropriate stemware, and even bottled water etiquette. This book provides reviews of 100 of the world’s best-loved bottled water brands.
