Tasting Notes

I'm so excited that Antipodes water is now finally available here in the USA. This incredibly pure and cleansing mineral water has gotten me through many a long tasting on my travels in New Zealand. It is hands down the best bottled water I have come across anywhere on earth - Ryan Woodhouse (K&L's NZ Wine Buyer) Antipodes water is sourced from an aquifer more than 1000 feet below the ground in the Bay of Plenty, on the east coast of New Zealand's north island. The groundwater of the aquifer is of very high quality. It has been recognized as the deepest, highest quality groundwater in New Zealand. The water spends 50 years underground and comes to the surface under its own pressure. It is filtered through a substrata of ignimbrite rock before it comes to the surface and is then micro-filtered again in the plant. It is bottled without any chemical interference. The plant operates to the highest international quality standards ISO 9002 and 22000. Antipodes was the first premium water company to become certified Carbon Neutral. The plant is solar powered, the glass is recycled and the company has replanted expansive native trees at the bottling site. Carbonation is added using a specific full saturation process to give a very fine and persistent fizz.

    This is good stuff...crisp, great subtle and small bubbles, that finishes with a pure and precise finish. I'll have another round, please!

    This is a fine vintage of Antipodes, the king of sparkling waters and the sparkling water of kings! In all seriousness, while we have had fun at New Zealand wine (and water) buyer Ryan Woodhouse's expense, I have to admit that this is great stuff. Pure, balanced, soft carbonation and well balanced water - I can't stop drinking the stuff. Added bonus: Antipodes is a certified carbon neutral business.

    We are often asked here at K&L if we have any bottled water to sell and the answer is almost always a sad and thirsty no. Today that is not the case! After reading Ryan Woodhouse's review which states Antipodes water "is hands down the best bottled water I have come across anywhere on earth" I certainly had to try it. I love sparkling water so naturally I tried the bubbles first. It is indeed excellent. It has a bright, clean, and refreshing bead with no offensive flavorings. Just beautifully clean, clear water. I have a long way to travel before I second the claim of the very best in the world, but as of yet, I have nothing to offer to the contrary.
