The sound of water.

We associate the sounds made by water with a bandwidth of emotions. The soothing babble of a brook, the thrilling rush of a river, or the exciting pounding of ocean waves. Rain drops splashing may even give us feelings of melancholy. But when the clear, cool liquid exits the neck of the bottle and hits the inside of a glass, we are only filled with delightful anticipation of imminent refreshment.

The state of water.

Water is a substance that can have various physical properties. It can appear in a gaseous, liquid, or solid state. Scientists say that water probably came to earth in its solid state – ice: arriving four billion years ago, as a precious cargo trapped inside comets.

Water Words 2.0.

Talking about water has changed over time. It used to be sufficient to say "clear and wet". Today, we differentiate and speak about the quality of water, its taste and our drinking experience. For example, in regard to origin (geographic location), mouthfeel (texture), orientation (based on the water's pH - "potential hydrogen" measure of alkalinity or acidity), and virginality (water purity).

Treating water just like wine.

Ask any water sommelier. Many of the qualities attributed to fine wine are also considered when describing bottled water. From the terroir – the mineralization of the earth that it passes through while naturally filtering, through to pairing: matching a selected beverage with a particular food according to texture or mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is determined by the water’s level of carbonisation, designated from “quiet” to “loud” as Still, Effervescent, Medium, Classic, and Bold.
