antipodes sparkling spring water comes from New Zealand. In their words, "New Zealand Water, across the board is renowned for its purity. Antipodes is amongst the most pure. Antipodes comes to the surface from a deep aquifer and is bottled at source in Whakatane, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand." Spare, minimal and beautiful of form, these bottles are a great example of 'fancy water' (as I like to call it - is there an official name? snob water?) If you're interested, the whole phenomenon of fancy water is discussed by our friends at brandonblog.
