To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm not sure whether to review the water or the bottle. Does anybody actually buy it for the water? Aren't we all here for the bottle?
Anyway, we did a blind taste test on the water. Identical glasses, identical temperature, label underneath, shuffled. Voss vs London tap water through a Brita filter jug. My partner couldn't taste the difference. I thought the Voss had a more mineral character and I preferred it, but not enough to justify the cost.
The bottle, on the other hand, is just what I needed to make cold brew coffee. It lies flat in the fridge in the bottle rack, taking up minimal space but, crucially, ensuring maximal surface contact between coffee and water. I would have liked it to have a wider mouth for easy cleaning, but my bottle brush will cope. The glass is thick and substantial and the plastic screw cap looks like it should put up with a lot of usage. The text on the bottle is printed onto the glass, not on a clear patch sticker. Classy! If it's the bottle that you want, it's money well spent.
I decided to keep my liquids in glass and avoid plastic. This bottle is fit for purpose. I would prepare my own juices and pouring inside to drink throughout the day. However, trying to keep it clean without a dishwasher is mission impossible. Also, I managed to buy another two bottles for half the price in Tesco.
Honestly only bought this for the bottle. Water was nice (as nice as water ever is). Bottle is heavy but strong. Even though it is glass I don't think it would break easily. Can get cheaper in some supermarkets.
The water was without a doubt the best I've ever tasted but the difference is only marginal. The bottle, on the other hand, is fantastic. It holds a huge 800ml, looks classy and is much more enjoyable to drink from than a plastic alternative.
okay so this was a little gift for someone who loves wasting money, who pays this much for water?? but the delivery was super quick and i got bubble wrap out of it- and there was some chocolates in the box. winning
