A Family of Water Drinkers

The V Family are a family of water drinkers, we go through a lot of bottles of the clear stuff in our house (if you're a regular reader you might remember my Water Stash post).

We've never had anything as fancy as AQUA Carpatica though and we do love fancy things so when the opportunity arose to try some, I simply couldn't resist! 

Before I tell you how we got on, let me give you some information about AQUA Carpatica:

AQUA Carpatica comes deep from the Carpathian Mountains, an ancient land where time seems to stand still, leaving only the pristine beauty of nature and history. It is the last wild forest of Europe and with no agriculture or industrial activity in the surrounding areas, it’s like going back to a time before chemicals, fertilizers, CFCs and other contaminants even existed.

With AQUA Carpatica, purity and taste go hand in hand. Millions of years of volcanic activity have filtered impurities at the source, endowing our water with its unrivaled flavor

So what did we think?

The first thing I noticed when I saw the AQUA Carpatica bottles was the gorgeous packaging - the plastic and glass bottles come in a range of sizes to suit all needs and look pretty special. I've mentioned before that recycling is important to our family but these bottles were so lovely, I actually felt reluctant to dispose of them!

AQUA Carpatica's health benefits are something that makes it stand out over other mineral water, check out the website to find out more about how this water can aid a healthy lifestyle. 

I must admit that I felt good about drinking it and even slightly energised although I sometimes wonder if these things can be 'all in my mind' i.e. if I think it's a healthy product, I'll feel healthy.

Taste-wise I can't say the difference was massively noticeable, it was quite subtle but it did have an edge to it. The word that was on the V Family's lips after tasting the water was "pure", it seemed to have a fresh quality to it. There was also no unpleasant aftertaste with either type of water from this brand and that's a big bonus in my eyes.

The sparkling water was by far the best of it's type that I've tasted. I've never been a huge fan of sparkling water because those I had tasted were quite sharp/bitter and left me with a 'bulldog chewing a wasp' expression - not pretty! 

AQUA Carpatica's version, however, was not bad at all, it tasted quite smooth (no bulldog expressions here) and was in fact rather pleasant to drink. 

I don't think it'll ever be my favourite type of water but at least I've found a brand that is drinkable and healthy.

AQUA Carpatica has fit in with our family life beautifully - I took a bottle with me when I went on the school run...
