How would you like your Cape Karoo Mineral Water?

As the focus on healthy living grows in developed countries, people are increasingly choosing bottled water as the alternative to sugar-rich carbonated drinks and chlorinated, unsavoury tap water.

This increased consumption has resulted in a growing appreciation of quality water. In cultural hubs like Paris, New York and London, gourmets are starting to treat water with some of the discernment they once lavished only on wine.

As a result, premium water brands are coming into their own, and are seen as a source of culinary enjoyment and not just refreshment.
