Here in Phinland tap water ranges from drinkable to excellent -- no need for bottled water, but demand for it exists anyhow. Tourists, maybe, cautious or uninformed or both.

Or HGers diluting their product Maybe for some purposes bottled spring water is the best nevertheless.

Maybe, but I tend to drink more water because of those bottles. They also make great fountains.

True that. Swiss tap water or water from fountains in Zurich and elsewhere was very good but still I also bought the bottles, to have with me on bicycle tours for refilling. Valser and Arkina and what else.

And the empty bottles were useful in the baggage as buffers against shocks to the absinthe bottles I bought!

Hm, I never thought of that. Sounds like a good way to get my Tequila home from Mexico.

This is where I get my water.

IPB Image
In the lower right corner is the gathering pool. The spring used to come out the side of the mountain. Old timers gathered it there for years to make their moonshine. The state wanted to build a bigger road through for the logging trucks. By law, unable to block a freshwater spring, they stove a culvert pipe into the feed of the spring and built a thirty foot embankment over top. You can see that watercress grows all around and its the easiest drinking water anywhere. It's tricky to get to, and I usually get about 6 gallons at a time, but it's all I'll use for my absinthe.

Hillbilly, you and I are close, we need to get together.
I suspect we share a root or two.

Kirk, I'm at the door now. If you have a monkey's paw, now is the time to use it.
