A few weeks back I had the opportunity to try a new brand of bottled water–16 Water.
Since we have a good water filter, I rarely drink bottled water at home, but it’s something I’ve struggled with when we go out–especially when we are traveling on long trips to visit hubby’s family in Mississippi.
Most of the time, we just order water from whatever restaurant we are eating at along the way, and, because I am used to purified water, I can always taste the chlorine in the water, and I never feel 100 percent comfortable about drinking tap water when I don’t really know how filtered it is!
Even many brands of bottled water are sketchy in my mind because I don’t know how clean the water source really is.
I was excited to try 16 Water because of their unique purification process. 16 Water is a natural water filtered through natural filtration and purification processes.
16 Water is produced on Jeju, a tropical volcanic island off the Southwest coast of the Korean peninsula. The island was formed by volcanic eruptions, which created a series of underground reservoirs below the volcano Halla Mountain.
These reservoirs are continuously renewed by heavy rainfall. The volcanic soil composition of the island also provides a natural filtration system, which removes impurities and gives the water a rich supply of minerals.
16 Water’s name is derived from the fact that it is naturally purified through 16 layers of volcanic rock!
With natural filtration origins come natural minerals, which makes 16 Water a rare source of essential nutrients. I found the taste to be mild–without any trace of the chlorine-like taste that I often detect in tap water!
All-in-all, I feel that 16 Water would be a great brand to use when traveling or on-the-go, and it would also be great for an emergency preparedness kit!
16 Water began in Korea in 1998 and is now the number one brand there. The brand is also distributed in Japan and began mass distribution in the United States in 2014.
16 Water is now available on Amazon.com!
