Disadvantages: No strong taste!
I have recently started a new diet and included in it is the drinking of water instead of fizzy drinks or other juices. I have never really been a fan of water and I have always wondered why there are so many types of bottled water as I think water tastes plain and is the same everywhere.
After two weeks on water I have began to realise that water is different dependant on where it comes from. This water is bottled by Britvic and is bottled at source in Huddersfield. Also from the same source is the brand Pennine Spring also by Britvic yet they taste totally different, which I found most parculiar as they are not only from the same company but comes from the same source too!
I find that Drench is one of the best brands of water I have tried. The taste is more crisp and fresh, I find it tasting very pure and free of chemicals (that you can sometimes taste in tap water).
You can buy Drench in four differerent sizes, they have 2L, 1.5L. 750ml and 500ml. The 750ml version sells for 61p in Tesco and this is the one I buy the most as it has a sports cap on it so is easy to drink whereas the others all have a screw cap which can be annoying taking it off and putting it on if you are drinking from it frequently.
It is a relatively new brand of water and you may remember the adverts where Brain from Thunderbirds dances and then drinks water and dances better, saying the slogan "Brains perform best when they're hydrated" after it. It was a very popular advert at the time and raised the profile of Drench huge amounts.
The bottle that water comes in is nothing special with regards to shape and colour, most bottles of water are pretty standard and you can see through it just like all the others. I think the prices for them are very reasonable and will continue to buy Drench for its fresh, crisp, hydrating taste.
Summary: Great water
