Highland Spring Natural Mineral Water Still
Advantages: tatses refreshing, collected from protected environment
Disadvantages: not free
We drink a fair few bottles of water in our family all year round so it can be pretty expensive - I've tried the cheapest to the most expensive & can say that Highland Spring comes near the top of my list of favourites.
I must admit I don't buy as much as I like these days due to the credit crunch/recession so it's a bit of a treat.
The smart plastic bottle has a sturdy flip-top lid & is quite deep - it makes a satisfying 'click' sound when you close it so there's little danger of it spilling & it costs around £2.20 for 12 x 330ml.
The taste isn't too exciting but it doesn't have the copper-flavour that some waters seem to have, it's fresh and has a very refreshing flavour which doesn't leave an aftertaste in the mouth.
As will have gathered from the name this water is a Product of Scotland & it proudly states on the label that it's 100% natural spring water which is 'naturally filtered through land certified as organic by the soil association & drawn from a protected source'. The label is bright & cheery though not the same as the one in the picture - mine have a purple label with a thistle & tartan on the front.
It's suitable for a low sodium diet, contains 0 calories & contains calcium & magnesium which are good for teeth & bones.
The curved design of the bottle makes is easy to hold and the size means it will fit into a jacket pocket/ bag without being too heavy or bulky. I personally think it's best served straight from the fridge & if you need flavour to your drinks add a little freshly-squeezed orange or lemon juice?
- more expensive than some bottled waters.
- collected from protected environment.
- well-designed & sturdy bottle.
- tastes fresh & clear.
- doesn't leave an aftertaste.
- worth a try especially if you see it on offer.
Summary: lovely spring water from Scotland
