"Drink more water!" It's the ubiquitous self-care reminder we often hear from our mothers, from our friends, and from the Instagram self-help gurus we love to follow.
Of course, this piece of advice is not without its merit; water is, after all, a necessary part of every living being on this planet. While some may be quick to scoff at the idea, it's nevertheless true: you can be discerning when it comes to water. This is because, like wine, water comes from various terroirs all over the world—each of which has a unique taste and health benefits. Join us today as we guide you through some of the most expensive water brands in the world—and find out whether or not they're worth your while.
1. Acqua di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani
The Acqua di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani was dubbed the "World's Most Expensive Bottle of Water," recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records. Theirs comes in a 24-carat solid gold bottle and holds 750ml of water sourced from Fijian and French springs, plus it also has some glacial water from Iceland. Not only is it quite an experience, but it also comes in a diamond-encrusted bottle designed by Fernando Altamirano, the same man who's designed the world's most expensive cognac bottle.
Estimated Value: US$6.1 million or around HK$47.3 million for 750ml
