Luxury Iceberg Water by Harrods Comes from a Real Glacier to Your Home
You can now buy luxury Iceberg water by Harrods for just $60! From a real glacier! How cool is that?
I’m sure not many of you have thought about drinking water from a glacier, even though when you were a kid you used to eat the snow.
Now it is possible to even buy a bottle of water that came from a glacier, all because of luxury London retailer Harrods.
The company will start selling the “limited edition” Svalbarði brand bottles of water on February 15th.
The idea came from Jamal Qureshi, a Wall Streeter who visited a remote Norwegian island in the Svalbard archipelago in 2013. When he came back, he brought the ultimate souvenir for his wife, a bottle of melted iceberg water.
It is a good thing if you think about how the Global Warming is affecting the glaciers, right?
Jamal now harvests the icebergs in Kongsfjorden, a place that is about 621 miles from the North Pole.
For 13,000 bottles of water he needs like 15 tons of ice. And once the ice is collected form two expeditions a year, by his crew it will be melted, according to Forbes.
It is bottled by hand to capture the water in its purest form. In order to retain the water’s natural composition and premium taste, no chemistry-altering filters are used, only micron filters and UV light to adhere to international standards.
According to Svalbarði’s website, the water is almost entirely mineral free “with the pH of fresh snow” and “an exceptionally light mouth-feel.”
The product page claims, “The fine water is a sophisticated alternative to alcohol, and enriches culinary experiences.
“The water, that has traveled from the glacier to glass, is encased in highest quality extra flint glass.”
“The wooden cap in the color of arctic driftwood is sourced from sustainable forests.”
All bottles have a seal which feature a Bubble Tag 3d chaosmetric technology to ensure your bottle is genuine and not tampered with.
A 750 ml bottle with gift tube is available for $75.
