According to Michael Mascha who created FineWaters in 2002 and was one of the founders of the Fine Water Society in 2008, and the Fine Water Academy in 2018: “Not all bottled water is created equal but how do you differentiate natural, untreated waters from the thousands of processed waters?”.
FineWaters had published an illustrated guide which reveals the epicurean pleasures of water and shows you how to select bottled waters that will tempt your palate. The book reviews 100 of the world’s most distinct bottled water brands, their sources, composition, flavours, and historical backgrounds, along with expert analysis and full-colour photos throughout.
Says Michael Mascha (right): “Any culinary experience is enhanced by fine bottled water. Let FineWaters show you how. Paired with the right food, served in the proper stemware, and enjoyed at the right temperature, bottled water can be an epicurean delight. But many bottled water drinkers are exposed to only a few major brands, and there has never been a guide for connoisseurs until now.”
In this book, water sommelier Michael Mascha elevates bottled water to its rightful place of prominence on our tables. Inside, you will find reviews and tasting notes for the world’s most distinctive naturally-occurring bottled waters, as well as a comprehensive guide to choosing, tasting, and serving bottled water.
From pairing water with food to selecting the perfect glassware, Mascha guides you through the etiquette necessary to fully appreciate water’s complex flavors. FineWaters opens new culinary vistas and puts any water drinker on the cutting edge of this new trend.
