What inspired you to become a Water Sommelier?

Rescue of the brownfield "Vratislavická kyselka" and revival of the 160-year-old brand of the best mineral water


What is your superpower?

Endurance


Can you share a memorable experience you've had as a Water Sommelier?

It's a strange and quite untransferable feeling when you order your own mineral water in a restaurant incognito.


Still or Sparkling?

Sparkling


Low or high TDS?

High TDS


Salty or sweet?

Sweet


What is your favorite water and why?

Can I say something other than Vratislavická kyselka? (and by the way, it's true)


Please finish the sentence: Water for me is...

bread. Daily bread.


What do you believe is the future of the Water Sommelier profession?

First of all, water sommelier is not a profession, it's a calling. And second, in a hundred years, we'll all be water sommeliers.


How do you think valuing water contributes to a more sustainable future?

I answered in the previous question 🙂


What else would you like to share with the community?

I will personally guide any water sommelier with a Doemens certificate through the Vratislavická kyselka factory.


Jan, thank you for the interview!


Best regards

Timo Bausch
