Facts that you always wanted
to know about water

Ten of the world's most expensive waters 🌍

In German supermarkets, mineral water is available in 1.5-liter PET bottles for as little as €0.29. In other countries, such as the USA, you will pay at least $1.50 per bottle for spring water. But it can be even more expensive, as I will show in this article. For example, there are waters that cost significantly more in the luxury segment because of their special mineral composition or their special bottle design. And then there are waters that are released in limited editions and sold at high prices. I can already tell you that they go into the 5-figure range.

I've been scouring some water stores for you over the past few days to find out which are the most expensive waters in the world right now. And here is the result:

No. 10: Crystal Source - This water comes from the USA. In addition to the beauty mineral silica, it contains beautiful silica crystals that float in the bottle and become visible when exposed to light.

No. 9: ROI - ROI was founded in 1647 in Rogaška Slatina, Slovenia. With 1.100 mg per liter, it is the most magnesium-rich mineral water in the world.

No. 8: Minus 181 - This water comes from Germany and is bottled in a small factory directly above the spring.

No. 7: O'SUISSE is a Swiss Alpine spring water that comes from high altitude areas where it is naturally purified and enriched with minerals over many years.

No. 6: APSU - An absolutely pure water from Patagonia with very low mineral content, bottled in very limited quantities.

No. 5: NEVAS WATER Aporro comes from two natural springs. This makes it the first cuvée in the water segment. The bottle is a limited edition in collaboration with the jeweler Aporro.

No. 4: Evian Jean Paul Gaultier - Evian is probably a name everyone knows. In this case, it's a limited edition from designer Jean Paul Gaultier, who collaborated with the French spring in 2009.

No. 3: Bling H20 Clear Blue - The company comes from the USA and is known for its fancy bottle designs. This is also a limited edition, decorated with original Swarovski crystals.

No. 2: FILLICO Black King - This water comes from Japan and is produced in a limited edition. The bottles are made of satin glass with gold inlay. On the outside the bottles are decorated with the famous Swarovski crystals.

No. 1: Svalbardi - Svalbardi is ice water from the fjords around Svalbard, 1000 kilometers from the North Pole. The company recently announced on their website that the water is no longer available.

In the end, everyone has to decide if it is worth paying so much for a natural water. I guess some people do.

About Timo Bausch

My fascination with mineral waters began in 2016 during my training as a Water Sommelier. Since then, I have been exploring the characteristics and diversity of water. In addition to pairing water with food, wine, coffee and other beverages, I offer the creation of water menus for restaurants and hotels. Furthermore, it is also important to me to draw attention to the importance of drinking water.
