Will Self ponders the origins of our insatiable thirst for bottled waters.
How did mineral water become such a valuable commodity and is it a luxury the world can no longer afford?
Will’s a confirmed fan of mineral water – yet he’s puzzled by its enduring appeal when H2O flows freely from the tap.
Over five episodes, he investigates the history of five different mineral waters and the spa towns from which they spring. He’s joined by ‘water sommelier’ Martin Riese who believes that mineral water should be regarded as a connoisseur product, just like wine. Riese serves 20 varieties of mineral water in his boutique hotel in Los Angeles.
