Pure and Simple
NZ mineral water Antipodes was reviewed by Michael Mascha, author of Fine Waters: A Connoisseurs Guide to the World’s Most Distinctive Bottled Waters, in the LA Times. “The soft, light bubbles (it’s artificially carbonated) and low mineral content contrast well with food without overpowering it,” he writes, recommending readers pair it with Chinese dishes such as sweet and sour pork. Antipodes is an Auckland-based company that exports to a growing number of countries, from Taiwan to the Maldives. Last year, Antipodes was judged the world’s best sparkling water at the prestigious Berkeley Springs Winter Festival of Waters in California.
