KRYSTAL flows from the pristine Lesser Khingan Mountains on the Chinese-Siberian frontier into the untouched underground Beian aquifer, where it is bottled at source. It is abundant in minerals and trace elements including sodium bicarbonate, metasilicic acid, calcium and silica.
Completely concealed from human touch, this isolated water source was discovered by chance. Scientific examinations unveiled a water source with an alkaline level of pH 8 to 8.8, and an unprecedented mineral composition, commonly known for their health enhancing qualities.
With our relentless dedication to quality, KRYSTAL Nature’s Alkaline Water is brought to you by international experts using the latest state-of-the-art extraction and bottling processes to ensure that we retain not only the composition of this natural wonder, but also its distinctively rich and smooth taste.
The luxuriousness of this fine alkaline waters is presented in iconic glass and recyclable PET bottles, designed for a luxury lifestyle.


Whole roasted pigeons sourced from Shek-Ki, a town in Guandong are a delicacy for Cantonese Cooks and among the best things I have ever eaten. A Medium Minerality still water with a silky minerality like KRYSTAL would be my choice and it was available at this Hong Kong restaurant.



Plated meals are usually the standard for formal dinners and allow a precise #finewaterspairings with every course. It is becoming more difficult with family style service, serving all food at pretty much the same time or as it comes out of the kitchen as it is custom in China. Like in this instance of a series of dishes from a western province of China I would prefer a Medium Minerality water with lots of bicarbonates like Krystal from Heilongjiang to cover the whole epicurean experience.
