Like with wine, there is an etiquette about how to serve water.
Beyond the pure flavor considerations, you should consider intangible qualities like presentation and a water's story when choosing your bottled water. The bottle plays an essential role in the overall perception of the water.
To end the sorry state of the "glass culture" surrounding premium bottled water, FineWaters has designed an exclusive series of water glasses produced by Rogaška and aimed at the new and emerging trend of enjoying water —like wine — in an epicurean context.
For centuries, humans have been drinking water at the natural temperature of its source or storage facility. Only recently have we begun manipulating water's temperature. The temperature of most underground cellars where wine is traditionally stored is about 55 degrees Fahrenheit (13°C).
In about 100 BCE, Syrians invented the glass bottle by blowing molten glass through a tube. Until mass production became possible, glass bottles were expensive, so Apollinaris and other waters were sold in earthen jars.
