We love tap water. That much should probably be clear by now. But we’ve just discovered a whole new passion.

It hasn’t overtaken our passion for tap (nothing ever will) and of course, it has a higher price tag than it’s tap equivalent but we like the rise in local, all-conserving, plastic-bottle-free water.
