While most premium bottled waters sold in the United States are imported from around the world (France, Italy, Fiji), domestically bottled options are also available. Today I’m tasting a natural spring water sourced from the Beartooth Mountain Range of Wyoming, American Summits Spring Water.
American Summits spring water is naturally enriched with mineral picked up from the granite rocks the water filters through. This brings a pleasant alkaline flavor the water without being too much, just pleasantly flat.
I tried the still and sparkling styles of American Summits and, being a carbonated beverage addict, loved the sparkling. I can easily see using the sparkling as a substitute for club soda or seltzer water in cocktails. Like the still water, the sparkling has a clean, alkaline flavor at first but finishes with a refreshing burst of bubbles at the end.
American Summits is available at several outlets in the Los Angeles Metro area including these locations near the South Bay and West Side:
- L&K Market – 2127 Main St, Santa Monica
- Shoops European Deli – 2400 Main St Ste A1, Santa Monica
