glacial ice is generally filthy.

Just put ice cubes into some liquid nitrogen. You won't find anything colder than that.

There's only one man in all of Alaska licensed to capture glacier ice?  When we took the 26 Glacier Cruise the crew went "ice fishing" and rounded up about 50 lbs of ice out of the water and put it in our drinks.  Yeah, I know it's just frozen water and all water is billions of years old, but it's amazing when you think you're drinking water that was stuck in ice for the past fifteen thousand years.

Billy Bathsalt: I buy the cheapest vodak possible and run it through a Brita filter a couple of times.


Came here to say this.

Alonjar: Scientifically speaking, there is absolutely no difference between "old" and "new" water.  Just use farking distilled water, its the purest you're going to get.


Came here to say this. Pure bullshiat gimmick.

After accounting for the price of the contraption and filters, Smirnoff is barely more.

Just because it's old doesn't mean it's clean...  There's all kinds of crap in glacial ice that I wouldn't want to drink.

THIS
The longer it has been laying around, the more likely it is that something is in it that you don't want to drink.

Yea but freshly distilled water ice doesn't have that blue that the old "pure" iceburgs have.  It tastes better because of the blue. Which makes it pure.  ...And the cheque is in the mail. That bridge, let me sell it to you....

 WOW! The water in my toilet must be REALLY pure then, cause the cleaner makes the water really blue!

The polar ice-caps are NOT melting, they are being harvested.

FTFA: "Harvested glacier ice chunks begin the journey back to Alaska Distillery's plant in Wasilla."

At last something good has come out of Wasilla Alaska.

I don't get how driving to a machine, carrying all that weight, is "helping the environment."

Lance Uppercut: Ed Grubermann: Yep. Ice is ice is ice is ice. Unless your looking for specific impurities it doesn't matter. But why let reason get between magical thinkers and the people willing to take their money?

Oldiron_79: if you are distilling it anyways it doesn't matter, facepalm.

Well a fool and his money are soon parted. This way to see the great egress.

You're both under the assumption that the consumers don't realize it's a load of crap to spend that much for a bottle of water.  They understand fully well that there is no added benefit, health or taste, to drinking that kind of water.  The point is that it's expensive and thus a status symbol.


You give them too much credit. I've met too many magical-thinking cretins who would swear on a stack of Bibles that the source of the water makes a huge difference in taste.

To vodka, that'd be a good trick, to beer, or umm bottled water, the water source can change it dramatically, but it's not about the purity, it's about the impurities. Pure water, filtered, manufactured, reverse osmosed, is pure water. Water from different (usually) ground sources does actually taste different, because of the nature of the environment it was found in and the dissolved minerals from that environment.  Once you distill it, or filter the fark out of it, (take all the impurities (and flavour) out of it) you got actually pure (note the lack of quotes that time NRS) flavourless H2O.

That sounds like a good idea, If I were still in my 20's and mixing my liqour with juice.But seriously, that is a good idea.

Iceberg Vodka has been doing this for years, it's very good for the price.
