The Water Sommelier is Singapore's 1st fine water distribution and education company. Its mission is to bring the World's Finest Waters to all Singaporeans. Currently it is the distributor for 3 iconic brands; Harrogate Spring Water, Vichy Catalan and Hildon Natural Mineral Water.
1. Harrogate Spring Water
Harrogate Spring Water is abstracted from an underground aquifer in the heart of the beautiful Harrogate Pinewoods, a protected catchment area famously known as the birthplace of ‘The English Spa’ - home of British bottled water. Naturally filtered deep beneath the ground for 1000 years, Harrogate Spring Water is naturally enriched with minerals to create a refreshing, perfectly-balanced drink. Virtually free of nitrates and nitrites, the water is of exceptional mineral balance and purity.
Every bottle is made from at least 50% locally sourced, post-consumer recycled content (rPET/rGlass) that are 100% recyclable. This unique composition, coupled with its award-winning design inspired by the stunning architecture of Britain's Oldest Spa Town, Harrogate, has ensured the bottles are ‘right-weighted’ - remaining light but strong. The result is one of the greenest bottled waters on the market.

2. Vichy Catalan
Since its discovery in 1881 by Dr. Modest Furest i Roca from its spring in Caldes de Malavella, Vichy Catalan has come a long way in becoming the most iconic and well-loved Sparkling Natural Mineral Water from Spain. Naturally sparkling water with a high mineral content, Vichy Catalan is world-renowned for its taste and health benefits.
Vichy Catalan is a water deeply-embedded in the world of gastronomy. Known for bringing both flavor and personality to countless recipes, it is now an essential part on the tables of restaurants wanting to bring out the best flavours in their savory foods, particularly those that celebrate Spanish cuisine.
Vichy Catalan is also a water synonymous with health benefits. Rich in electrolytes, it is ideal for post-workout hydration. Additionally, it also contains 27 of the 34 essential and trace minerals required by the human body. In particular, Vichy Catalan is rich in Sodium Bicarbonate, which is known to aid in digestion, as well as alleviate both heart burn and acid re-flux symptoms.
