Last week, we did a post on pairing premium fine bottled water with food – an experience termed by some diners as “epicurean.” Premium bottled water is made for rare consumption and is likely more expensive than your average bottle of Dasani or Evian. Just how expensive, you ask?
Well, that depends on the water. The suggested retail value of Fillico Jewelry Water is $150 per set of two bottles. This is not just any bottled water, however. I would venture to say it goes beyond most premium bottled waters in several ways. Each bottle is decorated with Swarovski crystals and has a shiny (king or queen) crown cap. The bottles and caps are hand made piece by piece, so production is limited to no more than 5,000 bottles per month.
Are you impressed yet? It doesn’t end there…
The crystals aren’t the only thing you’re paying for (though they probably make up a large part of the reason for price). The water inside the bottles is natural spring water from Kobe, Japan – a location famous for the Japanese wine, SAKE. In fact, Fillico shares the same source with SAKE winery. (While we’re on the subject of pairing premium bottled water with food, perhaps this water would pair well with Kobe beef.) Fillico recommends the water for special occasions such as anniversary dinners or wedding receptions. Or if your teen has expensive taste, you may want to invest in the Hello Kitty collection. This special edition Fillico water comes in five different bottles, each with its own set of colored crystals which represent a different theme: yellow (heartful), pink (cute), lavender (sweet), green (wish), and red (friendship).
