On planet earth, 884 million people live without regular access to clean water. That’s one end of the spectrum. On the other end, luxury water manufacturers put out single bottles that cost thousands or tens of thousands of dollars, the cleanest, purest, most luxurious water that money can buy, all from the same planet earth.

If you’re on the high end of the spectrum and have the passion for decadent cleanliness (and the cash) to buy the world’s most expensive water, look no further than these eight magnificent bottles.

    Water by Svalbarði is sourced from the Svalbard Islands in the Arctic of Norway. They gather it in the form of ice from icebergs, using the M/S Ulla Rinman to get a crew out there to the icy fjords and collect the water.

    A single 750ml bottle of this water sells for 89.95 pounds or about $123. The bottles are made from flint glass and arctic driftwood. Only 1000 km from the North Pole, Svalbarði collects the water that it hopes will deliver the fresh taste of snow to its luxury patrons.

    Springs in the Rhineland in Germany, what the company NEVAS calls its “artesian wells,” source their high-priced water.

    The ancient free-flowing springs of the Palomar Mountain in Southern California source the water for Bling H2O’s luxury collection. The spring Is nowhere near the hustle and bustle (and smog) of San Diego and takes advantage of the pristine airstream skipping off the Pacific Ocean to provide a drink of water that is literally hundreds of years in the making. It can take up to 125 years of flowing and filtering before the water makes it up to the spring source.

    The water is naturally alkalized, giving it an incredible flavor (or an incredible LACK of flavor). Stainless steel water tankers take the water to Bling’s facilities where it is bottled. The Ten Thousand is their most expensive bottle, bejeweled with over 10,000 Swarovski crystals, which can be color customized on request.

    The most expensive water is the Acqua Di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani Mineral Water. It’s a mouthful to say and $99,000 off the shelf. It’s by far the most expensive water out there when you consider that it’s only a single 750 ml bottle, sourced from crystal clear waters in Fiji, France, and glaciers in Iceland. The bottle is sparkling, made from 5mg of 24-karat gold. You may think the bottle’s construction is purely for luxury, but it actually improves the water by adding to its alkalinity.

    What this means is that the water in this bottle is more able to neutralize acids and maintain a stable pH, which produces a clearer and better taste.

    Did you know?

    The bottle is named after the Italian-Jewish painter/sculptor, Amedeo Modigliani. His modernist portraits are known for their uniquely elongated faces and necks. You may recognize another tribute to him in the living painting monster from 2017’s IT remake.


The Takeaway

Not everyone can enjoy the most expensive water on earth. For up to $100,000, wealthy drinkers can experience the cleanest, brightest, most jewel-bedecked water anywhere. Of all the luxury items we’ve covered, this may be the greatest luxury of all – turning a simple necessity like water into a decadent experience fit for royalty. Someday, if you’re lucky, you may get to taste what happens when water itself becomes an indulgence.
