Talking about tap water

Hello and good afternoon,

I think it's time to introduce the FINE LIQUIDS community.

The community was founded on March 14th of this year and thus more or less gave in to the experience from the pandemic to bring the virtual meetings, which were made possible in an uncomplicated manner by Zoom, Teams and so on, into the public space.

Milin and I had already gained our first experience with this in advance. The local water tastings could no longer take place in person due to local corona requirements, which meant that they had shifted to the virtual room. At first it seemed completely impossible, but then we saw how straightforward it is.

So we met for the first time on World Water Day across all borders for the world's first virtual, cross-border watertasting live on The recording of the first broadcast can be found here on our YOUTUBE CHANNEL

Due to the fact that evian is probably the best-known and most successful branded water of all, we have decided to start with this brand, even if it is seen as controversial for one or the other - that fits.

The permanent members of the FINE LIQUIDS Community:

Pat Eckert, owner of FINE LIQUIDS and water lover, near Heidelberg, Germany

Milin Patel, FINE LIQUIDS UK, water technologist, consultant and water sommelier in London, UK

Ruriko Suzuki, teacher and Japan's premier water sommelier in Tokyo, Japan

Justin Takashi Glascock, musician and water sommelier in Los Angeles, USA

Previous guests in our talks have included:

Jure Pirc from Cryptowater, Slovenia

Aquaporin company, Denmark

Marco Gaij from Bled Water Festival, Slovenia

Candice van Rensburg, South Africa's first water sommelier, South Africa

Duncan McFie of Cloud Juice, Tasmania

Benoit Szymanski from La Sasse, France

Brands discussed so far have also been Vichy Catalan and Icelandic Glacial. The live stream almost always takes place on the last weekend of the month, but definitely once a month.

We set the main topic about a month in advance, like the topic of tap water this month (see video below). Next time it should be a brand again.

The topics are only discussed loosely beforehand, so that the actual meeting runs quite freely. Milin and Pat usually moderate fluently in English while Justin, as the representative of the states, also has the job of translator to Japan, so we also include Ruriko here. So we illuminate our topics in at least two languages ​​and that is quite unique.

If you want to stay up to date, you should urgently follow us on Instagram or Facebook, where the dates will be announced in good time.
