I go on about it a lot, but I am a student. This means that is essential I remain hydrated so that I can work at a constant, high quality rate, especially as my diet isn't necessarily outstandingly health (especially because of money complaints). My dad often gets Buxton Still Mineral Water in huge packs of at least 24 for free. The price of this on Amazon, however, is about £5.99 which is a great deal and you should really check it out if you enjoy this drink.
The bottle is 500ml and comes in a clear plastic bottle. The cap if blue continuing a simplistic colour scheme established on the label, which is a simplistic picture of a mountain as the water is said to come from "Deep in ancient limestone, in the heart of the Peak District". The bottle is a simple twist off top, and so because the cap is broken after opening, t suggests that you consume within one day after having opened.
The taste, in my opinion, is unbeatable. I hate when 'still' water has a slightly sweet taste, which I find especially with brands like Evian, and so like that this product is exactly what it says it is. 500ml is a little on the small side for someone who drinks water regularly and in large quantities, so it is definitely worth looking into buying a pack, or perhaps a 1 litre bottle if you enjoy the water enough. In their range, there are 75cl and 1l bottles with sports caps, which are great for use when exercising, especially if you're out running or out at the gym. Another interesting part of the range is a smaller sized kids bottle with a sports cap also, which is great for keeping your kids healthy, especially if you just pop one of them in their lunch box.
You can buy a 500ml bottle in most corner shops for usually a little under a pound. Normally this is a decent price, especially as fizzy drinks are now priced over £1 and even as much as £2 in some cases. But, considering you can buy a 24 pack on Amazon for so little, the price does seem a little much comparatively. However, this is still a decent price and for such an excellent product to boot.
One thing worth noting, although for most people this is hardly recognisable: I tend to leave drinks in my bedroom on my bedside table in case I feel thirsty late at night or if I wake up during the night. This means that if I'm particularly lazy I might leave a drink opened in my bedroom for a few days. This is definitely not recommended, especially with this product, as once you open it again there is a foul smell as the plastic presumably breaks down in the water, and it tastes awful. Of course this is easily avoidable, but I still thought I should mention it in case. Always follow the recommendations and instructions on the bottle.
This is definitely a drink I would recommend as it tastes great, is pretty cheap and is great for keeping your mind clear and your body healthy.
