When you hear this even the price of exclusive Evian water will be a paltry. We really used to see everything, but exclusive water menu? The Merchant Hotel in Belfast, Northern Ireland has launched first dedicated water menu with the most expensive bottle costing £26.45 ($40.57). Water menu includes a description of the water and its mineral content guiding guests through the options available. The handpicked selection has been curated to include some of the world’s purest waters, with bottles originating from 10 countries including Italy, Iceland, Finland, the Faroe Islands and Fiji.
The five-star hotel has also revealed plans to employ ‘water butlers’ to assist you in making an informed choice; the choice of which water pairs better with your favorite dish.
This idea of an expert in water has provoked much debate.
Alex Goldberg wrote on Twitter how a ‘water sommelier’ made him angry, while Adam Elliott Segal described it as ‘the stupidest job in the world.’ What do you think?
