Most brands of alpine spring water simply collect their water from a spring source and bottle it without any further processing. Other brands only claim to be alpine spring water, but in reality they only use municipal tap water inside a well-designed bottle. Smartwater wanted to take a different tact when they first start producing their brilliantly delicious water, and they have succeeded in that goal. Their starting product is the same pure alpine spring water than many other brands end with, and the water undergoes a tremendous amount of tinkering in order to make it ideal for human consumption. Smartwater is filtered using powerful evaporation methods, and the result is water that has a purity so high it can not be matched by other brands. The water is then imbibed with minerals in order to balance the pH and bring some alkalinity to the product. The result is smooth, crisp, and tasty water.
