Mineral Water Composition by Brand
Volvic and Brecon Carreg are the winners.

This one’s more informative than beautiful.

Five aspects determine the taste of water (http://www.finewaters.com/)

  • pH (plotted on x axis)
  • Nitrate content (all were acceptably low, so I omitted this data from the chart)
  • Total Dissolved Solids, TDS (gives water heaviness and a lingering aftertaste, plotted on y axis)
  • Hardness (the hardness equation yields results that correlate with TDS very strongly; I thus omitted hardness and plotted TDS)
  • Carbonation (degree of fizziness, i.e. the presence of bubbles. None of these waters are carbonated).

Enjoy!
