Think all bottled water tastes more or less the same? Think again!

Martin Riese is America’s first and only “water sommelier,” and he created a 44-page water menu at Ray’s & Stark Bar at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Offering bottled waters from around the world, complete with extensive descriptions and data about the various minerals in the waters, Riese is out to show the world that the kind of water you use to make your morning coffee or even fresh pasta dough actually matters.
