Located in the heart of Mexico City, the Casa del Agua water bar is elevating the most basic of earth’s elements to a whole new level of artistry. With its laser-like focus on a singular product – the boutique/bar collects, triple filters, evaporates, and condenses its water on site. Not content to leave it at that, the Casa’s in-house water experts apply a re-mineralizing and ionizing process to increase their product’s hydrating, alkalizing and antioxidizing capacities. In the end, at the completion of its watery journey, the Casa’s freshly brewed nectar is hand-bottled into beautiful, reusable and recyclable glass bottles. In a world where everything from underwear to alcohol has gone designer, Casa del Agua will have you keeping up with the Jones’ right down to the very last sip.
To help brand and build out a setting for their most elemental of products, Casa del Agua’s founders tapped a talented team of architects, interior and graphic designers. The end result is a modern-day apothecary that speaks as much to the past as it does to the present. With its reasonably priced bottles (.60 – 3 USD) and environmentally conscious set-up to boot, this little Casa falls nothing short of one tall glass of water.
