People go to great lengths to protect the things that are dear and precious to them. And in this case, they have been doingÂ so for 500 years. That is how long it has taken to turn water of the highest quality into an exclusive and one-of-a-kind mineral water. Gize, a gold-filtered mineral water whose source is located in the eastern-most reaches of Canada in Spa Springs, Nova Scotia. This water has made its way through layers of rock bearing the imprint of continental shifts, volcanic eruptions and glacier movements to obtain a unique level of purity and mineralization.
The Miâ€˜kmaq people revered the mineral-rich water as a fountain of youth as early as 1500 and believed that it had powerful healing properties. In the 19th century, visitors came from far and wide to bathe in the waters. These visitors included members of the British aristocracy such as the Prince of Wales, who would later go on to ascend the throne as King George V. Now, in 2010, the water has finally been filled into specially designed bottles â€“ but only after being refined to perfection using gold filters, of course.
The calcium-rich, gold-filtered mineral water is one of 30 mineral waters from outside Germany and the only one from North America to have been officially certified as a natural mineral water.
Gize is not only available in its classicÂ Gize Still and Gize Sparkling, but also in four sophisticated compositions: Lemon-Elderflower, Raspberry-Ginseng, Pear-Vinegar and Pineapple-Coconut.
For the â€œoutstanding product designâ€ of its glass bottle and as â€œbest flavoured new waterâ€ Gize has been awarded by numerous internationally renowned juries within the beverage and luxury industries.
The water is distributed worldwide to selected and limited partners only and available at the exclusive Gize Online Flagshipstore www.gize.com.
