Götz was raised by a German father and Taiwanese Mother during the 80s and 90s in Beijing, where he witnessed China's economic reform. He recalls how his family slowly switched from drinking boiled, distilled water to local and imported bottled water to installing home filtration units. And during the summer holidays he would drink from the various mineral-rich public fountains located in the old German spa tradition.

Now married and again living in Beijing, Götz has consulted Chinese Firms from Jilin's "mineral water reservoir", the Changbai mountains for the past 5 years. As a Water-sommelier he hopes to contribute to the growing success of the Chinese drinking water culture..
