Bling H20’s Dubai Collection bottle water, aptly named “The Ten Thousand,” costs a whopping $2,600 per bottle and is decidedly more expensive than the cost of the typical bottled spirit sold in the VIP room.
Or a family vacation.
The manufacturer boasts that The Ten Thousand bottle has more than 10,000 hand-applied Swarovski crystals. Each bottle is made to order and arrives with a certified number, white gloves and a handling case.
You’ll need those white gloves and handling case to consume your $2,600 bottled water because it’s all a part of the VIP lifestyle that professional fabulist Kevin M. Boyd (of Hollywood, of course) has created for you.
In case you’re on the fence about ponying up that mortgage payment to get a taste of the sparkling water reserved for the world’s elite, perhaps you should consider the experience that Bling H20 will offer your taste buds.
According to its fabulous, VIP-only website: “At first taste, you will notice there is a light consistency to Bling H20, which is smoothly followed up with a light sweetness throughout with no aftertaste.”
“The savory journey leaves the palate refreshed and satisfied.”
The website adds that Bling H20 undergoes a nine-stage refining process, is “wonderful served chilled,” and is the “perfect complement to your preferred meal or cocktail.”
In case you don’t have $2,600 lying around just begging to be spent on bottled water, perhaps you should shop at the low-end of the Bling bar, and treat yourself to the $25 gold and platinum bottles of water.
Or, if you’re really thirsty, you can spend about $2.50 and head over to the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and drink the bottled water there. After all, Bling H20 and Cracker Barrel Old Country Store get their water from the very same tap, the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, according to Smart Money.
The odd thing is that owner Boyd admits his water is run-of-the-refreshing-mill. Bling H20 isn’t about the water itself, said Boyd, “I’m selling a lifestyle.” –zondra hughes
