The water you add to whiskey--especially rare and vintage bottles --should not be just any water, it had better be a perfect accompaniment for an exceptional occasion.
SPIRIT is the first bottled water ever to be produced to be exclusively used as a mixer. Dissolved minerals that can disturb taste and mouthfeel--such as magnesium and calcium--are filtered out, rendering SPIRIT's qualities similar to the indigenous water used to produce the finest Highland Scotch.
In addition, SPIRIT is fortified by the addition of an effective natural antioxidant “L-Arginine”.
SPIRIT's low mineral content does not alter the taste of your beverage, but instead optimizes your whiskey's natural character, revealing the subtle hints behind dominant aromas and flavours. Manufactured using the latest technology under a rigorously hygienic production process, SPIRIT is water of the highest quality formulated one drop at a time to enhance your whiskey drinking pleasure.
SPIRIT can be interpreted as two distinct connotations: as a distilled or alcoholic beverage or referring to a person’s eternal soul.
The SPIRIT emblem, two serpents entwined around a staff, recalls the ancient Greek association with Asclepius, the ancient Greek God of medicine, and symbolises benevolent properties. It was believed to be able to cure a sick a wounded person just by touch. The serpent is also linked with pharmacology and antisepsis, as snakes possess a natural anti-venom to counteract their own poisons.
Ancient beliefs of Traditional Chinese medicine in Asia hold the serpent and its tissues to be invaluable for the promotion of vitality and health. This resulted in what is known as “Snake Wine”, an alcoholic beverage produced by infusing whole snakes into rice wine or grain alcohol. This curative was first recorded as consumed in China during the Western Zhou dynasty (1046–771 BC) and considered an important tonic to reinvigorate a person according to Traditional Chinese medicine.
In mythology, snake goddesses represent rebirth and renewal; as the snake sheds it skin, so too is the soul rejuvenated. Dualistic in nature; snakes have been regarded as maternal in their protection of crops from vermin, and also feared as threatening and dangerous.
The bird head on the logo recalls Bird Headed Gods or Entitie s in ancient mythology (such as the Egyptian sky god Horus) which often represent rebirth and resurrection, as pictographs carved onto ancient stone walls depict God-like entities, or perhaps even extraterrestrial beings, with the head of a bird.
Many of them are interpreted as masks worn by the Creator Gods to symbolize a connection to the Gods and the ascension of the soul...and the evolution of human consciousness.
