    You never disappoint me Ralfy. Besides your whisky reviews, I enjoy your English, understanding every word you speak … keep up your speech in your own way! This one was specially interesting about cooper and microorganisms interactions.

    Btw, some of the best cheese like traditional artisan Parmesan is also made in copper tubs.

    Thank you Ralfy. I shall look into this copper infused water concept. You continue to by my spirit guide in all things whisky, and otherwise (on your other channel) where all manner of enlightening ideas and concepts are shared, discussed and examined. Thanks again, and cheers!

    i think it could be the electrical properties of copper. a silver drinking vessel would be interesting to test. there are some interesting videos on youtube advocating that water has memory and will change molecularly depending on how it flows and spookily how if you have negative or positive thoughts towards it.

    I am surprised that as of yet no distillery has decided to bottle its own water, the unique water that is used in their single malt, for sale. If folks collect water in Islay to complement their local malt…there is clearly spontaneous interest.

    Ceramic would be an insulator. It is not conductive .

    And it's easy to steal from church roofs and internal pipes from disused buildings. So I heard.

    Can we get an Oban review soon Ralfy? It’s one of the least reviewed brands in your portfolio and well worth another look.

    I’ve heard that a liquid with a PH less than a 6.0 can cause copper to leech. I’ve experienced copper poisoning myself once from having a few too many vodka mules (the lime juice was well below 6.0). Was a pretty miserable experience.

    If you think water stored in copper tastes good then you should try water from a pure silver container. Silver has all the benefits of copper you mentioned but better. Not many people know that copper AND silver kills lots of viruses and bacteria on contact. Thanks for spreading knowledge sir.

    Water definitely makes a difference. I started my journey into single malts while living in Oklahoma where most water is from wells into the Ogallala Aquifer. This is a pretty hard water, lots of dissolved minerals and it is about 7.6 in pH. As I grew up on this water it was what I was used to.

    A few years later I moved to Seattle and had water that is from glacial runoff. A very soft water with not a lot of dissolved metals. Every drink tastes different and I found I liked more spirits than I had before. I guess there is a reason the beer guys are in the mountains and not on the prairies.

    Water from a different source, or of a different mineral makeup would absolutely change taste. NYC pizza is the best not just because of the way it's made and what it's made of, but because of the water used in the dough. It imparts those minerals to the crust and you get a bit of a different taste. Some pizzerias outside of NYC have proven this by first importing NYC tap water and later having their tap water chemically altered to match the mineral content of NYC water (thus imparting the same taste).

    As such, I think there's something to using local water, but you'd probably do well to use it quickly or store it in something like a UV purifying canister.

    PS, before you laugh about NYC water, especially if you're outside the US, NYC's tap water is consistently judged among the best in the US.

    Ralfy, I m a firm believer in cooper in both food and alcohol, as a chef we use cooper mixing bowls when beating eggs as it gives them more volume. Love the extras, keep them coming.

    Wouldn't a copper-gold alloy be better?
