Zaro's

This water has the characteristics of most of the greek water I have had. This one though has a lot less Co2. Still this water has a real clean taste and finish and has low TDS. Perfect for someone who does not like a hard water.



Aqua Rimini

Lots of carbonation (natural w/ natural added) very champagne like, a touch of sodium 10mg or 1% DV  with 4% DV of Ca. TDS 560 mg/L, Waiting for more info from the source. Don't think I will find this much since there is no info anywhere about it. I love the art deco label.

Aqua Sara

This water is fantastic. Very high TDS hence the light effervescence. One of the cleanest tasting water I have had. This bottle is 90% of your DV of Ca. This is a great water for people who don’t like classic or bold effervescent waters. Another great water from Romania

Borjomi

i'm on the fence about this one, first I hate plastic bottles, they definitely change the flavor of the water.
Mine as a weird smell to it, I can't place what it is. The water has a high sodium count, making it reminiscent of Apollinaris.
This water is very interesting with it’s high Na content making the water sweet yet very salty. I have had it a couple of times now and there is still a strange after taste that I get every time, even when the water is aerated and in a glass for a while. The only way I can describe it is plastic(y)

Jamnica

This is another hard to find water, This water has a super high TDS mostly from it’s high HCO3- and Na content. This lightly effervescent water has a sweet taste and clean finish. There are about 20 brands from Croatia I think this is the best.

I did notice that this water is a tad strange tasting if it becomes warm and flat just like most effervescent mineral waters.



Radenska

The one thing great about living in queens was the diversity, it is very hard to find any water from Slovenia here. This water has very small bubbles, and a bit a sodium make this water very refreshing, kind of like san faustino but better. Also this water has 8% of your DV of Ca & Mg

There are not many waters from this country, I have only read about 15 but this is all over Queens. There are a select few places where you can get it in glass which in my opinion is far better....I think glass is better is better in every application.

Knjaz Milos

Knjaz Milos is one of the the best high mineral waters I have had from Serbia. It has 10% of your DV of Na as well as 10% DV of Ca and 15% DV of Mg. This is one of my everyday water that is pretty easy to find in Astoria. This has a great taste and is a classic to light bubble. I think the new one I have been getting (green bottle) has a higher CO2 content than the classic one(blue bottle), but I can't confirm this and they have not responded to my inquiries.

Here is more info about the water from the site and more mineral facts:


Knjaz Miloš is one of the few mineral waters in the world with a very specific composition. The water is characterized by an ideal calcium to magnesium ratio (2:1), which allows optimal absorption in our bodies.
Knjaz Miloš is one of the oldest Serbian brands and is often the first thing that comes to mind when mentioning Serbia.
A two century long tradition speaks in favor of the quality of Knjaz Miloš water, while the quality itself is greatly influenced by the fact that all of the springs are located within the undamaged ecosystem of the Aranđelovac spa.
