A new chapter in the bottled water industry has been written. Bling h2o, bottled in Tennessee at the English Mountain Spring, is an amalgam of modern sculpture, Hollywood, and truly great water. The brand’s creator, Hollywood screenwriter Kevin Boyd, envisioned a fine water presentation that made a statement equivalent to Cristal Champagne and Tiffany jewels. Boyd knows the importance of image and what your choice in bottled water conveys to the public.

The drink has also shown up at the Grammy’s, Emmy’s and MTV Video Music Awards in the hands of celebrities such as Jamie Foxx, Mariah Carey and Shaquille O’Neal.
