Aug 13th, 2020
A Water With... famed water sommelier Martin Riese on his new podcast with his co host Michael Mascha: Today we are going to London / United Kingdom and visiting Michael Tanousis from Aqua Amore, a distributor of bottled water, soft drinks, office refreshments, birch, maple & coconut water.
For mor information:
Michael Tanousis is the Co-Owner and Co-Founder of Aqua Amore Ltd which was established in 2007 as the UK’s only dedicated fine water retailer and trade supplier. In 2009, he pioneered an investigation into the suitability of ‘fine’ water alongside wine, a project known as ‘Minerals & Terroir’. Since 2007, his insight and curiosity has enhanced the offerings of Britain’s top dining establishments and his appearances in various media have addressed the questions of thousands of consumers.
In order to offer perspective to his knowledge, he successfully completed a Water Sommelier ‘Doemens Academy’ accreditation in 2017 and is keen to continue expanding his learning. His particular interest is on the development of a simple and universal taste ‘lexicon’ for water, so that one’s preference can be articulated in everyday language; he believes that this is the key to de-mystifying the discernible and recognisable impact that minerals have on the palate.
Aqua Amore is a family business started by two brothers in 2007. We supply excellent bottled waters and soft drinks to homes, businesses, restaurants (from Michelin-starred to local gems), five star hotels, coffee shops, delis, offices and workplaces - meeting the growing demand for mineral waters, healthy drinks and non-alcoholic beverages.
Aqua Amore understand the importance of bottled water for both hydration purposes and in a gastronomic environment. We also understand and appreciate the growing importance of non-alcoholic beverages such as healthy drinks, birch, maple and coconut waters, as well as soft drinks - all consumed by a everyday consumer with a growing knowledge and understanding of drinks.
Moreover, with our growing understanding, Aqua Amore have helped guide and inspire a new generation of soft drinks.
