Out for an afternoon bike ride to Point Defiance in Western Washington I felt my bodies’ reluctance to continue after a grueling uphill climb. This seemed like the perfect time to stop and grab a bottle of water from a nearby gas station. As I perused the cooler section my eyes were drawn to a shiny silver bottle of Osmosis Mint Water. Like a raccoon, once in my hand I could not put the shiny object down and proceeded to check the ingredients for my two mortal enemies sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. The label called it mint water and according to the ingredients that is exactly what it was: purified water, mint.
An incredible surprise awaited me inside that shiny bottle, it was as if a cool mountain stream had been laced with fresh mint leaves and then bottled. If the phrase cool and refreshing hadn’t been previously coined this would be the product to do it. Available in Mint, Mint Lime, Mint Tangerine and Mint Grapefruit, this promises to be my go-to water. You can currently purchase Osmosis in Washington, Oregon and Alaska.
