Well, you have water sommeliers too. Came as a total surprise to me.
Martin Riese is a sommelier. But not for wine. Or beer. Or any other beverage you typically would think requires an impeccable palate and expert recommendation. No, Riese is a water sommelier — and one of the best in a small, but quickly growing field. (The Wall Street Journal has called him “The world’s foremost water sommelier.”) Riese’s crusade? To taste, analyze, judge and spread the word about the different flavors of water he believes should be savored like a fine wine.
