Blog: Chris Brook-CarterWater on the brain

Chris Brook-Carter | 11 November 2003

If you thought the fashion for celebrities launching their own wine brands was a step too far along the path of self-importance then you are going to love the latest concept in the bottled water sector.

Highland Spring Group is apparently now producing a personalised celebrity water service with David Coulthard as its first customer.

The Formula One driver has commissioned three different designs of “Coulthard Water”, one for his yacht in Monaco, one for his parent’s villa in Spain and one as a souvenir bottle for his museum’s café in Twynholm, Scotland.

Watermedia, the arm of Highland Spring producing the waters, apparently got the idea from the US where it says “music celebrities, TV and film stars are drinking ‘own private label’ and this looks set to continue as we’re noticing a growing celebrity market and increasing enquiries from agents, businessmen and celebrities.”
