Chapter 4: Key Trends in the Bottled Water Market
The emerging trend of ‘prestige’ bottled waters is reliant not only on the
                                                                                                   Figure 4.32: Evian Palace
sourcing of the ‘purest’ water, but also very much on packag ing, designed
to appeal to a super-premium audience. A good example of such a product
is Evian Palace. This new luxury bottle is currently only available in fine-
dining restaurants and hotels. Launched in early 2007 it is available across
several regions including North America and Europe. The Palace Bottle is
claimed to have been designed to represent the modern vision of Evian
whilst maintaining a strong tie to E vian’s heritage with the Alps. It
incorporates a unique pouring instrument called the ‘Palace Pourer’ claimed
to be the first of its kind in the bottled water industry. The pourer has been
designed to deliver both on form and function, to provide a true luxury
water experience’. The restricted distribution of this product helps to secure
its status as a ‘prestige’ item – though for Evian and other bottled water
manufacturers there is an opportunity to market a restricted number of such
products to retail – as luxury items.

Another example of a prestige bottled water comes in the form of Voss.
Launched on the Greek Market in November 2006, Voss is a lightly sparkling
‘artesian’ water. The water is produced by Voss Production ASA in Norway
and distributed by New Age Media. The bottle, a sleek cylinder, is claimed         Source: Innovations in Bottled Water

to have been designed by one of Calvin Klein’s designers.

Artesian water is water collected from confined, underground aquifers. Because the water is protected by an impermeable
layer it does not come into contact with pollutants and therefore is pristine in nature. Artesian waters are often marketed
as super-premium products.

One of the most famous of artesian waters is Fiji water. Claimed to be a favorite of celebrities, the water is promoted as
the ‘taste of paradise’. Marketing literature claims; ‘450 year-old rain water passes through nature’s most perfect filtration
system, giving Fiji Natural Artesian Water an unparalleled purity that provides consumers with the best possible tasting
water’. Launched on the Canadian market in February 2007, Fiji water has been a favorite of US celebrities since 1998. By
ensuring product placement in films and TV, supplying the water free of charge to a number of celebrities as well as
gaining listings in top quality h otels and restaurants, Fiji Water secured its fortunes as a sought after super-premium brand.
The product is now widely distributed and can be enjoyed as an ‘affordable luxury’ by all. Fiji Water exemplifies how
bottled water can attain premium status.

Evian Palace, Voss and Fiji water are examples of the growing importance of packaging design in marketing products as
super-premium. With the health and premium trends set to grow in importance over the next five years, packaging design
will becoming increasingly important as a product differentiator.
