All beverages have one thing in common with each other: they’re made mostly out of water. Water is a big part of our bodies, and it’s an even bigger part of our drinks. Like beer brand Olympia’s slogan says, “It’s the water!” Water. Water. WATER. Water water water water.
But where do all the drinkmakers get their water? Surely they can’t all come from secret springs like everyone claims, right? Well, wonder no more. I did the research, and the answers may surprise you!
• Olympia’s water comes from the toilet.
• Sobe’s water comes from the toilet.
• Hershey’s brand Dog Milk is partially-sourced from toilet water, being that dogs drink much of their water out of toilets.
