Pere Renom

“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal, in order that you may, as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”
Oration on the Dignity of Man – Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

The taste of water

published on 24.04.2019

We have all studied at school that water is colorless, odorless and tasteless. But in reality we all also have the experience that there are better waters than others. What determines the taste of water? To find out we will make a simple scientific study. We will sample waters from different origins and we will test them to assess their organoleptic properties. Then we will compare them with the corresponding chemical analyzes. Identified the components that give it the best flavor, we will make the perfect water.
The following spoke: Ricard Devesa, Head of the Chemistry Department of Aigües de Barcelona; Ramon Creus, director of Operational Support of Aigües de Barcelona; Manel Vilanova, head of the laboratory of the Catalan Water Agency, and Faustino Muñoz, sommelier and director of Colmado Quílez.
