Soda water sparkling water in Thailand, Seltzer Water, Club Soda, Tonic water ? any big plastic bottles sold or any easy way to make your own ?

 

Cheers, trying to quit all zero sugar drinks, soda water can help, as I also like it.

But do we really have to carry all these small soda water glass bottles ? or can you find somewhere big bottles as Perrier, but at standard price ?

 

Or maybe there is an easy way to make your own carbonated water at home ? Would it be healthier ?

 

Please share your experience !

I buy Rock soda about 46 baht for 6, not worth messing about with it yourself, these soda waters do have a small amount of salt in them though but can't taste it. Some of the others seem to vary in quality but Rock is consistently good

so is soda water healthier than soft drinks ?

the problem with soda water is that the cheap ones are only small bottles. boring to carry.

Do you know any cheap big bottles ? thanks.

no space to stock and don't like to stock anyway, bigger bottles would be a lot easier...

but maybe only foreigners drink sparkling water without whisky...

Ok i love to stock things, that is just me. But I havent seen many affordable sparkling waters. The soda stuff is cheapest. I have seen bigger bottles but they are imported stuff in the Villa market or Tops. You pay a lot more.

Depending on where a person lives, Central Supermarkets and some Tops outlets, as well as Tops Online, tend to stock some 1.5 ltr and 2 ltr imported sparkling mineral waters. The 2 ltr ones are from the UK and the 1.5 ltr ones are from Spain, among others.

 

I usually buy the 2 ltr UK ones from Central for around 99 to 119b per, often on discount. They're both recyclable plastic, though the UK ones are easier as they're clear plastic and not green tint.

 

I've never found/seen any kind of Thai produced sparking waters / soda waters in 1.5 ltr bottles or larger.

AFAICT, the Thai beverage industry seems to think the only purpose for carbonated / sparkling soda waters is as a bottled mixer for booze.

 

For me, OTOH, it's an everyday drink in place of boring TH regular bottled or tap water and a healthier substitute to carbonated sugary or chemically sodas.

 

In the U.S., it's pretty common to find 1.5 liter bottles of such both plan and with various no calorie/no sugar fruit essence flavors added -- black cherry, lemon-lime, pineapple, etc....  But never ever seen any of those here.

 

I guess the TH beverage industry is wedded to sugary (or sugar substitute) sodas and sugary bottled so-called green tea drinks.

for the homemade types, it's easy to buy the bottle and infusing kits abroad or even locally... But finding the right/quality carbonation cylinders seems to be more problematic...

 

Especially since AFAIK, you're not able to import-mail those here because they're pressurized.

Here is my recipe:
- the juice of 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda 
- 6 tablespoons sugar (optional)
- 1 liter of pure cold water. 
The mixture should be mixed and filled with water. If desired, you can add ice and mint.
