For our limited edition 1.5 litre water bottles we've collaborated with the legendary West Indies batsman Brian Lara, bringing you two designs to celebrate his renowned records.
501* : World record for the highest individual score in first-class cricket, playing for Warwickshire against Durham at Edgbaston in 1994
400* : World record for the highest individual score in a test match, playing for the West Indies against England in Antigua in 2004
What's more, we are not just giving away the profits from every Brian Lara bottle sold to charity, every penny from the sales will directly go to the Sathyarti Movement in India.
These beautiful pure copper bottles were produced primarily as a health aid and secondarily for their eye catching design.
There are many copper bottles available to buy online, but a large percentage of them are actually produced in large-scale factories where quality control might not be up to scratch.
My copper bottles are made on a small scale; are quality controlled to the most minute detail; are tested for lead and are made from 98% copper and 1% zinc.
RINSE WELL BEFORE USE
Only store water in the bottles. Water must be stored in the bottle for at least 6 hours before drinking. When you have nearly run out of water, refill the bottle without emptying it. This will ensure the fresh water mixes with the water already containing copper, making it unnecessary to wait for another 6 hours to drink it. For best effects, empty bottle nightly and refill.
Every 2 to 6 months (depending on wether it is oxidated on the inside) wash the inside of the bottle by filling it with warm to hot water, squeezing in a lemon or 100ml vinegar and 2 teaspoons baking soda or salt. Stir well and leave to sit for an hour. rinse thoroughly with warm water and it's ready to use again.
Oil the lid every few weeks if it gets squeaky.
