antipodes /an-tip-o-deez/ 1. Australia and New Zealand form the perspective of Europe; 2. a pair of points, places or things that are diametrically opposite each other; antipodal a.: situated on the opposite of the globe; antipodean a.; of , relating to or from the Antipodes.

For this reason we sought out the source of Antipodes deliberately to offer a mineral water that is ideally suited to enhance the fine dining experience.
