The world's oldest bottle of mineral water was found in the Baltic Sea. The bottle has 'Selters' inscribed on it.

The world's oldest bottle of mineral water was found deep in the Baltic Sea. The bottle is 12 inches long and has 'Selters' inscribed on it. Interestingly, Selters is a German luxury water brand which is still sold today and had gained popularity sometime in the nineteenth century!

A group of Polish archaeologists found the bottle 40 feet below the water in Gdańsk Bay. This extremely rare bottle was in a good condition and still corked when recovered from the sea. It is believed that the bottle was produced between 1806-1830 when most sealed flasks either contained beer or wine.

The archaeologists haven't opened the flask yet and are not very sure of how the water tastes after 200 years. This bottle may also help them trace the shipwreck in which it was found. Apart from the bottle, parts of ceramics, bowl and dinnerware were also found in the sea.
