Harrogate Spa


Sainsbury's have started selling Harrogate Spa mineral water, "Britain's original spa water". I'm fairly sure that whatever Sainsbury's is selling, it's not original Harrogate spa water. My dad is from Harrogate, and he used to have to drink this stuff. It tastes strongly of sulphur. It's the kind of thing that no-one would ever, ever drink unless by accident or because their parents made them drink it. It's more like medicine than water.

Maybe they persuaded someone to change their name by deed poll to Harrogate Spa, and then collected it from rainfall in their garden?
