“It is purer than any water from any well. When cold it is colder to the fingers than ice. A marvellous transformation… But in the mouth, what is this? The gums tingle, the throat burns, down into the belly fire passes, and thence outward to the finger-tips, to the feet, and finally to the head… Clearly it was not water he had drunk: it was life.”

– Neil Gunn
