This new company is selling bottled Irish rainwater for €12 a pop

And it’s definitely real.

LAST YEAR, WE saw somebody attempt to sell jars of Irish soil online - but the business didn’t get off the ground.

Today, and on a similar theme, the Irish Rainwater Company launched.

They sell 25mls of Irish rainwater in a glass vial for €12

The first thing people might think about such a venture is that it’s bit of a piss take – but the man behind the site told that it is indeed legit:

We are genuinely serious about selling the water, we think it makes a great keepsake for anyone who has been to Ireland on a holiday and got caught in the rain, those times make for happy memories and hilarious stories, what better thing to take a souvenir than the rain!

So, launching today, the Belfast-based company is up and running selling rainwater

How did it even come about, then?

The idea came to me as a group of my friends were chatting about novel online businesses, I thought Irish rainwater was good one and bought the domain.

€12 might be a bit steep though, given shipping is included on top of that?

I know the cost seems expensive but it’s a short run we’ve made and low quantities are expensive to buy.

He confirms that the vials themselves are manufactured in China, but the rainwater is very much Irish:

“Yep the rainwater comes from my back garden, collected in a bucket!”

It looks like Americans will be the main target for some good old Irish rain:

The States is who I had in mind yeah, I think those guys will love it! I checked to make sure we could legally post it just in case, we can so it’s all good.

So now.
