Best not to. We advise storing the bottle in a cool, dry place. There is no harm in filling the copper bottle with refrigerated water but we advise against storing the copper bottle in the fridge. The reason is that the refrigeration process could undo all of the benefits and positive properties such as alkalinisation that can be gained by storing the bottle at room temperature. It’s worth mentioning that the reflective internal copper does maintain temperature well. Therefore filling with cold water will remain colder for much longer than a plastic bottle. Read more…
