Enter Gomberg Selter Works

Every seltzer bottle is hand-filled in the last remaining seltzer factory in New York City. Gomberg Seltzer Works, Inc. is nearly 60 years old. It was established in 1953 by Moe Gomberg and his son Pacey Gomberg. Third-generation owner Kenny Gomberg and his partner Irv Resnick have every intention of keeping the business fizzing.  

Most of the bottles that pass through Gomberg Seltzer Works were hand-blown in Czechoslovakia and Austria in the 1800's. The antique bottles are filled in a 100-year-old, London-made Barnett & Foster siphon filler. New York City tap water is triple-filtered through layers of sand, charcoal, and paper. It is then chilled to 43°F. The carbonator is a small vessel which mixes water and CO2 with a series of rotating paddles.  The resulting product, seltzer, is forced under pressure into a six-head siphon filling machine.
