Bottled Amsterdam canal water is perhaps the most expensive bottle of water that you can't (or shouldn't) drink. The Dutch city is celebrating the 400th birthday of its canals by bottling some of the water in them and selling it. That's right, for the low price of $68.98 you too can own water pulled from Amsterdam's canals.

While buying water souvenir canal water may sound silly, stranger things have happened. Sand from beaches across the world has been packaged and sold, as has trash from New York City. The bottled Amsterdam canal water comes in an artistic container that details the history of the canals and would make a unique art piece for a Dutch expatriate or world traveler.
