Dipping into profitable waters isn't new, but one enterprising . group of bottlers now promises the ultimate purity: harvesting icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland for an entire line of water/vodka and even beer. The advantage is obvious, says Ron Stamp,co-founderof Newfoundland-based Iceberg Industries; The water supply was formed during the glacial age, long before man-made pollution. His company melts down growlers (named for the noise ice malces when it breaks off) and sells the liquid as Boreaiis beverages in North America, Europe and the Middle East. The firm went public in 2000; sales are expected to double to $1.3 million this year. But harvesting the water is tough work: Nets are used to tow the icebergs to shore, where they're broken into half-ton chunks with a giant grappler. Who knows? This may be Just the tip of the iceberg. For more info, check out Swanson's goes haute At Ike in New York City and Butter in San l^rancisco, diners are plunking down $6 a pop for the privilege of being served a meal you can buy in your local grocery's freezer. We're talkin' Swanson's TV dinners, whicli retail for about half that amount in stores. They're best sellers at Butter, which co-owner Chris Solle describes as a "white-trash bistro." (The menu also features TaterTots and SpaghettiOs "like your baby sitter used to make," Solle says.) 'The Salisbury steak flies out of here," says Ike chef Scott Gerow. Swanson's home kitchens in New Jersey aren't surprised: They sell more than 3 million TV dinners a week. Nostalgia is a driving force, admits the company's Kevin Lowery. "Swanson's wound up being a special thing for dinner. It was OK to eat dessert first, especially if it had the brownie." ca Contributing: Michele Hatty USA WEEKEND - April 6-8,2001 17 Once a Dav.
