‘it’s not from a car park, honest’
The jars of Swiss air come in three sizes – £200 for a jeroboam (three litres), £135 for a magnum (one litre) and £78 for a pint.
A quarter of any future profits from Mr Green’s business will go to the Worldvision Clean Water Initiative in Africa and he has already donated £800 of his own money to the charity.
Mr Green, pictured, said: “I actually go 3,000m up to fetch it. I don’t go into a car park to get it, honest. I have lived here for 20 years and the Swiss don’t know what they’ve got. The air really is something special.
“When I go up the mountains I really do feel better, I am not imagining it. I seriously feel almost reborn.
“There’s a quick ‘pfsst’ and you can take a breath of genuine mountain air from Switzerland.
“But you don’t have to open it. You can just keep it as a collector’s item or to remind you of the good life and open at a later date or celebration.”
