When I drink water, my mouth gets dry. Doesn't happen with any other type of drink, only bottled water. Why does this happen?

In brief: Hard to say

Getting a dry mouth from only drinking bottled water is a strange complaint.
My first question would be does this happen with tap water also? If not, perhaps it's the bottled water. Despite claims of purity by many bottled water companies studies show significant levels of chemicals in many national brands of bottled water. If it happens with tap water also then I have no clue.
