Goldschläger is a Swiss cinnamon schnapps (43.5% alcohol by volume or 87 proof; originally it was 53.5% alcohol or 107 proof), a liqueur with very thin, yet visible flakes of gold floating in it. The actual amount of gold has been measured at approximately 13 mg in a 1-Litre bottle of Goldschläger. As of November 2012 this amounts to €0.56 EUR or lower on the international gold market.
Goldschläger was produced in Switzerland until the 1990s, when the brand was acquired by Diageo, which continued production of Goldschläger schnapps in Italy. Since 2008 it is a brand of Global Brands and produced in Switzerland again. The German word Goldschläger ("gold beater") designates the profession of gold leaf makers, who beat bars of gold into micrometre-thin sheets.

I don't think it's from the water source as the water is filtered several times and a crack in the pipe after the filtering would show more than just gold, so it's probably from some plating coming lose and will show not to be gold, also gold is heavy and should not be possible to come all the way out.
I once had silver flakes in my water which turned out to be from a pump in the apartment building i was living in.
They ran multiple tests on the flakes and found one of the most precious metals on earth -- gold -- was coming out of the tap. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
