Where Our Spring Water Comes From
Our water is bottled in Shropshire beside the Wenlock Edge, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The Wenlock Edge is a geologically famous limestone escarpment created 400 million years ago and is 15 miles long stretching between Much Wenlock and Craven Arms. Wenlock Edge consists of Silurian Limestone which was originally formed in a shallow, warm, clear, subtropical sea, similar to parts of the Caribbean today and was South of the equator. This warm sea was rich in dissolved calcium carbonate and supported reef building animals, brachiobods, gastropods and trilobites which are found today fossilised within the rock. During the Ice Age this Silurian Limestone was pushed and moved from South of the equator to its new home in South Shropshire where it is now a protected Site of Specific Scientific Interest (SSSI) area.
Our water filters naturally through this rock strata providing it with its unique blend of minerals, including calcium and selenium, giving it a refreshing and delicately sweet taste.
The underground source emerges from 60 metres deep and travels through stainless steel pipes into the bottling hall, where the water is bottled using the latest technology. Check the mineral content here.
To ensure the process is environmentally friendly, we have been operating a bottle deposit scheme since 1995, encouraging our customers to return the bottles to ensure the bottles are reused, refilled or recycled.
