Our Water

Our Water Source

Rural-Staffordshire

Our water comes from a fully registered Natural Mineral Water source in rural Staffordshire and comes from the same spring used to supply Britvic Plc.

It is a superb quality low sodium, neutral PH natural spring mineral water which combines a unique mineral content and a refreshingly neutral taste.

BRC-LogoThe water is drawn from aquifers situated in Triassic sandstone 250 metres below ground which meet the all relevant legal and regulatory requirements.

Furthermore, the site has BRC Grade A status accreditation.

Currently our Spring Water is tankered in to our bottling plant at our HQ where it is subject to the first of a series of highly rigorous quality control procedures including:

– tanker discharge inspections

– product certification/testing

– sterilised unloading procedures

– certificated auditing of tanker sterilisation

– water analysis certification

Triple-Triple Filtration

Our Accredited Spring Water supplier triple filters the product to 1 micron before we receive delivery.

It is then subject to our own in house additional triple filtration to achieve a finished water of 0.2 microns absolute.

This filtration depth ensures product integrity and quality.

Lab-Testing
Purity Testing

Each batch is quality sampled and tested for purity in our lab.

Public Health England Testing

Subsequent independent microbiological tests on the same batch are conducted by Public Health England who provide a report on every single batch of water we supply.

We only distribute this water once it conforms to strict quality, safety and hygiene standards for public consumption.

Independent Testing

Every batch of 1550 bottles we produce is independently analysed and tested.

Once it has passed strict comprehensive test parameters can it be certified as clear and ready for sale.

Microbiological Inspection Audits

A historical audit of these microbiological inspection records will show them to be “all clear” with no problems regarding bacteria and other contaminants etc recorded.

About Natural Spring Mineral Water

About Natural Mineral Water

Aquifer-2

Spring water occurs naturally underground in a layer known as an aquifer. It contains dissolved natural minerals derived from its hydrogeological journey

Each natural mineral spring water source has a unique chemical composition and a distinctive taste.

And there have been many testimonies to its therapeutic effects for centuries.

Natural spring mineral waters are classified as one with very low, low, medium or high mineral content.

Water with a high mineral content tends to indicate a longer duration to reach the abstraction point, thus absorbing more minerals.

Spring waters can be further classified according to their ion structure ie:

  • sulphate waters
  • bicarbonate waters
  • sodium chloride waters (saltwater)
water-regs-2Approved At Source

Suppliers of this water are required to comply with the provisions of The UK Natural Mineral Water, Spring Water and Bottled Drinking Water Regulations 1999 and the EU Natural Mineral Waters Regulations Council Directives 80/777/EEC and 80/778/EEC.

And to receive approved Natural Mineral Water Status, the water has to be categorised by a number of criteria including its mineral and trace elements content and stability, its purity at source and other aspects including conservation.
