Our Heritage

With a history dating from 1571, Harrogate Spring is Britain’s oldest bottled water and has been revered by Royalty and enjoyed across the world for centuries. First bottled in 1740, it is ‘The Original British Bottled Water’ from ‘The Original British Spa Town’ – authentically Harrogate and quintessentially British.

Following discovery of the mineral springs in the 16th century, Queen Elizabeth I’s personal physician recommended their medicinal properties and Harrogate was christened ‘The English Spa.’ Wealthy visitors travelled to ‘take the mineral rich waters’ and Harrogate became a popular health destination.
