Famously known as the birthplace of ‘The English Spa’ and the home of British bottled water; Harrogate is a wonder of the natural world, boasting 88 mineral springs, all hydro-geologically unique1. Our source has been specifically chosen for its excellent water quality, stable mineral composition and purity.
Our water is abstracted from an underground aquifer below the beautiful Harrogate Pinewoods. Our source draws from the protected surrounding catchment area, comprising Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation and the Birk Crag Nature Reserve. The area comprises ancient oak woodlands and moorland, supporting a rich flora and fauna, including several rarities, our water is virtually absent of nitrates and nitrites, reflecting the quality of the ground and catchment area.
It takes years for our water to filter through layers of rock until it reaches the level from which we abstract, some 50 metres below ground. During its journey our water becomes naturally enriched with minerals to create a refreshing, perfectly-balanced drink.
Our water is abstracted and bottled at source, in our state-of-the-art, showcase facility. It remains untouched following its journey, maintaining absolute purity. Our on-site micro-lab constantly monitors production to guarantee impeccable quality. We are proud to have always achieved the highest possible levels of accreditation.

Our water is characterised by an exceptionally clean and well-rounded taste. It is rich in good minerals, providing a subtly sweet flavour and hydrating mouth-feel. A neutral pH level makes it perfect for pairing with food as it will not cloud the palate.
An optimal balance of minerals ensures a refreshing and hydrating water, not drying like some mineral-stripped waters. It is virtually absent of contaminants such as nitrates, which can give water a processed, synthetic taste. Our sparkling water benefits from a very gentle carbonation, providing an easy drinkability and making it the ideal accompaniment to fine dining or enjoying on its own.
Best served slightly chilled, as nature intended².
