Our Water

Pure Natural Mineral Water 

Having fallen as rain over a century ago, our water is drawn from an aquifer 125 metres below ground level. Our well is located on our 80 acre organic estate in the picturesque Lammermuir Hills in the Scottish Borders.  Over its many years of percolation, the water dissolves the minerals out of the limestone and sandstone to produce a unique water. Slightly alkaline, our water treats you to a crisp, pure refreshment, as nature intended.

Other than filtering, our water is untouched and is exactly as it came from the source.

What's so special about our water?

From a height of 170 metres, our water has travelled through weathered sandstone, weathered limestone, soft old red sandstone interspersed with layers of clayey marl. As the depth increases, the rock becomes harder still with red sandstone. In the borehole area, the sandstones are overlain by a extensive sheet of basaltic lavas, approximately 50 metres thick. It is considered that the water that fell as rain probably hundreds of years ago has been stored in the aquifer since then. Drawn from 125 metres below the surface of our well, the water extraction temperature is 8 -9 degrees with no seasonal variation.

 

Microplastics

Microplastics are very small pieces of plastic that pollute the environment. Microplastics are not a specific kind of plastic but rather any type of plastic fragment that is less than 5mm in length. They enter natural ecosystems from a variety of sources, including cosmetics, clothing, plastic products and industrial processes.

 

Our water is 100% microplastic free.
