Mineral Water Status
It goes without saying that you cannot be a great water bottling company without great water.
At Classic Mineral Water we are extremely lucky with the water source that we are sitting on. We are one of the very few companies that hold Mineral Water status and we have access to over 100,000 litres of water per hour from our four on site borewells.
In 1980 the company carried out extensive geological research in the local area. This resulted in the discovery of a chalk aquifer 150 metres below ground level, which has a water source that is extremely palatable and of high beneficial mineral content.
The composition and quality of this water source has remained unchanged for centuries because of the geological structure of the surrounding area. The unique location of Ireland on the western edge of Europe has resulted in an environment that is unspoilt and high in natural resources. For more than 60 million years, basalt lava overlaying chalk has been subject to weathering and erosion, which has resulted in the formation of a multi-layered mass of rock – an excellent filter 150 meters deep which permits only slow percolation of ground water. It is this long slow filtration that gives Classic Mineral Water its exceptional purity and unique mineral composition. Mineral Water status is recognised as the highest standard for bottled water.
