Which is the purest water available?

Maybe Antipodes?

Having been consistently rated as one of the finest waters in the world and the purest in New Zealand – they are naturally passionate about our environment.

This starts deep down below the surface where this water is sourced. Antipodes is from a huge naturally renewing aquifer which replenishes itself at far greater rates than we could ever extract.

It is bottled at source only in glass bottles which are produced locally from recycled glass which is, in turn, recyclable. They are the first premium water brand to be certified carbon neutral, they are not only carbon neutral in their production and export , but carbon neutral to any table, hotel room or home anywhere in the world. To achieve this they are working closely with the carboNZero programme at Landcare Research. Their carbon footprint is minimal and food miles equal zero.

The water has only been marketed since 2003, when the company founder, a restaurateur, questioned why he was selling waters imported all the way from Europe. He knew that there must be a good source in New Zealand, invested time and research, and discovered the source of Antipodes. Rather than copy European bottles, he sought something more contemporary, stylish and reflective of contemporary New Zealand (the bottle is a modern take on the old-fashioned New Zealand beer flagon). The water was embraced by his countrymen as enthusiastically as New Zealand wines.

The Antipodes are a group of rocky islands of the southern Pacific Ocean southeast of New Zealand*, so named because they are diametrically opposite the globe from Greenwich, England. Antipodes artesian water, not exactly within shouting distance of the islands, but in diametric opposition to Europe’s bottled waters, is bottled at the source in Otakiri, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand (red area on map). The water comes from a 1000-foot deep pressured aquifer and spends about 50 years filtering through a substrata of ignimbrite, a fine-grained volcanic rock. The surrounding Rotoma Hills area has a population density of less than one person per 250 acres, with no commercial or industrial activity: the source and its environment are extremely pure and clean.
