About Our Water
Our water comes from Wenlock Spring, located in Shropshire beside the Wenlock Edge in an area of outstanding beauty. The Wenlock Edge is a geologically famous limestone escarpment created 400 million years ago and is 15 miles long stretching between Much Wenlock and Craven Arms. Wenlock Edge consists of Silurian limestone which was originally formed in a shallow, warm, clear, subtropical sea, similar to parts of the Caribbean today and was south of the equator. This warm sea was rich in dissolved calcium carbonate and supported reef building animals, brachiobods, gastropods and trilobites which are found today in the fossilised within the rock. During the Ice Age this Silurian limestone was pushed and moved from south of the equator to its new home in South Shropshire where it is now a protected Site of Specific Scientific interest (SSSI) area.
Wenlock Spring water filters naturally through this rock strata providing it with its unique blend of minerals, including calcium and selenium, giving it a refreshing and delicately sweet taste. The underground source emerges from 60 metres deep and travels through stainless steel pipes into the bottling hall, where Wenlock Spring is bottled using the latest technology.
"We chose Wenlock Spring for its excellent clean taste, the bottle presentation and the subtlety of the sparkling water. Our customers are very discerning; everything must complement the food and the whole dining experience". Will Holland, La Becasse, Ludlow - Michelin Starred.
