Why drink 8Water?
NZ water is considered one of the purest and cleanest in the world. We believe our brand and water can compete on the world’s stage with the big, established brands.
Our story begins in September 2016. Our search for the purest sustainable artesian water that would fit with our premium brand took many months until, finally, we found what we were looking for in the farthest reaches of New Zealand and drawn from a depth of over 250 metres where water flows to the surface under its own pressure.
Our 8 Water is something special – a bottled water brand that offered more health benefits than just hydration. We sought a better taste with no additives. Our water is naturally alkaline and has virtually no taste. It has an airy or light mouth feel with a hint of sweetness that cleanses the palate. Our water’s distinctive taste is comparable to white wine.
Our pure, premium artesian water started as tiny Antarctic raindrops hundreds of years ago. Drifting northwards they eventually fall as rain in the unspoiled, remote mountain ranges of New Zealand where they trickle underground to ancient mineral-bearing rocks.
Flowing underground for at least 80 years, our 8 Water absorbs organic elements like silica which revitalises skin, hair and finger nails plus calcium for healthy teeth and bones. This unique subterranean journey gives 8 Water its distinctive taste. Plus, 8 Water’s pH balance of 7.5 means it’s slightly alkaline for faster re-hydration.
This unique journey makes 8 Water one of the purest and cleanest waters in the world. And the purer the water, the healthier it is for you.
One of the things that makes us unique is the “Made and Bottled to Order” concept whenever we can which ensures that 8 Water is as fresh and pure as possible when it reaches you, our customer, something we are really proud of.
Why Drink Artesian Water?
Many people simply can't understand why choosing Artesian water instead of other bottled water is important. You can come up with several reasons including taste, but the most important reason is that it is healthier for you.
Some brands of bottled water are simply purified tap water. The purification process used not only remove any contaminants it actually removes all of the good minerals from the water. The minerals are then added back after the process.
Any bottled spring water can taste good. However, knowing the origin of the water is very important as it may come from a contaminated source. Contaminants come from the ground as the water passes over the rock, and includes acid rain, ground contaminants, toxins from factories and farms, and bacteria.
New Zealand's water rates amongst some of the purest natural artesian waters in the world with a population density of less than 1 person per square kilometer.
8 Water is drawn from a depth of over 250 metres. It spends over 80 years naturally filtering its way to our special, very deep, very pure aquifer gathering natural minerals and electrolytes.
8 Water is naturally alkaline which helps to re-balance the general modern acidic diets. No animals or livestock are permitted on the land of the plant and only organic weed control is used to ensure 8 Water remains pure and untouched.
