Deeside Mineral Water flows naturally from springs at the historic Pannanich Wells. Its purity and long history of curative qualities are due to the local geology, which produces a mineral water that is unusually low in minerals, giving a clean, fresh taste and wonderfully smooth texture.
Located within the protected Cairngorms National Park and close to Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands, the remote moorlands around the springs are free from people and pollution.
The mountains rise above the Royal Deeside Valley where over 1 billion litres of rain falls in one square mile around the springs every year. The water filters through millions of cracks in the underground rocks for around 50 years, collecting its special properties before emerging under its own pressure at the artesian springs on the heather clad hillside, free from the influences of man.
The water flow rate and temperature remain constant throughout the year, confirming the deep nature of this source. There are no boreholes to pump out more water.
Sustainability is important and we work to protect and preserve this scarce and precious resource, only using a fraction of what nature provides. The springs produce around 1% of the annual rainfall around them. The rest of the water returns to the natural water cycle.
Naturally received, never forced.
