Icelandic Glacial – The Purest Tasting Water on Earth
Long before humans reached the remote island of Iceland, a massive volcanic eruption occurred, creating the Ölfus Spring deep below the earth’s surface. For 5,000 years, water has filtered slowly through layers of lava rock, creating exceptionally pure and naturally alkaline water with the perfect mineral balance. Shielded by an impenetrable layer of lava rock and surrounded by a 128,000-acre exclusion zone, the Ölfus Spring is constantly replenished by a gradual filtration of rainfall and snowmelt over uninhabited and untouched lava fields. Icelandic Glacial is sourced from the legendary Ölfus Spring in Iceland, one of the world’s most pristine ecosystems. With over 900,000 cubic meters of water overflowing from the Ölfus Spring into the ocean every day, it’s one of the world’s largest natural springs and Icelandic Glacial uses less than .1% of the overflow to the sea.
Icelandic Glacial takes immense pride in running a completely sustainable operation fueled entirely by geothermal and hydroelectric power. At 7,688 sq. ft., our world-class facility is one of the world’s greenest and cleanest. Fully automated and hands-free, the facility is capable of producing up to 30,000 bottles per hour. The filling process takes place in a clean room environment held to the highest laboratory standards. The water for Icelandic Glacial travels directly from the underground spring into the bottling facility, which maintains a positive air pressure to impede the outside air. The first time Icelandic Glacial encounters the open air is when the bottle seal is broken. Nothing is ever added or taken away. Ever.
Icelandic Glacial is the world’s first bottled water to be certified CarbonNeutral™ for both product and operation. We reduced emissions through a groundbreaking combination of internal reductions, such as green geothermal and hydroelectric energy to power our facilities. In a steadfast commitment to reach a target of net-zero Greenhouse Gas emissions, we also invest in verified renewable energy, forestry and resource conservation projects around the world. And we go even further, all bottles utilize glass or recycled rPET, BPA-free plastic, and boxes are made with 50% recycled paper products. All our bottles and boxes are 100% recyclable.
Icelandic Glacial is exceptionally pure and naturally alkaline water with a pH of 8.4. The high pH in Icelandic Glacial may help to offset the low pH acids found in many foods to help the body maintain a healthy pH balance. It possesses a naturally low mineral content (TDS of 62ppm) that does not crowd the palate with heavy metals, minerals or silica. Water so pure, nothing is added; nothing is taken away.
Icelandic Glacial can be purchased in both glass bottles and high-grade BPA free 100% recyclable PET plastic in various sizes. We also offer Sparkling Water in Unflavored, Sicilian Lemon, Tahitian Lime and Bulgarian Elderflower to arouse your senses.
