As one of the youngest islands on the planet, Iceland has a raw, natural beauty and a pristine ecosystem. Centuries of volcanic activity and an abundance of beautiful glaciers have left a stunning landscape unlike anywhere else in the world, and have earned the country the nickname, “Land of Fire and Ice.” Icelanders have made it a priority to preserve the unspoiled beauty of their environment which allows them to gift us with some of the cleanest, most pure water in the world.
Long before man 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 Spring is constantly replenished by a gradual filtration of rainfall and snowmelt over uninhabited and untouched lava fields. 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.
Icelandic Glacial™ takes immense pride in running a completely sustainable operation fueled entirely by geothermal and hydroelectric power. At 7,688 sq. ft., the 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.
