Aqua Pura

Filtered through ancient, mineral-rich rocks, our water is naturally pure with a consistently clear and refreshing taste. That’s why we’re called Aqua Pura – quite simply, our name means Pure Water.

We are really proud of our Cumbrian heritage and have been bottling water at source in the beautiful Eden Valley for nearly 30 years. Today Aqua Pura is one of the fastest growing British natural mineral water brands in UK, meaning that we can share a little taste of Cumbria far and wide.

At Aqua Pura we are passionate about the outdoors and about promoting healthy, active lifestyles. We’re delighted to be a long-term supporter of the Great Run and Great Swim event series along with the Cancer Research UK Race For Life, and we do our bit by handing out over 3 million bottles of Aqua Pura to help hydrate these amazing participants every year.

We are also more than a little proud of our surroundings. We want others to come and experience the beauty of Cumbria for themselves, and we partner with Cumbria Tourism who help to protect and preserve this stunning setting and ancient landscape we call home.

We’ve put together a host of amazing walks, rambles and experiences for you to enjoy on our website along with a handy Hydration Calculator that lets you know if you’re drinking enough water.
