“ Manufacturer: Coca-Cola / Water „
I recently purchased a bottle of Malvern Still Water and I found it to have quite a refreshing taste. I don't usually buy bottled water as I tend to stick to tap water. One day I forgot my usual bottle of tap water and had to pop to the shops, I decided on Malvern.
It is bottled at the Primeswell Spring and has been gently filtered through the surrounding granite rocks. The mineral content is said to give 'Malvern' a clean, fresh and delicate taste making it a perfect accompaniment to food and wine. I would have to agree that it is a nice delicate taste but I have to add that in the end it is just water.
The bottle has a pale blue cap with a white label around the middle of the bottle with navy and pale blue lettering. On the bottle it gives you the mineral analysis but I won't go into a lot of detail about that. The typical values are listed that it has a pH of 8.0 and has Calcium listed at 35 this is per litre, the bottle I purchased was 500ml. For full details there is a customer careline 0800 227711 number which is given to the side of the bottle.
A little bit of history regarding the water is that in 1987 Malvern gained recognition as a Natural Mineral Water. This reinforced its reputation for purity & quality and the water is solely taken from the Primeswell Spring. The water flows through a loose gravel bed and which is then gravity fed straight into the Factory which is around 1.8km away. The spring source itself is enclosed, secured and lies within the conservation area of the Malvern Hills. The spring has never been known to 'dry up'.
You can purchase Malvern water in a range of different sizes and in larger packs. There is also the choice of still and sparkling varieties, I believe that they also produce natural fruit juices. The factory is owned by Schweppes, which is owned by Coca Cola. The Queen even drinks it and people still travel many miles to collect water from the springs on the hills.
In the end I would have to say that even though it is a good quality bottled water, I don't think I will be buying it every day. However if I do find myself needing to buy bottled water I would probably buy this one. For the most part I will be sticking to tap water as for one it is cheaper, but if you are a fan of bottled water I would have to recommend it!
