Far beneath the earth’s surface at a depth of 327m is the natural home of Antipodes; an artesian aquifer composed of silica-rich ignimbrite rock. Assessed as New Zealand’s deepest high-quality water source, it exists under such immense geological pressure that the water flows naturally all the way to the surface. Its measured age at bottling is between 50 to 300 years.
Antipodes water is exceptionally pure and needs only a simple microfiltration before bottling. No sterilization, no additives, no industrial cleansing, and processing. Our bottling line is state of the art and our quality testing is rigorous - their sole purpose is to ensure the water in our bottles is unaltered from the purity of its origins. We bottle only Antipodes at our source – nothing more and nothing less.
A water’s subtle taste can be determined by the number of minerals per litre. At just 130 milligrams per liter, its minerality is remarkably low in comparison to many other glasses of water. With much of this light minerality composed of silica, our water offers almost imperceptible flavor and a gentle, silky texture on the palate. The average pH level of Antipodes at the source, is a neutral 7.0, providing Antipodes with its unique clean and subtle taste.
