Dwr Natural Mineral Water

Sourced from the heart of Wales and naturally brimming with minerals, this bottled water is the perfect choice for refreshment.

Bottled at Source

DWR Natural Mineral Water is sourced and bottled in the breath-taking Brecon Beacons National Park. This area is one of only five “International Dark Sky Reserves” in the World. We source from a place of stunning natural beauty with rolling valleys, wide-open hillsides and wildly beautiful forests, waterfalls and caves. Our refreshing water is as natural and untouched as the area it comes from.

Natural Purity

Our water originates as rainfall, which gently falls on the mountains at 800 ft above sea level, and filters through layers upon layers of limestone. This natural filtration removes any unwanted sediment whilst infusing the water with rich minerals. This journey takes hundreds of years before our water reaches our natural springs, resulting in an unrivalled, natural purity.

Health Benefits

Water plays an essential role in human life. More than half an adult body is made of water, and more than 70% of our daily intake should be water. The EFSA advises women need 2 litres a day, whilst men should drink 2.5 litres to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Water plays a vital part in all main bodily functions and the benefits of being well hydrated include healthy digestion, clear and healthy skin and aiding in healthy weight loss.

Perfect Balance

The light and refreshing taste of our water comes from a perfect balance of minerals. DWR Water naturally has a high calcium content but is very low in sodium and nitrates, which is hugely beneficial to our well-being. With a neutral pH and medium hardness, DWR Water is a drink that is pure in flavour and full of goodness.

Visit The Brecon Beacons Dark Sky Reserve

Dark Sky Reserve status is a prestigious award given to only a handful of destinations that can prove they have an outstanding quality of night sky. They must also pledge to reduce light pollution to enhance the quality of this amazing asset. The entire Brecon Beacons National Park is an International Dark Sky Reserve, we intend to preserve our night skies, reduce energy wastage, help protect nocturnal wildlife and hold events related to the fascinating topic of astronomy. You're very welcome to come and experience our dark skies for yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is DWR?

Dwr is the Welsh word for water, and describes our water perfectly, as it derives from many years of travelling through the Welsh Countryside. Wales has a famously beautiful landscape from the Brecon Beacons to the Peaks of Snowdonia, and the water filtered from these magnificent mountains is no exception.

How much water should we be drinking?

The European Food Safety Authority’s scientific experts recommend a daily intake of 2.5 litres of water for men and 2.0 litres of water for women, through food and drink consumption. This is supported by the Department of Health who recommends that we should drink 6-8 glasses of fluid per day. Of this, they suggest that 70-80% of the daily water intake should come from drinks, and the remaining 20-30% should come from food. Water is the only fluid you need to hydrate as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Drinking water instead of drinks that contain calories is also one way to reduce calorie intake.

Is there a difference between mineral water and spring water?

Both natural mineral water and spring water must originate from a natural, protected and specific underground source. They must also be bottled at source and be micro-biologically safe to drink without treatment. The main difference between natural mineral water and spring water is the requirement of natural mineral water to have a stable mineral composition.

How can you ensure natural mineral water is free from contamination?

Natural mineral waters must be safe for consumption in their natural state at source. To ensure absence of contamination, producers – Brecon Carreg included – have long been committed to source protection. Protection zones around the source can cover vast areas of land. Bottled water producers also test regularly at source, during bottling and before water leaves the bottling plant in order to meet all legal safety regulations and ensure their products are of the highest possible quality.

How often is bottled water tested?

Bottled water is tested regularly at the source, during bottling and before its journey to the shops and stores. The frequency of controls amounts to hundreds or thousands of tests each year for every brand of bottled water sold in the UK. And of course that includes Brecon Carreg.

How is naturally sourced bottled water different to tap water?

Naturally sourced water is piped directly from the underground source to the bottling facility and must be safe to drink at source in its natural state without disinfection. Tap water can come from various sources. About two-thirds of the water sourced by utility companies in the UK comes from surface water (rivers, lakes etc.) and a third comes from underground sources. Tap water also goes through a number of processes before it reaches the consumer and is generally chemically treated, disinfected and chlorinated to make it safe to drink.

How quickly should bottled water be consumed after opening?

Once opened it is recommended that bottled water should be consumed within a few days, especially if the bottle has been drunk from directly.

Why does bottled water vary in taste?

Naturally sourced bottled waters have different concentrations of minerals in them, depending on the geology of the land that they come from, which gives each bottled water its taste. Brecon Carreg for instance has a low sodium content, which makes it as healthy as it is tasty.

Does bottled water vary nutritionally?

All mineral water contains zero calories, sugar, preservatives and additives. The mineral content of naturally sourced bottled waters can vary depending on the geology of the land where they come from. For example some waters are naturally higher in calcium or magnesium.
