Icelandic Glacial™ is natural spring water from Iceland and is renowned for its high quality and exceptional purity. It is the world's first bottled water to be certified as CarbonNeutral® for product and operation.
The source of Icelandic Glacial is Iceland’s legendary Ölfus Spring. Formed over 5,000 years ago, the Ölfus Spring is continuously replenished by a gradual filtration of rainfall and snowmelt over uninhabited and untouched lava fields. One of the world’s largest natural springs, over 900,000 cubic meters of water overflows from the Ölfus Spring into the ocean every day. This is more than twice the amount of all bottled water consumed worldwide.
To protect this valuable natural resource, the local government in Iceland has applied a 128,000-acre exclusion zone around the Ölfus Spring. As a result, no farming, animals, or buildings are permitted within this area.
Naturally occurring pure drinking water is a rare and precious commodity. Taking great care never to damage or deplete the Spring, we source less than 0.1% of the total water that naturally flows to the ground surface to ensure the preservation of the Ölfus Spring.
