Every drop of Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water comes from carefully selected spring sources and is captured at the source.
Filtered Naturally By The Earth
There are over three hundred fifty-eight million trillion gallons of water on Earth. But not all water is created equal. Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water comes only from carefully selected mountain springs that are continually replenished. What starts out as rain and snow, soaks into the ground and is filtered naturally by the earth with a distinct composition of minerals to create our crisp, refreshing taste.
10 Step Quality & Safety Process
Once our natural spring Water is collected at the source, it undergoes stringent controls to ensure that by the time it gets to you, each drop has been screened for 30x more contaminants than the leading pitcher filter removes. Our testing standards meet or exceed those set by the EPA and FDA—so you can be confident in the pure quality of Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water.
Every time you drink Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water, it tastes just like it did when we found it because we seal every crisp, refreshing drop in specially designed bottles that are recyclable, regularly tested for safety, and free of BPA* (bisphenol-A).

Selecting a spring requires a lengthy process of research and analysis. We only select sources that analysis shows can be used and managed for long-term sustainability, which means we study the springs and the areas around them to help ensure that each detail – from the geological makeup to the site history and weather patterns – is just right.
Procuring the Water

Plus, we monitor plant and aquatic life in the area to help ensure the ecology remains stable.
The Origins of The Ice Mountain Spring
Named for its exceptionally crisp, clean and refreshing taste, Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water has become one of the most popular bottled spring water brands in the Midwest. So, whether you’re enjoying Ice Mountain during the long winter months or on hot summer days, Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water may very well be the best tasting water for you and your family.
The history of Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water can be traced back thousands of years to the last ice age. As glaciers that covered much of the northern United States and Canada retreated, the natural elements they scraped up and left behind formed mineral-rich deposits, some of which were hundreds of feet thick.
Along the edge of the glaciers, melting water formed streams and rivers. The sand and gravel deposits left behind created aquifers, where large volumes of very pure ground water are present. In some places, this ground water rises up to the surface and creates a natural spring. Today, a few select springs have been chosen as sources for our crisp, fresh tasting Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water.
