THE NATURE OF OUR
Technically, Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water got its start thousands of years ago when the northern US was covered in ice. As glaciers melted over time, they deposited thick sand and gravel aquifers, which naturally filter the groundwater. In some cases, this water flowed to the surface to create, you guessed it, natural springs — springs we carefully selected as the sources of our fresh-tasting drinking water.
What is spring water, anyway?
Great question. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA): “Spring Water is water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth.” To be able to label our product as “spring water,” we have to satisfy stringent standards — standards we proudly meet or exceed. That’s why every bottle of Ice Mountain® Brand Natural Spring Water is labeled as 100% natural.
STRAIGHT TO THE SOURCE
The vast majority of Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water comes from three carefully selected spring sources in Michigan. But we also source our fresh-tasting water from other states and selected springs in and around America’s heartland:
Sanctuary Spring: Rodney, MI; Evart Springs: Evart, MI; White Pine Springs: Evart, MI; Frontier Springs: New Tripoli, PA, Bangor, PA, Hegins, PA, South Coventry, PA, Pine Grove, PA, Stroudsburg, PA, Newmanstown, PA, Oakland, MD; Glenwood Spring: St. Albans, ME; Sweetwater Falls: Hohenwald, TN; Ruby Mountain: Chaffee Cty., CO.*
* Note: We occasionally have to source from additional springs when demand is high. Our labels are updated with sourcing information, so be sure to take a look next time you enjoy a bottle of Ice Mountain Brand Spring Water!
Did you know? 95% of Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water is sourced from three natural springs in the heart of Michigan.
