Antipodes Water comes from a 327m (1000ft) deep pressured aquifer, taking up to 300 years to naturally filter through substrata of ignimbrite, a fine-grained volcanic rock. The precious source is located in Whakatane in the rural Bay of Plenty of New Zealand.
Antipodes world firsts go back over a decade, including the first and only mineral water to have achieved carboNZeroCertTM certification, and the first bottled water to be recognised by the United Nations for environmental practices and responsibility.
