Our Water is 100% from a single artesian source of pristine water in the Collon Cura Mountain in the Neuquén province of Argentina. We bottled at the source away from civilisation in the high mountains in the Andes at 1200 metres above sea level.
Artesian water comes from an aquifer; a naturally formed underground chamber consisting of layers of permeable volcanic rock that bears water, overlain by protective, impermeable rock that limits the entry of contaminates into the confined aquifer and pressurizes the chamber. In order to access the water, the rock barrier must be penetrated by a borehole from where the water surface naturally.
Patagonia Water is different because of its extraordinary source; a protected artesian aquifer found deep underground in the remote mountains at the heart of the Andes. The unique mineral composition, which contributes to Patagonia Water’s soft and smooth taste that reflects the high purity of the water sourced from an artesian aquifer untouched throughout time and without human intervention until you unscrew the bottle’s cap.

**Analysis in Milligrams per Litre
Electrolytes are charged molecules that help support the balance of fluids in the body.
Patagonia Water has 100% naturally occurring electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, magnesium and chloride.
Patagonia Water’s pH is 7.7. Pure or purified water has a pH of 7. Drinking and natural water can range in pH due to dissolved minerals and gases. Solutions with a pH of less than 7 are said to be “acidic” and those higher than 7, “alkaline”.
Patagonia Water’s bottles are made from high-grade PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic, which is designated with the #1 code at the bottom of the bottle. The FDA approves PET as safe for contact with food and beverages. PET is also fully recyclable and can be transformed into a number of products such as food and beverage packages.
PET has a broad application in the food and beverage industry, serving as primary packaging for numerous items, including soft drinks, juices, ready-to-drink teas and water. PET has been safely used for many years and has met FDA’s rigorous standards, ensuring its safety as food and beverage container. The FDA has conducted research reviews and concluded that PET containers do not pose health risk to consumers and do not leach harmful amounts of substances into their contents under foreseeable conditions of use.
No, Patagonia Water packaging is not made with Bisphenol A (BPA). Patagonia Water bottles have never contained BPA.
In Patagonia we are currently developing a 1 litre (1000 ml) glass bottle to be launch worldwide during this year.
Patagonia complies with International Quality Standards giving 18 months shelf life to our waters.
The best serving temperature for Patagonia Water is between 45 and 50° F (8 & 10 ° C)
The best way to store and preserve Patagonia Water’s purity is keeping it in a cool, clean place away from any direct contact with the light and heat sources.
