Icelandic Glacial: Water from the Land of Fire and Ice

Nestled in the heart of Iceland’s stunning landscape lies a natural wonder that has been slowly perfecting itself for over 5,000 years—the legendary Ölfus Spring, the source of Icelandic Glacial bottled water.

Icelandic Glacial is a certified Natural Mineral Water, recognised as such by both the European Union and Great Britain. This certification represents the highest drinking water standard, ensuring it is microbiologically pure with no unnatural ingredients or interference and with a consistent mineral content.  

The Journey of Natural Filtration

Icelandic Glacial’s story begins with rainfall and snowmelt in Iceland’s untouched lava fields. This water slowly filters through layers of volcanic rock over millennia, emerging in the Ölfus Spring with remarkable clarity. The spring, formed after a massive volcanic eruption 5,000 years ago, is protected by an impenetrable layer of lava rock and a vast 128,000-acre exclusion zone, ensuring its continued pristine condition.

Nature’s Balance

What truly makes Icelandic Glacial unique is its natural composition. With a Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) level of just 62 parts per million, it offers a crisp, clean taste that doesn’t overwhelm the palate. This low mineral content makes it an ideal dining companion, perfectly complementing food and wine without imposing its own flavour.

Perhaps most notably, Icelandic Glacial boasts a naturally high pH of 8.4, making it alkaline without artificial processing. This unique characteristic has made it a favourite among health-conscious consumers seeking balance in their hydration.


Icelandic Glacial takes pride in its commitment to sustainability. The brand bottles less than 0.1% of the spring’s natural overflow, ensuring minimal impact on this precious resource. The bottling facility is a marvel of eco-friendly technology, powered entirely by geothermal and hydroelectric energy – a testament to Iceland’s commitment to clean energy.

From Source to Bottle

The journey from spring to bottle is a testament to nature and technology working harmoniously. The water flows directly from the underground spring into a state-of-the-art bottling facility. In a hands-free, fully automated process, Icelandic Glacial is bottled in a clean environment that maintains positive air pressure to prevent any outside contamination. In fact, the first time this water meets the open air is when you twist open the cap.
