Our Story

“It’s crazy! Why does Bath not have its own bottled spring water?!”

This was the question Bathonians, Mark and Rachel Allen, and friend, Bath-based film producer, Jonathan Willis, asked themselves one day in 2016 over lunch.  

Undeniably, the UNESCO world heritage City of Bath is internationally synonymous with water, and has been for thousands of years. From the city’s founder King Bladud in 863 BC, the Romans’ Aquae Sulis (the Waters of Sulis), as Bath was once known, the pleasure-seeking Georgians and our very own inspiration today, the water bottling entrepreneur “JB” Bowler, who started supplying Bath with spring water between 1864 to 1969, water was, and continues to be, at the very heart and soul of our city.  

However, the sulphurous thermal water that millions have bathed in isn’t necessarily the most pleasant of thirst quenchers! And so, our search for a local natural spring water supplier started.

As proud Bathonians and passionate believers in high quality, locally sourced produce we wanted our water to be local to Bath. Our quest lead us to the original source of Bath’s water in the nearby Mendip Hills. Our water filters through ancient limestone vales deep underground and is drawn and bottled at source on organic land.  

‘Bath Water’ was born.
