AQUA Carpatica Sparkling Mineral Water- underground water path
In the balanced sparkling waters, AQUA Carpatica Naturally Sparkling Mineral water has obtained the acclaimed GOLD prize. The taste of water comes from its mineral content, the underground path it takes and the geological structure of the spring area. AQUA Carpatica Sparkling Mineral Water deposit is the outcome of a complex hydro-geological process. This process requires a long-time natural filtration of over 40 years, which takes place in the depth of the Oriental Carpathians (the Eastern part of the Călimani Mountains). The blending of the meteoric water and the CO2 takes place at a great depth in the volcanic andesite rocks of over 10 million years.
AQUA Carpatica is drawn from a pristine and pure aquifer, nestled deep in the heart of the untouched Carpathian Mountains and has conquered taste specialists and consumers around the world with its unmatched pure taste. The Carpathian Mountains is a unique hydro-geological phenomenon for mineral waters. The metamorphic rocks represent a geological structure wherein, after a long underground path, the meteoric water is naturally purified. Deep within the volcanic structures of Călimani Mountains, the carbon dioxide takes an upward journey, impregnating the deep areas of the naturally filtered water. The heavy fissured areas allow the ease of the sparkling mineral water deposits. Thus, by the means of drilling the heart of the hydro-mineral deposit can be infiltrated and a pure, nitrate-free water is obtained.
Through a natural 40 year filtration in a location with no agriculture or industrial activity in the surrounding areas, AQUA Carpatica’s source is protected from chemicals and other contaminants, meaning it is simply as mineral water should be: pure, virtually nitrate free, extremely low in sodium, with low mineral content and containing natural electrolytes, it makes for the ultimate way to keep to keep hydrated, especially whilst exercising.
The title received at Gourmet Waters is accompanied by several other international recognitions and awards for AQUA Carpatica Sparkling Mineral Water taste such as the Superior Taste Award by ITQi- The International and Quality Institute and Fine Waters International Competition in Guangzhou, China.
