This water was originally bottled in the early 1900s in Longtown Village Hall, which was built for this purpose. The water was drawn from a spring situated above the Great Turnant Farm and eventually became the village water supply. This premium bottled water has once again been captured from the source which lies in the shadow of Hatterrall Hill, an area which has long been celebrated for its exceptional mineral water.
Hatterrall Ridge, launched in 2010, is available in still and sparkling variants in stylishly packaged Bordeaux glass bottles (330ml, 750ml).
The idyllic village of Longtown nestling in the foothills of the Black Mountains on the Herefordshire / Welsh border is the tranquil location of Black Mountain Mineral Water Company. The business is owned and run by a local family who have lived and farmed in the locality since the mid 1800's.
Glyn and Dorinda Watkins started the business in the 1980s as a diversification from sheep farming. They discovered that the natural spring on their farm was of outstanding quality and prolific in quantity and set about producing the finest quality bottled water.
