llanllyr SOURCE is a distinctively soft multi award winning premium glass bottled spring water (and now available in a 100% recyclable aluminium can) drawn from an entirely sustainable source beneath Soil Association accredited organic fields in unspoilt west Wales that were used at least as early as the year 1180.
An entirely recyclable can was launched in the summer 2008. It scores heavily over plastic not only in terms of recyclability, but also in the environmental advantages it has in manufacture, distribution and even efficient use of space.
We bottled our first water only a few years ago in 1999, but behind our highly contemporary product there's a truly fascinating story that begins literally centuries ago!
We know the same sources have been providing drinking water for over 800 years because a Cistercian nunnery was established on the site in 1180 and it survived for over 400 years, The history of the site goes back much further than that though.
Saint Madomonoc is said to have established a hermitage on the site in the 6th century and indeed evidence remains there to this day which is a magnet for historians from all over the world.
