We are pleased to announce the addition of Ocean to our range of locally sourced waters. Ocean is a naturally desalinated water, a unique water and the first water of its kind from New Zealand. Unlike mineral waters, championed for their mineral content, Ocean is almost devoid of minerals and by its nature a cleansing water. But unlike purified waters, Ocean has a soft, subtle and satisfying flavour on the palate. Ocean is hand harvested and produced in small batches, a truly artisan water. Fresh seawater is subjected to a natural desalination process, followed by filtration and exposure to UV...

We are pleased to announce the return of Ferrarelle. This will be the first time Ferrarelle has been available in New Zealand for some time, and so fondly remembered by many. Ferrarelle comes from the valley of the River Assano (also known as Bagni meaning baths), in the Campania region north east of Naples, in the shadow of an extinct volcano by the name of Roccamonfina. The still active Mt Vesuvius is only 60km away. Ferrarelle’s reputation was already well established in Roman times. Hannibal is reputed to have rested his troops at the source, and legend has it Ferrarelle...

Fluoride is derived from fluorite, the principal fluoride mineral in igneous rocks, formed through the solidification of magma or lava, and in some cases volcanic gases. Local councils may often add fluoride to municipal drinking water supplies as a ‘service’ to ratepayers. Excessive fluoride can cause mottling of tooth density in children. However, many health authorities champion small additions of fluoride for oral health. The recommended addition varies by market due to higher water consumption in warmer climates. In New Zealand the Ministry of Health recommends fluoride content for drinking water in the range of 0.7 to 1.0 mg/L or...

We opened our first physical water shop in 2006, At the time New Zealand had few imported mineral waters, other than the ubiquitous Italian San Pellegrino, and French brands Perrier and Evian. However, the market did have one emerging contemporary brand called Antipodes, as a nod to the British reference to countries down under. Much like New Zealand, other countries had their own emerging contemporary local brands that were gaining traction. Canada had BERG from Newfoundland, Scotland Speyside Glenlivet, and Wales Ty Nant, to name a few. Scandinavian waters were also gaining recognition on the world stage, spearheaded by VEEN...

One of the perks and pleasures from owning an online retail water business is sampling new, and sometimes lessor known, classic waters from around the world. It is also a pleasant surprise when the waters turn out to be both refreshing, in the sense of branding, and appealing in taste. So it was refreshing in both respects to have samples of Acqua Frisia from Italy arrive on our doorstep recently. Most global beer brands today have origins dating from natural spring water sources chosen for their respective qualities to produce great beers. Underlying its refreshing contemporary branding, the Frisia water...

Recently I have been reading, more fittingly referencing, a tome called ‘Ground Water and Wells’, Second Addition and third printing 1989. Not a recent publication and a book I borrowed from work. It totals 1082 pages, the Appendix alone is 178 pages, more than many books. It's a serious read and there are some jewels. Like what gives water its unusual dissolving powers, the reason mineral waters have minerals. The water molecule is made up of one negatively charged oxygen atom and two positively charged hydrogen atoms. However, the arrangement of the atoms is not symmetrical, but dipolar. At this...

The Otakiri Aquifer is located inland from Matata in the Bay of Plenty (BOP), New Zealand. The aquifer belongs to a ‘Deep System’ and is tapped at around 200 metres. The aquifer is artesian (no pumping is required at the bore) with strong pressure being driven from the Rotoma Hills. Water age is around 50 years and its catchment is a large area of natural native bush. The pattern and magnitude of concentration of elements is consistent, based on samplings taken since 1896, and has no seasonal fluctuations. The water is technically ‘spring water’ with a TDS (total dissolved solids)...

If you were searching for a brand and landed here, it may no longer be available, no longer available in New Zealand, or we may just no longer stock it. However, if you are interested in water, then you have arrived at the right place. We started aquadeli, and opened one of the world's first concept water stores for mineral waters, in 2006. At the time a few classic mineral waters were available in New Zealand, including Evian, Gerolsteiner, Perrier and San Pellegrino. There was also an emerging new generation of contemporary brands, such as VOSS, VEEN, New Zealand's Antipodes...

This book isn’t about mineral water or even bottled waters but does go into some depth about how water sources differ and what you should be looking for in a water or water treatment system. It will though make you think twice about what is coming out of the tap!

Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto presents evidence in this ‘New York Times Bestseller’ that molecules of water are affected by our thoughts, words and feelings. The quality of water is revealed in full colour photographs using high-speed photography of water crystals. His message is one of personal health, global environmental renewal, and a practical plan for peace that starts with each of us.
