Hildon
Hildon Natural Mineral Water comes from beneath the chalk hills of the beautiful Hampshire countryside in the South of England. The water is wholesome, naturally filtered and crystal-clear. It is free from pollution and has a stable composition, being naturally low in sodium. The water is bottled at the source and whether it is delightfully still or gently sparkling, it has a distinctive, delicious taste. 


Hildon's beautiful understated bottle is served at scores of first class hotel and resort properties, is seen on the dais at the Ryder Cup when the event is played in the UK, it graces picnic tables at polo matches, and is allegedly first choice at Buckingham. The chemistry of Hildon features good levels of Calcium and Bicarbonates. According to the company, the Nitrate level is 6 milligrams per liter.  

There are strict rules governing the labeling of water as Natural Mineral Water, Spring Water or Bottled Water. Water sold as Natural Mineral Water must originate in an officially recognized spring, be microbiologically wholesome and have been protected from all risk of pollution. 

The original Hildon bottle was created in 1988. Its design was based on the classic Bordeaux shape with its distinctive high shoulder, which originated in the early 19th century. Hildon has always had a close association with the wine trade and is the first choice for cleansing the palate at many prestigious wine tastings.

A Little Help For Drought Plagued California
California's drought is now in its fourth year, and 97% of the state is experiencing dry conditions, sparking water shortages and huge wildfires. An Alaska company is planning to be the first to ship massive amounts of fresh water, potentially as much as 10 million gallons a month. Alaska Bulk Water would take water from the Blue Lake in Sitka, and ship on a tanker directly to California. Water experts in California are skeptical, not necessarily because of the idea but as a result of the cost.

Not to be out done, The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) and California Assembly member Devon Mathis this week have coordinated the donation of more than 100,000 bottles of bottled water to the families of East Porterville and surrounding Tulare County, some of the areas hardest hit by California’s ongoing drought--many Porterville households have had no running water for almost two years.

IBWA has organized a large-scale donation event. Four tractor trailers from IBWA member companies Nestle Waters North America, DS Services, CG Roxanne, and Absopure recently rolled into town, together donating approximately 113,000 16.9 ounce bottles, which will provide safe drinking water to residents for about a week.

Hats Off To Anheuser-Busch
When emergency water is needed, Anheuser-Busch steps up. They have been producing cans of water which have been sent to numerous natural disaster sites. Most recently to victims of the floods in Texas and Oklahoma.

Another emergency product used globally, is Seven Oceans, produced by GC Rieber, Bergen, Norway. Manufactured in accordance with stringent demands for hygiene and under the surveillance of the Norwegian Health Authorities. The product is internationally approved, and has a 5 year shelf life. (It may not be something you would see on a white cloth table, but it certainly has its place.)
