Eauzone Irish Mountain Water

Spring Water From The Land Of Yeats

 

 

CAPSULE REPORT: From a “secret source” in Ireland, this water calls itself “one of the greatest discoveries since penicillin.” Perhaps a bit hyperbolic, this is not “the purest water known to man” or an “elixir guaranteed to enhance mind and body,” but a nice water with which to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Unfortunately, it needs the fabled luck of the Irish: The company has been struggling, and may have shut down since we began our story. We’re publishing our article anyway, hoping that a white knight will appear. In the interim, have some Tipperary, an Irish water with staying power.

Ireland is an island with 32 counties, six of which are part of Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom; the remainder comprise the Republic of Ireland. That’s where you’ll find County Sligo, a beautiful wooded region that was home to Ireland’s greatest poet and Nobel laureate, William Butler Yeats (1865-1939). In fact, Yeats is buried at Drumcliffe Churchyard, under loaf-shaped Benbulben Mountain—the same mountain that cloaks the source of Eauzone Pure Mountain Water.

Eauzone’s source lies deep in a wooded valley beneath the Benbulben Mountain. The company maintains an air of mystery, stating that the location of its facility—where the water is pumped from the source and bottled—is “undetectable from land or air” and “known only to the Eauzone team”: though certainly employees, postal and package delivery services, meter-readers, and the transportation services that carry the bottles away to market must know the “secret.”* The source, thousands of years old, was discovered in 2003 and the first bottle of Eauzone was bottled in January 2005.

*We hate to be snarky, but if it were less of a secret, the company might be doing better. As of press time, their water was no longer available in the U.S., and e-mails to the company were not returned.

The water is available in still and sparkling: the naturally still water is given some carbonation for those who like a sparkling water. The packaging is attractive and modern. The water has low mineral content—it’s a spring water rather than a mineral water. At 167, the Total Dissolved Solids are similar to Fiji Water (160 TDS), although the mineral compositions of the dissolved solids are quite different.

If you don’t mind a touch of the blarney—the marketer’s claims that Eauzone is “one of the greatest discoveries since penicillin” (hmm) and not just “the purest water known to man” (all of the bottled waters we write about are very pure) but an elixir guaranteed to enhance mind and body (as is all water)—then get a few bottles to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. If you’d like something more traditional-sounding, check out Tipperary Mineral Water.
