Sustainably Sourced from the Carribean Waters of Aruba.
Sustainably Sourced from the Caribbean Waters of Aruba.
As our planet’s drinking water sources continue to be depleted, there is a real and compelling need to find ways to develop sources of pure water that are balanced and sustainable.
ArubaWater™ is a new pure bottled water born out of the need for an alternative to conventional spring water and aquifers –one that meets the requirements for sustainable drinking water without compromising on purity and taste.
Our pure water is sourced completely from the oceans surrounding the island of Aruba in the Caribbean. Drawn from the depths that flow through coral beds, ArubaWater™ contains only ocean water that has been desalinated for optimum pH levels, mineral content, and great taste.
Aruba is renowned for producing some of the most highly rated water available on the planet and now consumers can taste for themselves why we call it Paradise in a Bottle™.
The tiny Caribbean Island of Aruba has been at the forefront of desalination since the early 1900s, and at one point was the largest producer of desalinated water in the world.
That tradition has continued right up to today, as the technology applied to providing a freshwater source for the island’s population has blossomed into some of the most highly rated water found anywhere in the world.
In fact, Aruba’s water has been consistently shown to exceed the World Health Organization’s guidelines for purity applied to drinking water.
ArubaWater Corp is based in Scottsdale, Arizona with bottling and packaging operations located in Oranjestad on the Island of Aruba.
ArubaWater Corp was founded by a group of world-class beverage industry management and advisors.
