In a recent independent study, Brecon Carreg was revealed as the No.1 best selling bottled water brand in the whole of Wales. Obviously we all think in the Brecon Carreg team that our pure and natural bottled mineral water is the best in Wales by a long way, but it’s nice to have this view officially confirmed by our customers and consumers.
Our purity is very popular
So what’s made us so popular? Well, we reckon that the sheer purity of our water plays a big part in it. It begins as rain falling on the hills and valleys of the Brecon Beacons, then streams, filters and flows through layer after layer of dense limestone strata and other ancient rocks for many, many years. Not surprisingly, during the course of this long and colourful excursion, the water gains traces of lots of different minerals, which are present in the various rocks it is travelling through on its journey to the surface. The minerals acquired in this way, are what gives our bottled mineral water its unique natural taste and make-up. A taste that’s obviously a big hit with thousands of people.
In a different study, Brecon Carreg also came out clear winner as the most ‘preferred’ bottled water brand in Wales too. So it seems that it’s both the most bought and the most liked as well. Which is not bad going at all for a relatively small brand from a traditional background in such a large and competitive market.
Heart, soul and passion
To be honest though, Brecon Carreg’s ‘smallness’ is also maybe a key factor in our success. There are just 29 of us based at our headquarters cottage in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, but every single one of us puts our heart, soul and passion into bottling this high quality mineral water.
We’re just as passionate about our roots and our ‘Welshness’ too, which is why we’re always active in supporting local events, both big and small. For instance, we’re proud sponsors of the Newport Gwent Dragons Rugby Union team and also sponsored the Cardiff Half Marathon, in which we gave a bottle of Brecon Carreg to every runner who crossed the finish line.
Lowest sodium content in the UK
Another factor in our success and popularity is that the excellent balance of minerals in our water also gives it a reassuringly low sodium content. In fact our water has the lowest sodium content of all major UK mineral water brands, which means if you’re concerned about too much salt in your diet then this is the mineral water for you.
But whatever the reasons are for choosing Brecon Carreg bottled mineral water, there certainly must be plenty of them, judging by the fact that we’re the best selling and most preferred bottled water brand in Wales.
