Our Story

Nestled at the foothills of Shutlinsloe, known as the ‘Matterhorn of Cheshire’ in the rural village of Wildboarclough in the Peak District lies a country Inn called ‘The Crag’.  


The Crag Inn was bought by Doran, Melissa and their 5 young children in June 2016, unbeknown to the family within the grounds of the pub there was a natural spring water supply. Water analysis and testing proved that the water was so pure (almost free from nitrates and sodium) that it was classed as premium grade spring water. The family decided that the water should be bottled and enjoyed, so a small bottling plant was set up within an unused building on site at the pub.

Environmentally Aware

The main aim of the venture was to produce a product that was environmentally friendly.  16 million plastic water bottles are thrown away each day in the UK, so it was decided that Crag Spring Water should be bottled in glass bottles only. This in turn led to the thought that the bottles should also be reused. It seems strange that we throw away or at best recycle glass bottles for them to become glass bottles again. Research showed that there was no other water bottling companies in the North of England that reuses its bottles. The aim of the company was to deliver Crag Spring Water to pubs, restaurants, small business and to the individual consumer but to also collect the empty bottles, to wash, sanitise and then refill them.  This would mean that our carbon footprint was significantly reduced whilst also supplying a premium product. We can’t change the past but we can change our future.
