Svalbarði | The Water Straight from Arctic Icebergs
Sourced from the purest icebergs in Kongsfjorden, just 1,000km from the North Pole at 79° north, Svalbarði polar water is believed to be the purest and best tasting in the world.
The product is as unique as the story of its formation: in 2013, Norwegian-American Jamal Qureshi collected meltwater as a gift for his wife while travelling in the Norwegian island territory of Svalbard – one of Europe’s last great wildernesses. Four years later, Qureshi transformed his thought into an epicurean product, which is redefining the very notion of pure drinking water. Expeditions are made to collect the ice with each journey yielding around 13,000 bottles of pure drinking water, thus making each batch highly limited and exclusive. Each bottle comes packaged in a bespoke gift tube presented in an exquisite flint glass bottle paired with a sustainable wooden cap; making it the perfect gift or a complementary pairing to fine dining.
Svalbarði's headquarters is based in the Arctic outpost of Longyearbyen – an important centre for global warming research. The brand has a strong ethos in raising awareness for polar and climate research, operating sustainably for the conservation of the Arctic environment, being a environmentally friendly company.
"Svalbarði began with a dream to explore the Arctic. When I visited Svalbard for the first time I discovered the ice was exceptionally clean, with a delightful taste. As a gift for my wife, I gathered a little water and brought it home to make a cup of her favourite herbal tea. This set in motion the chain of events which created Svalbarði. My dream to visit Svalbard has become a passion to share it. I know few will ever be able to visit, but with Svalbarði people can taste the best drinking water from the ice at the top of the world."
