The Character of Uisge Source Waters

Islay’s Ardilistry Spring produces water with higher natural acidity which is created by filtration through peat.

 

St Colman’s Well in the Highland region produces a hard water, high in minerals due to filtration through porous and brittle red sandstone and limestone.

 

The Cairngorms Well in the Speyside region produces a soft water, low in minerals as a result of being filtered through hard rock such as granite.

 

The diagram opposite reveals how Uisge Source waters are different by comparing the mineral content, PH (the extent to which the water is more acidic or more alkaline), conductivity, and total hardness score.
