Celtic Pure, the Irish natural spring water company, was recently presented with a Gold Medal and a Silver Medal for Excellence for its still and sparkling water products at the recent British Bottlers’ Institute Awards ceremony, held at The Vintners’ Hall in London.

Celtic Pure’s Irish Spring Water won the Gold Medal in the Spring Water – Still category and the Silver Medal in the Spring Water – Sparkling category of the 2014 competition. The achievement increases Celtic Pure’s tally of Medals for Excellence awarded by the British Bottlers’ Institute to six.

Established by Padraig and Pauline McEneaney in 2000, Celtic Pure has emerged as one of the leading bottled water companies in Ireland and the UK. The business currently employs 40 people and has a turnover approaching Eur7 million.

Celtic Pure is one of Ireland’s finest natural spring waters sourced from beneath the ancient Ulster Drumlin hills of County Monaghan. The water is taken from an ancient spring 300 metres below natural filtration beds of limestone rock. Indeed, the water from the spring has been used by the McEneaney family for well over 200 years.

The award-winning water is bottled at source, close to the original family spring, in a 40,000 sq ft state-of-the-art production plant. About 60% of output is packaged under the company’s Celtic Pure brand while the balance is in customer own brand format.

Celtic Pure offers a complete range of bottled and other commercial water products to the retail and wholesale channels to satisfy all tastes for the work, home and play markets. A full array of packaging formats are provided from Celtic Pure’s plastic bottled water range and custom packaged water to its water cooler drum range.

To meet growing demand for its products, Celtic Pure is in the process of doubling its current filling capacity to 18,000 bottles per hour through a Eur2.5 million investment programme, which will allow the company to produce 80-100 million bottles a year.
