ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
On the labelUntouched & unprocessed. Taste of pristine Himalayan water. Wellness of organic minerals. It was born in the Sivalik range of the Himalayas. In a place most of you visit only in an atlas. In a time that wasn't measured by cuckoos that sprang out of clocks. In a silence that was sometimes punctuated by howling winds and gushing streams. In a world that had nothing to do with yours. Seems like reason enough to be here. Live Natural. Zero Calorie Drink. Bottled at source by Mount Everest Mineral Water Ltd.
