Highfield Drinks Group is a family run company. Located outside the historic market town of Melbourne in Derbyshire.
Our Spring Water journey started back in 2003. We decided to get a borehole that we knew existed tested...
This started the incredible quest of how to get the spring water from 220ft underground and into bottles, that we also produce too, on the same site that our water source is on.
This land has been in our family for over 100 years. During this time we have seen the land develop into a market gardening business and consequently into the spring water plant that it is today.
We started producing bottled spring water over 15 years ago. In 2019 we rebranded as Highfield Drinks group. We rebranded because we want to look at innovative ways of utilising our water in the soft drink industry.
Our business has diversified from growing and selling vegetables to bottling spring water. Above all, we are still drawing resources from the land we have lived on since 1912.
From the of Melbourne
Melbourne's name originally means ‘the mill on the brook’. Through history, the region was renowned for its refreshing springs and brooks. Therefore, the cool, clear water was used in brewing and also for watering neighbouring market gardens.
