About Highfield Drinks Group

We are a family run business, based just outside the historic town of Melbourne in South Derbyshire.

Our family moved into Highfields over 100 years ago. We have seen the farm and land change over time, first into a market gardening business.

Nowadays the land is home to our spring water plant...

The Highfield Drinks Group journey started in 2003. Our Managing Director, David Smith, got a borehole that he knew was in existence tested. This then started the incredible quest of how to get the water from 220ft underground and into bottles.

Brand Development

Since the first bottle was produced over 15 years ago, we have now created a new brand in the Highfield Drinks Group. Our aim is to come up with new and initiative ways of utilising spring water in the soft drink industry.

The family business has diversified from growing and selling vegetables to bottling spring water. The bottom line, however, is that we are still drawing resources from the land that has been in our family since 1912.
