A Unique Source
Finland is a land of water, forests, and wilderness. Although the country has close to 200 000 lakes and innumerable rivers and springs, it only has one natural mineral-water fountain, which is the Vellamo fountain in the little village of Viikinäinen. The fountain was discovered as late as 1990, and its geological survey disclosed an amazing fact: the water’s origins from melted Ice Age glaciers, from prehistoric times, when the world population was smaller than that of modern-day New York. Because the water’s molecules had not been in touch with anything above the ground for thousands of years, the water has a safe bacterial colony count of 0.
A Thick Ridge Filters the Spring Water
At the same time as the Ice Age melting water was filtered through granite, forming a perfect natural mineral water, those glacial meltwaters transported, sorted, and deposited the sand and gravel that formed the famous Salpausselkä Ridges: the home of the Vellamo spring-water well. The Ridges’ thick, clean layers of sand and moraine gravel ensure an exceptionally pure natural filtration system, which explains Vellamo Spring Water’s extremely fresh taste.
