Saint-Élie's premiere water spring is from a vast ancient aquifer near the tiny Québec village of Saint-Élie-de-Caxton. Ideally situated beside a million square kilometres of Canada’s immense and virtually uninhabited wilderness, the source is naturally isolated.
Lying deep inside thick, impermeable layers of prehistoric clay, the spring is also naturally insulated from any possible surface drainage or run off. Exceptional geological and geographical factors have created the perfect environment for Saint-Élie's perfect water.
Tributary pools from the enormous surrounding area feed the main water source, locked in subterranean gathering shelves. Comprised of rock from the Precambrian Era, among the oldest on Earth at over 600 Million years, the crystalline shelves create a dense, natural filtration system. This unhurried 60 year process through mineral rich stone gives Saint-Élie water its incomparable purity and superior taste. Saint-Élie water’s in-ground temperature is 41°F which maintains its perfectly balanced mineral composition and creates its incredibly crisp structure.
