Kiwi Water New Zealand was established in 2006 by Daniel Wilson, whose aim is to provide premium water at an affordable price. The company’s primary market is offshore, but products can also be ordered within New Zealand.

Sourced from the worlds deepest New Zealand aquifers in the Central North Island, Kiwi Water is 100% free flowing artesian spring mineral water.

The Kiwi Water brand was designed to represent the qualities for which New Zealand is known around the world: its extraordinary kiwi bird and other native flora and fauna, lush and rugged landscapes, clear blue skies and pristine water supplies.

Daniel Wilson

Daniel Wilson is proud of his Tuhoe and Tainui heritage and passionate about the Urewera region of the North Island. His whanau (family) says this of their ancestory:

“There is a concept that is uniquely ours of Tuhoe, called ‘matemateaone’. It is up to the individual to interpret, but basically it encompasses all one could feel for one’s land, rivers, mountains and forests; we are one with all these things and we will fight to the death and beyond to protect them.

“We are the children of the mist; our ancestors, the mist maiden and Maunga, a mountain, came together in Ruatahuna and began Potiki, who began Nga Potiki, the first hapu, or sub tribes, who ultimately became you and me today.”

At the age of 17, Daniel went to Australia to pursue a boat building apprenticeship, and stayed for 13 years. During his time in such a hot dry climate, he learnt to appreciate the real value of a pure, affordable and uninterrupted water supply. He decided to return to his roots and harvest what New Zealanders take for granted and have in abundance, to benefit others who don’t have that luxury.

Blue Spring, New Zealand's biggest free flowing spring, is located at the foothills of the Mamaku Ranges in the Central North Island. Water from the Mamaku Plateau is stored in naturally occurring underground aquifers and takes 50-100 years to reach the earth's surface.

Nature’s perfection… pure taste

Our water is 100% free flowing artesian spring mineral water from New Zealand. Originating from rainwater stored deep below the earth’s surface and filtering through layers of rock, Kiwi Water truly is nature’s perfection – with great clarity and softness on the palate.

Blue Spring, New Zealand’s biggest free flowing artesian spring, is located at the foothills of the Mamaku Ranges in the Central North Island. Water from the Mamaku Plateau is stored in naturally occurring underground aquifers, or layers of water-bearing, permeable rock, and takes 50-100 years to reach the earth’s surface.

Protected from all elements in the aquifer, the water remains a constant 11ºC, and is released above ground into the spring feeding Te Waihou River at an astonishing 40,000L per minute. However, Kiwi Water is taken at a depth of six metres in the pooling area of the eight-metre deep spring, so the mineral water in our bottles never touches the air that you breathe until you crack the seal of the cap!

Blue water, is pure water

Pure water is blue because it absorbs red light leaving only blue, and some green light, to meet the eye. The water is also very clear because it lacks light-absorbing particles which, with other impurities, are efficiently removed during the long time that the spring water is stored in the aquifers.
As the water moves through the underground rocks and lava, it absorbs health-giving minerals. Kiwi Water is taken at the spring before it reaches the Te Waihou River, and contains absolutely no additives or preservatives.

Trusted testing & bottling

Kiwi Water undergoes minimal filtration before being bottled at source where we use industry best practice processes and procedures. Water undergoes testing and analysis by six different laboratories, independently audited to strict standards of compliance. This ensures the water is free from harmful bacteria and chemicals, and has optimum pH and mineral levels.

Typical water analysis

Calcium 2.3mg/L
Sodium 8.0mg/L
Potassium 4.2mg/L
Magnesium 1.5mg/L
Silica 76.8mg/L
Total dissolved solids 110mg/L
pH 6.6 - 7.2

Water Facts

We dispel the myths about your water needs

Kiwi Water doesn’t subscribe to the ‘eight glasses of water every day’ mantra – we tell the truth about your water needs.

Experts say:

  • Drink at least six to eight cups of liquid per day – that’s from water, tea, coffee, other drinks and food.
  • Drink enough to make you pee four or five times a day.
  • Don’t ignore your thirst, even if it’s only mild. And the elderly and young should drink water frequently, even if they are not thirsty.
  • We need water in larger amounts than we can make it from food – so we must drink it every day.
  • Water and oxygen are the two most essential materials for human life. Most people will die if they go for more than five days without water.
  • Water is 50–80% of our body weight, with the average adult male body containing about 40L water.
  • There is no sound proof that 8 glasses of water a day gives you healthier skin.
  • Drinking extra water doesn’t lead to weight loss, but if you drink it instead of sodas or juice or food – it may do.
  • Accessible, clean drinking water is vital to life!

Advantages of bottled spring water

  • It tastes delicious.
  • It is chemical and germ free.
  • It’s always cold and ready to go out with you.
  • It’s convenient to have in the car when you’re driving long distances.
  • You always have it on hand when kids are thirsty.
  • It is a far healthier choice when you are out and about than fizzy drinks or fruit juice.

Why do we need water?

Water is found in all our body tissues – three-quarters of the human brain is made up of water. Water is necessary for so many things, eg, lubricating joints, regulating body temperature, transporting dissolved molecules to parts of the body, getting rid of poisonous waste products.

How much water do we need?

Our digestive systems use about 12L of water every day and, even without exercising, we lose 3L a day through breathing, sweating, urine and faeces. We retain some water by reabsorbing it from the bowel. To keep functioning normally, we need a steady supply of water from the daily intake of food and drink. Men need about 3L of water (from all sources) per day and women, about 2.2L. Food gives us about IL of that, with about 0.3L coming from the water produced by the breakdown of food. The remainder needs to come from fluids, eg, water, milk, tea, coffee and other drinks.

What if I dont get enough water?

Dehydration sets in when a person has lost 2% of his or her body weight. So for a 100kg man, this means losing 2kg of water. Dehydration is caused by not getting enough fluids, or by losing too much fluid. Chronic, mild dehydration and poor fluid intake can increase your risk of:

  • kidney stones
  • urinary tract cancers
  • colon cancer
  • heart valve disorders
  • decreased physical and mental performance.

What causes chronic, mild dehydration?

Several things can cause this, including: not drinking enough water during the day, drinking a lot of caffeine and alcohol, environmental conditions and exercise. Young people and the elderly are more at risk from dehydration.

Water and exercise

If you exercise vigorously you should drink 250ml water before starting and then have 125ml every 15 minutes. This will prevent dehydration and improve your performance.

Help save the Kiwi

New Zealand’s national bird is in danger!

Kiwi Water is committed to helping save the kiwi from extinction. For every bottle of Kiwi Water sold, a percentage of profits is donated to a designated organisation that helps protect our precious Kiwi Bird.

You, too, can help save the kiwi and other New Zealand native animals and plants. Choose pure Kiwi Water, and donate directly to Forest and Bird on its website.

The Kiwi identity

Internationally it’s well recognised that New Zealanders are known as Kiwis – this nickname is derived not from the widely exported furry-skinned kiwifruit, but from our unique flightless, nocturnal bird.

Our identity as a nation is indelibly linked to the kiwi, denoting individuality and a humble strength of character – hence the name of our premium spring water company!

Maori named the bird kiwi, perhaps for its distinctive call, and treasure it as a creature of the forest floor as well as for its feathers, which adorn the cloaks of very important people. The kiwi has the special protection of Tane Mahuta – god of the forest.

Sadly, this hasn’t been enough to protect kiwi from introduced predators, and they are now our most endangered native bird. The range of the kiwi has been reduced by 20% in recent years due to predators like stoats and weasels.
