Pure, Like The Snow That Gave It Life.
These alpine glaciers were formed as a result of snow falling down from the mountains. When snow accumulates, it turns to ice. In the winter months, the glaciers accumulate more snow than they lose during the summer.
Each year, new layers fall upon the existing layers, and the glacier takes shape. Just as they are formed, these massive glaciers melt in warmer months or in windy conditions.
Therefore, it’s easy to understand how glacier ice contains the purest form of water to be found anywhere on Earth. This meltwater has been an important source of fresh water for the nature that surrounds the area.
The evaporation process of the ice is known as ablation.
Glacier water is collected after the ice has melted naturally – not through any artificial melting process. Through its many layers, glacier ice can be up to 10,000 years old or more. Tiny air bubbles that were trapped in the ice for centuries have captured the pure taste of years gone by.
Some countries, such as Iceland and Peru, rely on glacial meltwater for drinking and food production. Is it any wonder that the life expectancy in Iceland is higher than anywhere else in the world?
