A STORY AS OLD AS THE MOUNTAINS

Our story starts where our spring water comes from: the mountains. From there we deliver our bottled water to your doorstep or corner store.

A MAN, A MOUNTAIN, AND A MARK

That’s the short version of our story. The long version starts with a man named David Smith and a mountain with a natural mark of an arrowhead. The springs not too far from that mark were the first source of Arrowhead® Mountain Spring Water — it’s also where we got our name.

FULL STREAM AHEAD

How did Arrowhead® spring water make it down the San Bernardino Mountains to people in California? Water trains, of course (similar to the modern day water truck). Operations were established in Los Angeles to be closer to our neighbors about this time

WATER FINDS NEW WHEELS

Trains were replaced with trucks in order to better deliver bottled water to homes, offices, stores and anywhere else thirst called. Reaching more corners than ever before, we became an integral part of our surrounding communities.

THE STORY CONTINUES

A lot of things have changed since our humble beginnings as a spring water company — like cars, television and the internet — but our values haven’t. We’re still providing fresh-tasting, natural spring water only from mountain springs (we’ve just added some springs in California, Colorado and Canada). And we're here to make sure they keep on keepin' on — just the way they have for years.
