Highland Spring is a Scottish supplier of bottled water. It produces still and sparkling water at its factory in Blackford, Perth and Kinross, although despite the name this area is not actually within the Scottish Highlands. Highland Spring was the highest-selling sparkling water in the UK in 2008[citation needed] and consolidated its 1st place position in the UK still water market[citation needed].

The company has expanded through organic growth and also by acquisition, taking over the Gleneagles Spring Water Company, also based in Blackford, in 2001, the Speyside Glenlivet Water Company, based in Ballindalloch in 2009, and acquiring Campsie Spring (Glasgow) from Greencore in 2010.

Joe Beeston (1947-2008) was the company's Chief Executive since 1992 until his death.[1] The company is currently owned by billionaire UAE businessman Mahdi Al Tajir.[2]
