Brecon Carreg is a brand of Welsh mineral water[1] distributed across the United Kingdom. The water is sourced from the Brecon Beacons National Park. Brecon Beacons Natural Waters (its previous owner) started in 1978 as a cottage industry, in converted barns on Lwyndewi Farm. In 1983 the Spadel Group acquired the company and started expanding the business into a major commercial operation.

In 2011 Jean-Bertrand de Lartigue became chairman, replacing Professor Brian Morgan.[2]
