Tipperary Natural Mineral Water is an Irish brand of mineral water coming from a single source at Borrisoleigh, close to the Devil's Bit mountain in north County Tipperary, Ireland.[citation needed] Tipperary Water is part of Gleeson Group, an Irish-owned multinational company.[2]

History[edit]

Tipperary Natural Mineral Water Company was founded in 1986 by Nicholas and Patrick Cooney.[3] The water is pumped from a depth of 100 metres. In 1987, Tipperary Natural Mineral Water was the first Irish bottled water to qualify for the European Union's Natural Mineral Water status. It is now exported to 12 markets and has won the British Bottlers Institute gold medal award a number of times.[citation needed] It has 15% market share in Ireland.[3]
