Let us take you back in history.
1850s, 1860s and the Hydropathy movement was in full swing in Scotland and further afield. The philosophy was to establish Hydropathy retreats for people to offer respite and relaxation space away from the busy Victorian city life and general every-day tasks and responsibilities. Clean Air and as the name suggests pure clean water were the main ingredients.
During this time, and close to Windy Hollow Spring in Trinity Gask, a Hydropathy Centre was established in Crieff, now called Crieff Hydro. Water from Windy Hollow Spring was taken over the hills and brought to this center for visitors to enjoy, drink and bath in.
Many references can be found about Windy Hollow Artesian Spring water, the British Medical Journal for example refers to it (then called Cowgask Spring) as a “wonderful water with many positive healing properties”.
It was also well covered in the local news with The Strathearn Herald covering the official opening ceremony of the Hydropathy Centre located then near Morrisons School and Crief Hydro. Guests included Dr Meikle the founder of Crieff Hydro. In the opening speech the Spring was referred to as a known source of ‘healing water for over a century’. The water had been analysed by the well-known chemist Dr Thomson then Professor of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow who stated that he believed the water to ‘possess most valuable qualities’.
Whereas we don’t make health claims on our water it is clear that fresh clean water from an historical source is a unique proposition and to be enjoyed.
The water is best served slightly chilled to around 4 degrees Celcius, the same temperature as it emerges from the ground here on our organic farm in Perthshire, Scotland.
Whether you are looking for a refreshing clean taste, or are looking for a perfect medium to taste high quality teas or whiskies, Windy Hollow Artesian Spring is ideal. Enjoy.
