the WILDE JOURNEY

Sir William, a pioneering doctor, historian, and archeologist, knew well the historical import of this, the most westerly part of Europe which had given birth and inspiration to many famous writers, among them Yeats, Goldsmith, Moore, Synge, and of course his own brilliant son, Oscar.

As daylight fades, the bronze and olive tones that tint the dark rich soil and limestone outcroppings become long streaks of crimson, green, and orange in the mild Tipperary twilight, beneath which joyous landscape a thousand subterraneous rivers run through fissures in the age-old limestone rock; rising in the interior of caverns, vast pools bubble up, cool, clear, pure water oozes through the crevices of stones and follows nature’s time worn paths in search of lower climes.

Oblivious to the seasons,
unmindful of the rhythmic movement of the age,
there still remains, unchanged,
the inherent nature of the ancient land
and the cold,
clear water…

Perfected by nature deep beneath the hills in the very heart of Ireland, Oscar Wilde Water is slow filtered for over a thousand years through volcanic strata and limestone beds before rising up in artesian wells as a natural mineral water of exceptional purity and composition.

“This is an exquisite water”

distinctive TASTES

Tonic water (or Indian tonic water) is a carbonated soft drink in which quinine is dissolved. Originally used as a prophylactic against malaria, tonic water usually now has a significantly lower quinine content and is consumed for its distinctive bitter flavor. It is often used in mixed drinks, particularly in gin and tonic. The quinine was added to the drink as a prophylactic against malaria, since it was originally intended for consumption in tropical areas of South Asia and Africa, where the disease is endemic. Quinine power was so bitter that British officials stationed in the early 19th Century India and other tropic posts began mixing the power with soda and sugar, and a basic tonic water was created. The first commercial tonic water was produced in 1858. The mixed drink gin and tonic also originated in British colonial India, when the British population would mix their medicinal quinine tonic with gin.
Our tonic flavors are carefully selected to embody a light and subtle character; the delicate and sweet flavor of these locally sourced flowers, berries, and fruits are perfectly balanced by the soft bitterness of the quinine. Providing a summery to the classic gin and tonic, each refreshingly exquisite tonic works equally well as a sophisticated soft drink.

soda WATERS

Carbonated water was invented by Joseph Priestly in 1767 when he discovered a method of infusing water with carbon dioxide after suspending a bowl of water above a beer vat at a brewery in Leeds, England. He wrote of the “peculiar satisfaction” he found in drinking it, and in 1772 he published a paper entitled Impregnating Water with Fixed Air.
