Artesian water comes from an artesian aquifer, which is a
special kind of confined, underground aquifer that creates an
upward flow of water to the surface.
This natural phenomenon occurs when groundwater seeps into a
layer of porous stone, such as sandstone or limestone, sandwiched
between impermeable layers of stone and clay. The water
becomes trapped in the porous stone, and the pressure is great
enough that, when tapped with a well, it naturally rises to ground
level without pumping.
Ayala's artesian well
All of Ayala's Herbal Water blends are made with artesian water
from an artesian well in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia.
Since our well is naturally pressurized, we do not waste energy
pumping, and this helps us maintain an even more environmentally
sustainable business operation.
After our water arrives at the surface, it undergoes a
multi-stage purification process, which includes exposure to
ultra-violet light and reverse osmosis. The result is crisp,
clean tasting, and pure water primed for our delicious blends of organic culinary
