Cumbria’s Aqua Pura scoops innovation award
Cumbrian heritage brand, Aqua Pura, has won the Best Cap/Closure Technology Award at the 2021 Global Drinks Awards.
The Global Drinks Awards, overseen by Zenith, is organised by a network of specialist associates and researchers based throughout the world. Its expert judges selected the innovative cap produced here in Cumbria as the winner of the prestigious award.
As part of the win, which was announced in October 2021, Aqua Pura featured at an online awards ceremony during Zenith Global’s Global Water Drinks Congress to an audience of senior industry managers, suppliers, retailers, advisers and trade press – showcasing the product, brand and Cumbrian heritage.
Carys Delve, brand manager at Aqua Pura, said: “Our bottle is 100% recycled, and also 100% recyclable. The new ‘flip to open, snap to close’ cap means it can’t get lost in nature, while also ensuring it will be placed in the recycle waste with the bottle rather than discarded in a general waste bin.
“The work that’s gone into developing it by the whole team has been rewarded with this award win. It demonstrates that the important work we’ve undertaken surrounding sustainability and green technology is getting recognised – which is fantastic.
“Our water is filtered through the ancient, mineral-rich rocks of Cumbria – behind everything we do is nature. That’s why it’s important that our technology and local heritage has been rewarded.”
Aqua Pura is proud to support Help for Heroes, and, being based in the Eden Valley, it also supports Cumbria Tourism. It launched a new Sparkling water in summer 2021, which features a ‘twist, click and close’ integrated cap too.
