WHAT IS ARTESIAN WATER?
A well drilled through a "confining layer" such as clay, which due to hydraulic head pressures rise up the well casing with great pressure to an elevation at the static level of the tapped confined aquifer. The natural filtration of the confining beds provide a protective shield from potential contamination. Artesian water is of superior quality to other forms of water. Virginia’s Best is tapped into a confined aquifer over 400 feet below the earth’s surface. An abundant supply of artesian water that flows through a completely sealed delivery system, free of human contact, and is never exposed to the environment.
ARTESIAN WATER HISTORY
“Artesian” comes from the name of the town of Artois, France (which was called Artesium by the Romans). During the Middle Ages, the artesian wells drilled here were well known. The first artesian well in Europe was dug in 1126 by Carthusian monks (i.e., of the Chartreuse order) at their convent in Lillers. It was drilled not by a rotating drill, but by pounding the drill down in to force a hole that was just a few inches wide. The Chinese, though, were making artesian wells hundreds of years B.C.
THE PERFECT WATER
Artesian water is fortified with natural minerals (iron, calcium, magnesium, and fluoride) that are not found in any other types of harvested water.

You might think that all bottled water is the same, but Virginia's Best is pure and natural. We pass all government standards of bottled water before any extra filtering, uv, or ozonating is done. Our water is emerged from deep beneath the surface of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Our water is first cleansed by nature and is then micro-filtered, UV filtered and ozonated. It is a natural source of calcium, with trace minerals of iron and potassium, bottled at the source. These minerals are very important to maintain good health!

Can I put a photo on the label? What is the size of the label?
Yes, you can put any color picture on the label. The labels are 2 ½ inches wide by 7 ¼ inches long.
How many labels do I have to buy?
There is no extra labels required to buy & you can also change the label graphics at no charge.
Can I put my own logo or graphics on the label?
Yes. You may e-mail any of your graphics or logos to your sales representative in any of the following file formats: BMP, PLX, TIF, or JPEG. Your graphic will be of best quality if it is in a TIF or BMP file format. We also prefer that the graphic be 600 DPI as it produces a much clearer picture.
