Bottled Water Directly Sourced from Nature

THIRSTI is the home of the most extraordinary, naturally mineral-rich bottled water in South Africa.
Sourced exclusively from an amazing natural spring tucked away in the foothills of the Klein Drakensberg, THIRSTI bottled water isn’t just refreshingly delicious; it’s a taste that has been refined by nature over time!

We’ve ensured that by bottling our natural spring water at the source, we are capturing water that not only quenches your thirst, but is naturally pure too.

THIRSTI is all about bottling the goodness and the taste that nature intended for you to enjoy.

THIRSTI is proud to be a part of SANBWA, the South African Bottled Water Association, which reflects our extremely stringent safety and quality measures that are in place in our factory. The safety of our employees and our customers will always be of the utmost importance to us!


Natural Spring Water

THIRSTI Water quenches thirst like nothing else can. Our natural spring water is sourced from deep within the Klein Drakensberg, and then filtered in our state-of-the-art bottling factory, to ensure that only the best quality water is delivered to you.

Our water has a pH level of 8.9 and it is high in naturally occurring minerals which are important for health. This is unlike Reverse Osmosis (RO) water which involves a process used by many other bottlers which strips the water of all its minerals.

THIRSTI is truly water with a difference. Why would you want to drink anything else!

Taste the

THIRSTI difference

The bottled water industry has grown exponentially in South Africa in recent years. You see, the municipal water in our country is not always of a very high drinking standard and, in certain locations, it is just not an option to drink tap water from a bulk water supply.

As South Africans, we have also become better informed regarding water quality over the years, and this has also contributed to the move toward bottled water.

But not all bottled water is created equally! At THIRSTI, we pride ourselves in bottling water with a naturally high pH level, and a large amount of naturally occurring minerals. Be sure to compare labels the next time you buy bottled water; we’re certain that THIRSTI will come out on top!

We answer your

Frequently asked questions

We’re answering some of your most asked questions.

What is the best pH level for drinking water?

While anywhere between 6.5 and 8.5 on the pH scale is considered good, THIRSTI Water has a pH level of 8.9! This is why THIRSTI’s Natural Spring Water is the best option when choosing bottled water.

What is a good pH level for alkaline water?

pH levels are measured on a scale of 0-14, where 7 is neutral, <7 are acidic, and the >7 are alkaline. Most alkaline waters have a pH of 8 or 9. THIRSTI’S Natural Spring Water is at pH 8.9.

Can I use bottled water instead of distilled?

We would recommend using bottled water instead of distilled water. THIRSTI water is filtered to remove contaminants, but it retains the minerals which are good for your health! Distilled water is a type of purified water that removes contaminants but unfortunately removes the much-needed minerals as well.

How long does bottled water last after opened?

Once opened, water will remain at the best quality for 2 to 3 days. That being said, if you were to leave it for the week in the fridge, you will still be able to drink it. But with the delicious taste of our Natural Spring Water, we’re sure you’ll be eager to finish it ASAP!

How long can I store bottled water?

If the bottle is unopened, it can technically be stored for two years. At THIRSTI, we make the Best Before date to read one year after the day the water was bottled.

What bottle sizes can I get my THIRSTI water in?

You can get THIRSTI still water in 330 ml, 500 ml, 750 ml, 1.5 L and 5 L bottles and sparkling water in 500 ml and 1.5 L bottles.
