Tipperary Natural Mineral Water is an Irish brand of mineral water coming from a source at Annerville, Clonmel, County Tipperary, Ireland. Tipperary Water is part of C&C Group, an Irish-owned multinational company. [2]



Tipperary Natural Mineral Water Company was founded in 1986 by Nicholas and Patrick Cooney. [3] [4] The water is pumped from a depth of 100 metres. In 1987, Tipperary Natural Mineral Water was the first Irish bottled water to qualify for the European Union's Natural Mineral Water status. In 2012, C&C Group acquired Gleeson Group for €12.4m. In 2016, seeking to cut costs C&C closed the water-bottling plant in Borrisoleigh which employed 140 staff. Production was moved to Clonmel County Tipperary. [5]

In 2019 the former Borrisoleigh water-bottling plant was sold to Oscar Wilde Water, a company owned by entrepreneur John Hegarty.
