When you drink water, always think of the source.
Treboy Spring. Fine Water
Kure Oxygen is sourced from Treboy Spring a privately owned artesian spring located on a 135-acre farmland estate in Cornwall, England. Thoughtful care is taken with the land, ensuring it remains free from pesticides and pollutants resulting in pristine spring water naturally enriched with minerals and electrolytes – the perfect base from which to create Kure.
During the bottling process at our state-of-the-art facility; the water undergoes a four stage (absolute) filtration process before being supercharged with pure oxygen through proprietary ultra fine oxygen bubble technology.
Certified Water Sommelier. Matt Thornton
Matt Thornton is a Certied Water Sommelier having graduated as top of the class from Doemans, Munich. An aviator of over 35 years has graced the skies and observed water all over around the globe monitoring its dynamic movement and rhythms. Trained also by the late Dr Emoto is well versed in some of water's most unusual properties and is recognised internationally as a speaker on water related issues discussing such diversity as water science and technologies to art and consciousness. He is dedicated to creating a water conscious generation that has deeper connection and understanding to water's true nature.
The water forming process is a constant process, and to understand all the formative aspects is to fully understand the water where we can highlight the uniqueness of its entire journey through to the emergence at the spring and enhance the subsequent experience. The geographical and meteorological factors are major influences.
Rain, and other precipitation is reputed to be the ‘main’ source origin of all waters which is the supply chain for all ground sources in some way. Having the rain travel over a clean land or waterscape is imperative for the quality of the rain that falls as it will collect particles and chemicals in its pathway.
Rainfall is caused by the condensation of the water in air that is being lifted and cooled below its dew point. Humidity, altitude, exposure are all factors all determine the amount of rain and the quality of the water. With sea temperature being a driving factor on humidity, being exposed at altitude and because our water is from coastal provides for a dynamic and complex formation of rain.
Water is a natural product that expresses its own character and terroir. The character of our water is built by its flow through the geology, rock strata and vegetation. The overall character is determined by the entire flow of its true source to the end of the formation zone with the accumulation of minerals and trace elements that it is in contact with. This unique composition through the geological strata, the influence of the local earth, the characteristics of the source gives it a distinct terroir which is then expressed through our water on its flavour.
Water is very complex and its impact is not seasonal but over the lifespan of the source which could be millions of years. The geology will give us these clues. We look at the birth of the water, the formation, the nature around it, the birth of the mountains, the forests, climate including changes and how it will affect the local climatology. Rocks are not stationary, they move through what's known as the rock cycle so the characteristics could only be there in a moment in time. Hence we investigate the stone, the rock, minerals, pressure and the climate and the time which all contribute to the terroir. In 10 years time, the character could well change.
The sea which surrounds our area on three sides has the highest annual mean temperature of any sea area near to the UK, close to 11 to 12 °C. With winds mainly blowing from the sea the annual mean temperatures are also close to 11 to 12 °C in coastal areas of Cornwall. Due to the modifying effect of the sea the seasonal and diurnal temperature variation is less than in most other parts of the UK.
The permanent rain bearing clouds are the always- producing Nimbostratus, steady and continuous, arriving surreptitiously. Formed by the thickening and lowering of altostratus, with an undefined point of distinction between alto and nimbo. The atmosphere below a precipitating cloud can become very humid, due to the moisture falling through it, and only slight rise in gust can cool the air for the moisture to condense into tiny droplets forming wisps of thin cloud at the base, darker ragged patches of stratus fractus, also known as pannus give warning to imminent rains. This is like a blanket cloud of endless rain.
The air humidity is a driving factor determining rainfall and the sea temperature largely controls this. The sea temperature o South West England is at its maximum in late summer and autumn and is coolest in late winter and spring. As a result rainfall tends to be highest in autumn and lowest in spring giving a seasonal variation.
