Midas Spring Water has flowed from its deep subterranean recesses for countless centuries and has the distinction of being the oldest company in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.
Having provided continuous service since its founding in 1871, it is also recognized as one of the first bottled water companies in the continental United States.
Midas Spring Water
Famous Health-giving & Refreshing Mineral Water
“In use since 1867, Midas Mineral Spring Water is a famous health-giving and refreshing natural mineral water. It is odorless, and free to use daily. Its high content of magnesium and calcium, as well as its mild alkalinity promote the proper assimilation of food into the rich red blood characteristics of good health and energy. The natural mineral elements found in this wholesome and natural table water are the same medicinal agents widely prescribed by physicians for body-building and vital energy… In a constantly changing world, the natural purity of Midas Water has remained the same, through all the centuries it has come out of the rich subterranean recesses of North Carolina, Midas Water flows from this age-old mineral spring into the bottling reservoir and is bottled for quick delivery the same day.”
-New York Health Commissioner Royal S. Copeland, M.D. 1923
The Midas spring and facility are located on the outskirts of Huntersville, North Carolina. Here the spring is protected from development by a county watershed protection program and its adjacent neighbor the Latta Plantation nature reserve.
The Latta plantation is Mecklenburg County's largest nature reserve protecting over 1300 acres of natural communities and home to the Piedmont prairie restoration site conserving the federally endangered Scheinitz's sunflower.
At this beautiful location the original Midas spring remains enclosed in a spring house that was handcrafted during the Great Depression. The newer manufacturing facility was once the location of a Naturopathic practitioners office, who took advantage of the spring’s restorative properties.
Visitors on the property have been known to find old bottles from the facility’s varied history.
Proudly Publishing Full Chemistry Since The Beginning
Since the begining, Midas Spring Water™ contains nature’s perfect balance of dissolved minerals and mild alkalinity for a premium water in every bottle. Its naturally occurring calcium and magnesium is readily absorbed by the body for stronger bones, improved metabolism, diuretic properties and improved cardiovascular functions, while its ultra low nitrate content makes it ideal for use by mothers and their infants. Local school children drinking Midas were observed to have improved concentration and have less reliance on on medications such as Ritalin.
Unlike other bottled waters, Midas publishes the full chemistry of their spring water because they believe you should know what you are drinking and more importantly, how it affects your health. Commercially processed demineralized waters should be avoided at all costs, and where necessary filtered tap water is a better alternative.
The historical 1903 Midas label is a testament to the purity and consistency of its key ingredients, calcium, magnesium and silica (salicylic acid), in promoting health and long life.
Good Things Never Change
Midas Spring Water is still regularly inspected by the Food and Drug Administration and is tested daily. In addition, water samples are sent twice a year to National Testing Labs to extensively analyze all particular chemical elements in the water.
In the beginning, Midas was one of the few companies engaged in home and office delivery and continues to do so today. The painting by Kenneth Witsett of Midas water delivery at Charlotte N.C Independence Square, portrays the historical importance of drinking the healthiest of waters.
The Legend of Midas Spring Water
Legend has it, Catawba Indians discovered the ageless spring during their annual migration west. They had left behind a brave who had become too ill to continue the journey and when they returned, found him to be in restored health. The brave had been drinking the water of the Midas Spring, and its naturally pure elements had helped him regain his health and vitality.
As the legend continues, one of the most notable testimonials came from Mrs. Abernathy, Charlotte’s then oldest citizen at 105, in an article in the Charlotte Observer where she attributed her longevity in part to drinking Midas Spring Water.
