We bottled the purest of the Patagonia Rainforest
The origin of Mawün lies offshore, hundreds of kilometres away from the Chilean coast, under the purest and cleanest conditions of nature. It starts when the temperature of the Pacific Ocean rises and gets warm, thus breaking the weak links of oxygen in the water. These very light molecules evaporate and rise, meeting masses of cold air, which turn them back into small drops of water that, eventually, become clouds.
Now the wind starts to play its role in bringing the drops to the continent and making them travel the 30 kilometers that separate the ocean from the nature sanctuary “Carlos Anwandter”, where Mawün’s plant is located.
During this trip, the initially small drops of water gather slowly, until they can no longer float because of their weight and fall to the ground as rain.
The rain is “harvested” on polycarbonate roofs, which were specially designed to keep the composition and organoleptic conditions of the water intact. The collection system, which is located in a pollution-free, preserved environment, gathers the water on stainless steel gutters, pumps it along the slope and deposits it in the tanks of the bottling plant, only 20 meters further.
After going through a series of mechanical and bacteriological filtering equipment, in charge of keeping the physical and cellular particles without adding any additional elements, the rain water is immediately bottled in origin. Through a scheduled collection based on controlled production batches, Mawün guarantees a brief bottling lead time, allowing for a pure, fresh, high rotation product, which complies with the highest quality standards.
The concept “terroir” (commonly used in wines) refers to a hint of “earth” in beverages and to the influence of “local soils” when tasting a product. Since Mawün is collected before coming into contact with the ground, it stays free of elements that might alter its taste, which makes it a water of extreme purity.
The TDS or totally dissolved solids, define the smoothness or heaviness of water. They measure the amount of dissolved minerals it contains, usually incorporated after touching the ground. Mawün’s TDS is labelled as extra-low, thus having a fresh, clean and less heavy taste. (When compared with wines, we might say that it is like a good white wine).
The ph of water measures its acidity or alkalinity. With its ph of 6.5, Mawün is labelled as neutral-basic, in other words: it is neither bitter nor sweet.
Mawün’s age is very short. The time span from genesis to bottling ranges from days to a week, at the most, as opposed to “ancient” waters with ages up to hundreds of years.
The virginity shows how protected the water is at the place where it is obtained. At the same time, it refers to the levels of nitrate it contains. Nitrate is easily transported by water in the ground. It is liable to infiltrate due to heavy rainfall or watering in agricultural areas and, as a consequence, pollute the groundwater from where it is extracted. Therefore, Mawün is nitrate free and of a superior level of virginity because it is captured before touching the ground, avoiding contact with nitrates.
Mawün Water contains 11.5 mg/l of dissolved oxygen, twice the average, since as rain water it is directly in contact with more oxygen molecules, compared to “motionless” sources.
It qualifies as sodium free with its content of 1.05 mg/l.
Transparent, fresh and brilliant water. Very clean nose, aroma almost imperceptible. On the palate: light, fresh and friendly. Moves very softly, leaving a very nice, final sweetness. It is a type of water with low persistence in the mouth.
Mawün, is the result of an extraordinary innovation from Chile show a unique product in the world, based in a wonderful setting.
