Byrne Offutt - Mountain Valley Waters
Every drop of Mountain Valley water comes from a single, natural spring source that originates deep within the earth's surface. The spring is located within 2,000 acres of protected land approximately 12 miles from Hot Springs National Park Arkansas. We bottle Mountain Valley at the spring site. The first known owner of the property containing the Mountain Valley spring was Benjamin Lockett. Mr. Lockett and his son Enoch sold some of the water locally around Hot Springs until it became known as “Lockett's Spring Water.” Dr. Peter Greene, an Arkansas pharmacist, began to market the water and then changed its name to “Mountain Valley” (after the name of the nearby small community) in 1871. Dr. Greene purchased the land in 1872, began to improve the spring site, and gave Mountain Valley its start.
