Natural Mineral Water sourced from the rare cloud forests of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is home to a trifecta of unique water lilies. In Sinhala, these variants are called Olu (white), Nil Manel (magenta) and Nelum (pink & white) Each of these water lilies have symbolic roots deep in the island’s history, religion, and culture. For instance, the emergence of this beautiful flower in pristine condition from the murkiest of waters has oft been captured in ancient art and literature as a symbolic representation of the power of life and purity triumphing over corruption. Each lily also represents a unique trait of divinity – our eponymous Olu, for example, represents being awakened to the pristine wonders of nature.
Olu Tropical Water comes to life in Sri Lanka’s extremely rare cloud forests, nestled in the lush mountainous tropics of the island’s central highlands. Across the world, cloud forests account for just 1% of the Earth’s woodland, making Sri Lanka one of the very few countries that is home to these precious forests. A cloud forest also known as an “elfin forest” or “water forest”, is a tropical or subtropical forest characterized by a persistent low-level cloud cover, usually at the canopy level. As you’d imagine, rays of sunlight struggle to pierce this thick blanket of clouds, which causes a slower evaporation rate and provides the forest with a bounty of life-giving moisture. This rich, flourishing environment plays host to a myriad of unique ecosystems and endemic species.
The genesis of Olu water begins 4300 feet above sea level in the montane cloud forests of the Nuwara Eliya district. Within these cloud forests, much of the moisture available to plants arrives in the form of fog drip, where fog condenses on tree leaves and then drips onto the ground below. Absorbed by the earth, this pristine water makes its way to a catchment valley in Kotagala where it is extracted from beneath 196.85 feet of bedrock.
The consistent quality of Natural Mineral Water is governed by strict regulations stipulated by the Ministry of Health and Sri Lanka Institute of Standards. Our facilities are monitored frequently by these authorities to guarantee the absolute best quality standards for Olu Tropical Water.
