Our Story

We have a relentless drive for perfection in production and service to our valued customers – retail, wholesale and vending.

ISHKA Spring Water is one of Ireland’s largest bottled water companies. We are proud to produce only naturally sourced bottled water.

ISHKA Irish Spring Water was founded in 1978 by Mr Michael Sutton Snr and is managed today by his sons Mike Sutton and Denis Sutton.

Our purpose-built, state of the art, high technology facility located in the village of Ballyneety in County Limerick is one of the most modern facilities in Europe, where product, production and business innovation is constant.

  • We regard operational excellence, quality assurance, environmental health and food safety protection as essential requirements of our daily operations.
  • We conduct our business in a manner that protects the environment and the health and safety of our customers, employees and the community in which we operate.
  • Our lean manufacturing processes focus on continuous improvement, eliminating waste and adding value.
  • We create maximum value for our customers.

It is down to the dedication and care that our team put into source management, quality control, bottling and marketing our water that ISHKA Irish Spring Water is as successful as it is today. We set the bar high for our entire team, creating a culture that engages everyone.
