FORT ANN — Upstate New York has long been known for its water, from the Catskill Mountain watershed that supplies New York City with clean drinking water to the mineral springs that gave Saratoga Springs its name. Now, there’s a new local water company on the scene that sources its product from an artesian aquifer in the Adirondacks.

Realm, a premium water brand, will be officially unveiled at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City later this month. Its water source in Fort Ann, about 30 miles north of Saratoga, is said to be “98% uncontaminated” and “untouched by natural and human pollutants,” according to the company’s press release. Owners Mark and Joe Miller have spent the last seven years trying to bring the water to market.

“Water is the most essential element and we cannot survive without it. We understand the importance of providing and protecting natural resources, which is why Realm means so much to us,” said Realm’s CEO Todd Kletter in a statement.

Starting this fall, Realm will be available in still and sparkling varieties, packaged in glass bottles. Consumers will be able to purchase the bottles via the brand’s website.
