With Aquanika — to the XXIst century

During millions of years the water from melting glaciers has been forming the underground relict sea.

During millions of years the water from melting glaciers has been forming the underground relict sea.

At out ultra-modern plant we just turn this water into a modern, useful and attractive product in a convenient and reliable pack.

We are willing to offer this unique and purest drinking water and drinks on its basis for all Russians.

Aquanika Company is a big Russian producer of natural mineral water Aquanika, high quality carbonated soft drinks Ministerstvo Gazirovki and other drinks.




We made active use of advanced world technologies which provide the highest quality and safety of our drinks.

We focused on consumers and developed products which correspond to their wishes and meet all their requirements.

We are guided by the principles of sustainable business development aiming to harmoniously combine the company effective growth with environment protection and corporate social responsibility.


Searching for «vital» water and perfection

Our history began looking for an answer to the question — where in Russia the best and the purest natural water can be found? The nature kept its secret deeply underground. The number of wells made by our prospectors exceeded several tens. Water tests were thoroughly analyzed and compared in the best laboratories. And finally, on the border of Nizhniy Novgorod and Vladimir regions we found the cleanest water of the underground relict sea. This is an underground reservoir with almost unlimited capacity formed 300 million years ago.


The Aquanika Plant was found in 2007 in Savasleyka village — the very place where the first well was made.

The plant was projected so that Aquanika’s wells are located in its territory — this minimizes the time from the water lift till its bottling. A large plant building was constructed according to the most advanced engineer ideas. Two more wells were drilled and equipped. Production lines were assembled basing on the best modern foreign equipment from the world industrial leaders. The potential capacity of the plant is 500 million liters of water and soft drinks per year.


Simultaneously with the plant construction the personnel selection and training was carried out because there were a few specialists available in our country who had dealt with such level of technical facility and such scopes. In 2010-2011 a test launch of the enterprise was implemented, technologies were worked out and production of drinking water and drinks started. Test launch results proved that the Company provided the highest production culture and uncompromising products quality.

The complex preparation for entering the level of a big federal player was completed.

Our water

The core of our uniqueness is high quality granted by nature

Natural component of Aquanika uniqueness as a producer is pure natural water characterized by a harmonious balance of micro and macro elements

Our water is taken from a protected spring – Verhnekamennougolniy and Nizhnekazanskiy underground reservoir. This unique deposit is so huge that they compare it with a sea. It has no analogues by capacity of its stores and water quality in the European part of Russia.

Three very deep wells are located in the territory of the plant. This provides additional safety of the sanitary hygienic protection.


The well construction is hermetic and admits no impurity penetration.

The usage of the most modern equipment and advanced technologies as well as high quality standards adopted at Aquanika enterprise allows maintaining all useful natural qualities of the water.

The original combination of natural features evokes genuine enthusiasm among specialists. Taste is a very subjective category but experts’ evaluations and great references based on blind tests results can be trusted.

Daily consumption of our water contributes into replenishment of fluor, calcium, sodium, magnum, potassium


and other important micro- and macro-elements essential for human’s physical and mental activities. The natural balance of biologically significant elements makes this water ideal both for drinking and making tea and coffee, cooking meals and drinks.

Where does this marvel appear from? The science tells that about 300 million years ago as a result of geological processes a gigantic underground reservoir formed. The relict sea was filled with water from melting glaciers. The long-term process of natural filtration and saturation with micro-elements made its deed. The nature also took care of the protection of this treasure by huge geological hard-pans which firmly corked up the colossal underground reservoir. This protects the underground water from external impacts.
