ABOUT GLENWOOD-INGLEWOOD SPRING WATER
Premium Waters, Inc. is proud to offer one of the purest forms of water available directly from our protected, natural, free-flowing spring. Glenwood-Inglewood Spring Water is an historic spring water originally bottled at its source west of downtown Minneapolis. Glenwood remains a local favorite.
Glenwood-Inglewood Spring Water has been around since the late 1800’s. Historical accounts claim the pure, bubbling water of Glenwood Spring was discovered by William H. Fruen, a Minneapolis businessman. After his discovery, Mr. Fruen filed the first vending machine patent in the United States and invented a coin-operated machine to dispense Glenwood Spring Water by the glass.*
On property next to Glenwood Spring was Inglewood Spring, which was run as a separate water company and competitor until the two merged to become the Glenwood-Inglewood Company in the late 1890’s. Glenwood-Inglewood became a great standing company that produced quality spring water products. It was the dominant brand of bottled water in the Twin Cities for decades.
The company was owned by the same family until a sale in the early 1990’s. Unfortunately, a subsequent sale to a private equity group led to the eventual demise of the business. That is until Premium Waters purchased the Glenwood-Inglewood Company of Minneapolis in 2011 and consolidated production and distribution into its existing operations.
Glenwood-Inglewood has always enjoyed a great reputation as a spring water brand and as a great source of distilled water. Premium Waters has successfully maintained Glenwood-Inglewood’s reputation, distribution and customer base.
