From the top of the heights
Natural spring water – From the top of the heights
Little is known that Leda comes from the part of Herzegovina which is an oasis of unique spring waters.
It travels a long journey through the mountains before it reaches Borak spring for the bottling process. Leda’s journey starts in central Bosnia, where a watershed between the Black Sea and the Adriatic basin is located under the large massif of the Vranica mountain. Most of these deep waters under mountain massifs move towards the Adriatic so the area of western and northwestern Herzegovina is the place of its most frequent numerous springs.
A part of the mountain hydro complex, which the river Lištica is a part of, is probably the most impressive natural spring complex not only in our country, but in the whole neighbouring region as well. Shielding perhaps man’s most important and crucial resource, for the future preservation of human health – water.
The fact that Leda is bottled in this unique environment, where it surfaces ground and meets the human eye for the first time after hundreds of kilometers of wandering through the mountains, gives this product a reasonable and natural basis for introducing the market to such a rare boon.
During summer months, these springs were of the utmost importance for people and herds dwelling in the mountains Čvrsnica or Čabulja, hence the hydronyms such as Bare or Hajdučka Vrila have been preserved since ancient times.
Borak has held an important position in the history of manking in the area. Namely, numerous civilizations have left their traces here in different phases of human development. Maybe the most important ones are related to Illyrian who guarded these springs with their lives and built guard forts over them.
It was the importance of water source that caused for primitive dwellings built by the Illyrians Delmatians near the main spring in Borak to be demolished by the Romans. Finally, the Slavs, today known as Croats, built their fortress at the spot and named the spring source Borak, a name that, from the Old Slavic laguage translates to a meadow, meadow, plateau.
Leda truly comes from mountain peaks, some over two thousand meters in height, only to be directly bottled at her spring. On her way, Leda filters through layers of mountains collecting valuable minerals and other mineral ingredients. It is recommended to consume Leda cooled to 8 degrees celsius, the way mountain cools her in her natural environment.
Leda is the spirit and the fresh breath of the mountains, originating at mountain peaks. This is how we came up with our slogan „from the top of the heights“. Slogan mirrors excellence of the tops, and Leda is more than worthy to hold it.
