Cedarberg Aqua


Cedarberg Aqua is a family owned business which offers natural water of the highest quality to a range of customers in South Africa. The company is located on the farm Kleinswartvlei in the Olifants River Valley near Citrusdal, 150 kilometers north of Cape Town. The water is bottled at a source up in the Cedarberg Mountains.

An ideal ph level of 5 and a balanced mineral content give it the crisp taste of pure moutain water, comparable to the best in the world.


Cedarberg Aqua is very much the brainchild of Lieben van der Merwe, one of the well-known Van der Merwe brothers from Citrusdal. Lieben’s brother, Gerrit owns ALG Estates, leading growers of citrus in SA.

Lieben was semi-retired when he ventured into the natural water business back in 2002 as a result of his own market and consumer research.

He travelled throughout South Africa and observed buying patterns of consumers who stop at service stations along the country’s roads. Ironically, it was an experience in a road side farm stall near Marienthal in Namibia wherehe finally made up his mind to develop the rich natural water resource of kleinswartvlei into a thriving business.


The water originates from pristine and untouched mountain peaks and slopes, from where it filters down through layers of Cape Sandstone, one of the best.
