PepsiCo has acquired V Water – an emerging UK bottled-water brand – for £10m. V Waters, which is owned by Unilever Ventures, was launched in 2005 by Christopher Coleridge and Walter Faulstroh. It sells six different types of bottled water – each of which promises a benefit. The 'Detox' variety claims to cleanse the system and comes with dandelion and artichoke extract as well as added vitamins. V Water was advised by Spayne Lindsay.
