Coconut water has emerged as a great alternative to normal H20 for people who want a hydrating drink with a bit more taste. Unlike many other health drinks that we've tried over the years, coconut water has grown consistently in popularity. Consequently, there are lots of options out there for coconut water. For this reason, we thought it would be useful to round up the best coconut water that you can buy in the UK, let's get into it:
Innocent is probably best known as a smoothie brand, but the company actually has a fairly extensive range of products which includes an excellent coconut water product. This is just 100% pure coconut water without anything else added to it, so no sweeteners or preservatives or anything like that. The coconuts used to make this coconut water are sustainably sourced and Fair Trade certified. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com
The first thing you'll notice about the Rebel Kitchen coconut water is that it's pink - don't be alarmed though, that is all natural! It's pink in colour because the coconuts used to make this coconut water are young green coconuts from the Philippines which are packed with polyphenols which oxidize and turn the water pink. This coconut water has a very fresh taste and is absolutely delicious, and we're not surprised it has won a Great Taste award. Learn more and buy it here - waitrose.com
Vita Coco is probably the best-selling coconut water brand in the UK at the moment, and we're not surprised at all by this - they're a great brand. The coconut water from Vita Coco is made using coconut from farmers that the brand works closely with. You can buy a standard pure coconut water from Vita Coco, but we prefer the pressed coconut water - it's made with added pressed coconut which gives it a lovely sweet taste. And this is one of only 2 coconut waters that we could find with a 'Great Taste' award, so clearly we're not the only ones who think this coconut water tastes great.

Another very popular coconut water brand in the UK is Coco Cabana - we've seen the products from this brand stocked in major supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsbury's. The coconut water from Coco Cabana is excellent quality - it's made using coconuts from Sri Lanka, and it has a really lovely sweet taste. Like all good coconut water, it's packed with electrolytes and vitamins. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com
The team at Dr. Martins has called this 'Coconut Juice', but that is exactly the same as coconut water. The coconut water from this brand is really impressive and actually encompasses 2 different options - a 'young' coconut water and a 'king' coconut water. The young coconut water is the standard product from the brand and is made using Fair Trade organic coconuts from Brazil. The King coconut water is made using organic King coconuts from Sri Lanka which have a very rich taste. The Dr. Martins team are clearly committed to creating excellent coconut water and we highly recommend you give it a try. Learn more and buy it here - amazon.co.uk
All of the coconut water produced by the UFC Refresh brand is made using coconuts from Thailand, from the area of the country known as the "Coconut Belt". The company itself is actually based in Thailand and has a very close relationship with the farmers that the coconuts are sourced from, but you can of course buy this coconut water in the UK. It's 100% natural coconut water which contains no added sugar or anything else, but you can buy a Watermelon flavoured version of the coconut water which is also very tasty.
