LOUISVILLE, CO--(Marketwire - August 21, 2008) - Eldorado Artesian Springs, Inc. (OTCBB: ELDO) today announced that, based on preliminary, unaudited figures, it set a single-month sales record in July, topping the $1.0 million mark in net revenue for the first time in the Company's history. Revenue for July 2008 increased by 21% compared to July 2007.

Doug Larson, president and CEO, said the surge in sales in July was primarily attributable to new product introductions over the past year, including the Company's popular Organic Vitamin Charged Spring Water and a one-gallon purified water product created to fulfill a new contract with the world's largest retailer. He noted that a record July heat wave, price increases and normal customer ordering cycles also contributed to the record July.

"With July sales up more than 20% year over year, on an unaudited basis, we are seeing the positive effects of investments we have made over the past year in new product offerings, building our water rights portfolio, and adding new capital equipment and production capacity," said Larson. "We are pleased to say that we funded these revenue generating investments with internally generated cash flow without diluting our shareholders with expensive equity capital. We have also made excellent progress in expanding our distribution of new and existing products, including the addition of major retail chains to our already existing distribution network."

Cathy Shoenfeld, chief financial officer, added, "Shipments of our new Organic Vitamin Charged Spring Water increased 84% in the first quarter ended June 30th versus the fourth quarter ended March 31st. And in July alone, unit shipments exceeded the entire first quarter total, underscoring growing market acceptance of the industry's only organic vitamin enhanced spring water product. July revenue was also favorably impacted by our initial shipments of a new private label one gallon purified drinking water product to the Colorado region of the world's largest retailer. That product, along with our Organic Vitamin Spring Water, has excellent potential for significant growth moving forward."

The Company's Organic Vitamin Charged Spring Water was the subject of a feature story on CNBC's PowerLunch program (a replay of the video is available at http://www.eldoradosprings.com).
