Bottled since 1826, Evian Natural Spring Water is the world's #1 brand of
premium natural spring water. Every drop of Evian takes over 15 years to
filter through mineral rich glacial sands in the pristine French Alps. Bottled
at the source in a state of the art facility, Evian comes from the Cachat
Spring located on the Southern shore of Lake Geneva, in the town of
Evian-les-Bains. Evian provides a uniquely balanced mineral composition and
subtle flavor as a product of its unhurried journey.
Today, Evian is a brand of the Danone Group, a leader in the food industry
and number one by volume in the world for packaged water and dairy products.
Evian first entered the U.S. market in 1978, where it was served in the finest
bars and restaurants in distinctive glass bottles, and is now accepted as the
most premium natural spring water for those, including many of Hollywood's
elite, who like to treat themselves to the very best.
