The origins of evian natural spring water dates back thousands of years to the very birth of the French Alps. Over several ice ages, a natural filter developed, creating a one of a kind haven for the planet‰۪s most precious treasure. Each drop of evian starts off as rain or snow high up on the pristine peaks of the French Alps, traveling through a vast mineral aquifer deep within the mountains before emerging at last at the spring in Evian-Les-Bains. This amazing journey is the secret to Evian water‰۪s purity and it takes over 15 years. Throughout this process, evian is filtered naturally, without chemicals, giving it the purity, mineral content, and taste that nature intended.
