Is Evian the Best Bottled Water?
Evian is a pinnacle of bottled waters for the bottled water enthusiast for good reason. Evian Water captures the essence of pristine spring water sources with state-of-the-art bottling techniques.
Evian’s source of water is the Source Cachat, where the water emerges from a tunnel in the mountain at 52.88° F. This source of water is fed by the snow-melt and rain that filters from the Vinzier Plateau and through glacial sand for over fifteen years. The water is protected from pollution by the clay that surrounds the glacial sand. After the filtering process, the water is then bottled at a nearby bottling plant that is held to the highest standards.
Evian is so pure in taste, it has a unique taste that a food expert describes as “milky.” Evian Natural Spring Water is bottled and packaged in glass and plastic bottles in 1/3, ½, 1, and 1.5 liter bottles. Evian water has also been recognized as suitable to use for mixing baby formulas due to its purity.
