Evian’s water gets its unique cool, crisp taste from its 15–year journey through the French Alps. It starts as snow and rain and travels slowly through layers of glacial rocks where it becomes naturally filtered and enhanced with electrolytes and minerals. The uniquely sourced spring water is always refreshing and naturally hydrating, with nothing added for taste or enhanced with extras – so you can reach your natural peak.
