Our water

Our 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. Nature gives our water everything it needs – we don’t add things for taste or enhance with extras.

Where does evian come from?

French Alps

evian natural spring water starts as rain and snow that falls onto a glacial plateau in the French Alps.

Glacial Plateau

An area created 50,000 years ago during the Ice Age when glaciers melted and created a unique geological landscape.


The water naturally filters through layers of protected underground rock for over 15 years. When it emerges at the evian source; it contains naturally occurring electrolytes and minerals and a neutrally balanced pH of 7.2, which gives evian its unique, crisp taste.


The water emerges at the foot of the alps in the town of Évian-les-Bains, where the evian spring was first discovered over 200 years ago. We have great respect for this region and the water it provides. For over 25 years, we’ve been in partnership with the local community to continue to protect this natural resource so our water can be enjoyed today, tomorrow and always.

What is spring water?

While there are many different types of bottled water, spring water comes from an underground formation called an aquifer from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth at a source where it can be collected. evian natural spring water is collected and bottled from our source (Cachat Spring) in the French Alps.
