Evian: A Mineral Marvel
Photo: Hervé Schmelzle
As famous abroad as the baguette or camembert cheese, as beloved in France as Champagne and Bordeaux wine, Evian is the most sold mineral water in the world, with 1.6 billion liters (over 400 million gallons!) sold in over 150 countries. How did this expensive and flavorless beverage become the world-famous success it is today?
The secret starts underground, beneath glaciers, travelling untouched by human hands through layers of rock and sediment before ending up in one of the most modern, advanced bottling plants on the planet, which—until now—has been closed to TV crews.
We travel to the foot of the Alps, near the shores of Lake Geneva, to trace the refreshing journey of this unprocessed, unparalleled mineral marvel.
