This still, mineral-rich water springs from the Vosges Mountains of France.
Home to thermal baths and even a Club Med, the French town of Vittel is built around water in more ways than one. In 1854, lawyer Louis Bouloumié purchased the land surrounding a spring in the Vosges Mountains of Northeastern France, establishing a spa and later bottling the mineral-rich water that attracts so many visitors. The spring flows from an immense underground aquifer where rock strata and sandstone charge the water with calcium, magnesium and sulfates. Although the brand is now owned by Swiss conglomerate Nestlé Waters, Vittel remains popular with athletes and is the official water of the Tour de France.
