Whether you refer to it as Andes Mountain Water, A Spring Water or simply “A,” this pure offering from Chile caught our attention with its modern, A-shaped design and soft taste. Available both natural and sparkling, “A” is bottled from the largest natural water stream flowing from the Andes Mountains into Colico Lake in Chile. The “A” on the bottle stands for both Andes and Amalia, the woman who first discovered the source in 1912. At that time, a group of settlers led by Mrs. Amalia began using the source to distribute water to the households around the lake. The water quickly became famous for its purity and good taste, and has been credited with keeping the local population in excellent health for over 100 years! Andes Mountain Water has a very low salt content and balanced mineral content, a result of its twenty-year filtration process.
