Top 10 Bottled Waters

Badoit's naturally carbonated spring water has been revered for its restorative properties for hundreds of years

Revered by the ancient Gauls and enjoyed by kings, the waters of Saint-Galmier have long been recognized for their restorative properties. However, it took an enterprising silk salesman named Auguste Badoit to share the spring water of this tiny French town with the world. Traveling to the surface from 500 feet below the Loire Valley, the water is naturally endowed with a generous amount of trace minerals as well as light, playful bubbles that give Badoit its signature taste. Today, the water is a common sight at fine restaurants, where its delicate carbonation and balanced taste complement the subtle flavors of gourmet meals.
