Aigua de Vilajuïga is a naturally sparkling mineral waters with very delicate “aguja” (needle point bubbles). The natural carbonation is finer and more numerous than a water with added carbon dioxide, making it more delicate to the palate and giving a characteristic taste.

This is an exception natural area with a geographical make-up of structures and outcrops that are unique in the world. The area is also a scientific and teaching resource, especially in the field of tectonics.
Vilajuïga is rare and it only bottles 264,000 gallons (1 million l) per year. The water was selected by Ferran Adrià to compliment his creations in the world famous El Bulli.
