A mega brand associated with health, youth, beauty, fitness, and celebrity, Evian is the standard for still water in many trendy restaurants. It is sometimes abused to show status by using it to bathe in, and some females report a bitter metallic aftertaste when drinking Evian. At this point, its ubiquity makes it difficult to consider it a premium water.
The Marquis de Lessert discovered the Alpine source of Evian water in 1789. Before the water—which originates in the French Alps as rain and snow—reaches the source on Lake Geneva’s southern shore, it is filtered by a subterranean aquifer for fifteen years or more, picking up minerals from the glacial sand that give the water its distinctive taste. Evian today is one of the world’s most recognizable brands of bottled water.
