It comes from an area the Romans called the Volcani Vicus, village of volcanoes. (Or Massif Central in France to you and me). But as the centuries passed, the locals forgot that the nearby mountains were dormant volcanoes. It wasn’t until 1962, that the volcanic secret of the water was re-discovered.
Volvic water is created by rainwater that flows underground. But not through any old rock. Oh no. Volvic travels through hundreds of metres of volcanic material. It filters through 6 layers of porous rock. Each layer is the result of a volcano erupting. So by the time the water hits the impermeable granite bed at the bottom, it’s picked up its Volcanicity.
Some call it a spark. But we call it Volcanicity. Volvic's unique taste comes from a rare combination of minerals and trace elements, including silica, while still being low in sodium. (For all the non-boffins, it means there’s no other water like it). But hey, don’t take our word for it. Try some Volvic and experience the Volcanicity for yourself.
