Vichy is the best-known naturally sparkling mineral water in Catalunya, and perhaps in the whole of Spain. The source is a thermal spring sixty miles north-east of Barcelona, prized for the quality of its water since pre-Roman times. Since 1889 it has been bottled in the small village of Caldes de Malavella. It is now one of the most recognisable water brands throughout Spain.
It has a high mineral content and a distinctive taste. Its taste comes from the 27 essential minerals it contains, which are known to lower cholesterol and promote metabolic function. It is available in 1 litre glass bottles, 1.2 litre PET bottles and packs of six x 300ml glass bottles.
