Botttle of Badoit mineral water

Badoit is a brand of mineral water obtained from natural sources at Saint-Galmier, France. The water is naturally carbonated, on its journey through granite rocks and subterranean gas deposits.

History[edit]

Badoit is named after Auguste Badoit, who began bottling the water of Saint Galmier in 1838. The water was sold only in pharmacies until 1954. In 1971, Badoit became part of Evian SA, which later became a fully owned subsidiary of Boussois Souchon Neuvesel. Today, Badoit is a product and brand of the Danone group.
