Acqua Panna is an Italian brand of bottled water. Acqua Panna takes its name from the Villa Panna in the hills of Tuscany, where the natural spring was first discovered.

Origin[edit]

The Acqua Panna source is located 3,700 feet high in the Apennine Mountains of Tuscany, to the north of Florence.

History[edit]

In the 16th century the powerful ruling family of the Medici's in Florence, owned the spring and it was fenced off as private property. The family had fresh drinking water from this preserved natural spring, as for many other unclaimed springs were contaminated with animal waste.

This brand now belongs to San Pellegrino, which is owned by Nestlé.

Nestlé distributes the natural water into Europe & North America. Acqua Panna has become the exclusive bottled beverage at many luxury establishments.[citation needed]

In May 2010, large luxury hotel chains such as Hilton, OMNI, and Fairmont agreed to undisclosed terms with Nestlé to carry the brand in their hotel chains.[citation needed]
