Fresh water from the ore mountains
In Einsiedel we have 7 wells coming from the Ore Mountains providing the first water. This water contains the greatest purity and perfection because of the complexity oft he Stone Mountains that has been stored within the Ore Mountains and untouched by human hands. This deep water combined with the best raw materials and long lasting knowledge contribute to German.
The Ore Mountains take their time. Over many millennia, the ore mountain water accumulates with the naturally present minerals and trace elements. The emergence of this elixir of life sets a counterpoint to our fast-paced times.
