Discover our 6 water families


The tasting process enabled us to depict each of the 140 waters in diagram form and to group together waters whose profiles were similar. The outcome of this exercise was a “waters map” which clearly shows six broad clusters, or families of taste: three for still waters and three for sparkling. The names we have given them give a clear and evocative indication of each family’s overall nature: “bold and distinctive”, “rich and revitalising”, “soft and elegant”, etc.

Not only is our “waters map” a pioneering tool for classifying waters according to taste, it also opens up new options for enjoying water, and will help consumers to find their bearings in the immensely diverse world of flavours and to experience a variety of different tastes.

Consumers will soon be able to find information on taste at points of sale, to help them make their choices.

These waters have pure and bright sensations, and a lot of balance. They are soft, with low mineral and salt content.Their freshness and fluidity is appreciated due to the feeling of purity and the regenerative effect they provide. They are ideal for children due to their soft and gentle taste.
Light & Pure
Acqua Panna
Aqua Panna is as light as silk, epitomising Tuscan mellowness, and its pure, velvety taste found favour with the Medicis as far back as the Renaissance. It is incredibly limpid, with a low mineral content and has a well-rounded character. It is a perfect, refreshing accompaniment to food.
Master Tseng's tasting notes:
with a hint of wet granite. It is like discovering a clear stream. It has a light, almost silky, texture. Its balanced taste combines salty, bitter and sweet elements and conjures up wet white pebbles”.
