Originating on the slopes of Mount Lebanon at an altitude of 1,710 metres, Sohat’s spring was first discovered by the Romans. The water was famous for its properties, beneficial to health, and was exported to the Royal courts of Iraq and Egypt. It was rediscovered in 1910.
The water is purified by passing through various geological layers that give it a low mineral content and fine texture.
The 1 million m² estate around the source is protected to ensure the long-term health and quality of the natural environment.
Sohat has partnered with “LiveLove” to promote Lebanon’s culture and heritage and raise awareness about nature’s importance and value.
We have also supported the building of a water pipe to bring clean water from the Sohat mountains to the St Coeur Fakiha school.
In order to further highlight Lebanese culture, we are the water sponsor of “The Garden Show & Spring Festival”, Beirut’s premier open-air event that showcases gardening and outdoor living.
Nestlé Waters Lebanon is committed to reduce plastic waste by investing in recycling awareness programs via RVM, and helping improve recycling rates and efficiency.
Sohat was founded in 1970 by the Société des Eaux Minérales Libanaises S.A.L.
Sohat is one of the biggest selling natural mineral waters in Lebanon and one of the leading brands in Middle east. It’s also the oldest water brand in the Middle East since 1971.
In 1999, Nestlé Group acquired 49% of Sohat and became its sole owner in 2001.
Sohat is available in retail and out of home stores.
