Volvic is a brand of premium bottled spring water that is taken from a single spring in France. The spring, known as the Clairvic Spring, is hidden in the small town of Volvic, from which the brand takes its name. The secret of the spring is that it emerges roughly 90 meters below ground, and it is fed by waters filtering down from the nearby Auvergne mountains. They are an extinct volcano ridge that contains a vast volume of porous sediment, through which the water travels. During its journey, it is simultaneously filtered and bestowed with incredible minerals. Volvic has a rich, alkaline taste that stems from the presence of natural electrolytes in the water. It contains silica, calcium, bicarbonate, magnesium, and potassium, all of which play vital roles in human physiology. Water from the Clairvic Spring has long been known to have restorative effects within the small Volvic community.
