Enjoy the refreshing and original taste of St-Yorre Mineral Water, coming straight from natural springs in the center of France. St-Yorre is a popular naturally sparkling water whose high level of bicarbonates give the water a unique mouthfeel.
The mineral water of St-Yorre comes from the depths of the earth in the Auvergne, France. Coming from the sources of the pool of Vichy, it flows rich in minerals and trace elements that is considered healthful. The water’s mineral composition is recognized by the French Academy of Medicine and the Ministry of Health. Its effective minerals act positively on digestion, muscular exercise, and for proper re-hydration.
Vichy is a city in the Allierdepartment of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes in central France, in the historic province of Bourbonnais. It is a spa and resort town particularly famous for its natural spring water. The historical existence of volcanic activity in the Massif Central is somewhat visually evident. Volcanic eruptions have happened for at least 150,000 years, but all volcanoes there have been dormant for at least 112 years. Volcanic activity in the area is the direct cause of the many thermal springs that exist in and around Vichy. The city was first noted for its thermal cures in Roman times. Its waters come from springs such as the Vichy Celestins and Vichy Saint-Yorre.
A pharmacist, Nicolas Larbaud, recognized in 1850 the unique qualities of the natural spring on his property. In the middle of the 19th century he received approval to develop the spring. In 1859, he created the first corporation for the waters of St-Yorre, and in 1862, the springs were given permission to declare St-Yorre as coming from the springs of VIchy because of the similarity of the composition with other waters from Vichy. At first, St-Yorre is bottled by hand. Other waters around Vichy began to be bottled and by 1920 there were approximately 22 different ones. St-Yorre remained a leading brand and was grouped together with sources of identical characteristics under the name "Royale.”
