BADOIT - French Bubbles of Joy since 1778
Badoit is a French brand of mineral water from natural springs in Saint-Galmier. The water is naturally carbonized as it travels through granite rocks and underground gas deposits.
An exclusive innovation in the premium water segment, high quality and unique on the German market. This exclusive water is combined with fine cuisine and wine in top French restaurants. Some affectionately call it the "gourmand's mineral water".
As early as 1778, Richard Marin de Laprade, court physician to Louis XVI, recommended the finely sparkling Badoit because of its appetizing and curative effect and ennobled it with the title champagne of waters. In 1838, Auguste Saturnin Badoit, who gave it his name, bought the spring in St-Galmier in order to then sell the digestive mineral water through pharmacies. Already in 1858 more than 1.5 million liters of Badoit (7000 bottles per day) were sold. Thanks to its good reputation, Badoit gradually found its way into top international gastronomy. In 1971 Badoit became part of Evian. Today Badoit is a product and brand of the Danone Group.
Only about 260 million liters are bottled each year. So this is basically a rare water.
In 2019, Danone announced that Badoit was no longer available in Germany and the UK. Because Badoit is a natural mineral water, the company recognizes the need to preserve the source and never extract more than nature can provide. In the Saint Galmier region of France, there have been droughts in recent years that have impacted the rate of groundwater recharge. Danone felt the responsible approach was to reduce the amount of Badoit bottled and sold to protect the source for future generations.
Therefore, our exclusive stock is strictly limited.
Badoit is France's number 1 carbonated water. It rises in the picturesque village of St-Galmier on the Loire and is one of the rare mineral waters that gush from the source already slightly carbonated. The carbonic acid contained in Badoit is formed by combination and not by compression. Badoit is a very clear water, fresh and fine.
The sparkling content of carbonic acid makes Badoit a very pleasant and yet intense and unique taste experience. The effervescent small and very fine bubbles give the water a beautiful structure. Badoit is a substantial water, but despite its high mineral content, it has a very light taste. A positive influence on digestion and other beneficial properties are due to the strong, natural content of hydrogen carbonate.
Its fine sparkling carbonic acid invigorates the senses and enriches the taste of the finest ingredients, says THIERRY MARX, Executive Chef at Mandarin Oriental Paris.
As an insider tip of French haute cuisine, Badoit has been an integral part of true savoir vivre from Paris to St. Tropez for many years.
Badoit does not report nitrate levels, but independent tests have found it to be less than 5mg/L.
