Virgen natural mineral water has a hint of sweet due to its almost neutral ph. The balanced, medium mineralization enhances the waters perception as "sweet" and "soft" despite its calcium and magnesium content. Virgen is a premium natural water in an upscale glass presentation and will enhance every epicurean table or dining experience.
The source of Virgen natural mineral water lies deep in the Arequita mountains and it owes its name (Are-Cua- Tia) "River of the high Stone Cave" to the Guaranies, Amerindians who inhabited this natural sanctuary during the pre-Columbian era. Uruguay has one of the lowest levels of pollution in the world, and occupies the 3rd place among the 146 countries researched.
The water originates from the rain that replenishes the secluded natural water table of the legendary Arequita mountains, a remarkable geological formation dating 300 million years, which protects, mineralizes and purifies the water along its journey through the aquifer.
This gift of nature is bottled at the source in an ecologically friendly plant especially designed in order to maintain the source experience of the water, while meeting the highest standards of quality and safety.
