Socosani originates from the snowmelt of the Chachani volcano in Arequipa, Peru. The Chachani Volcano has an atitude of 20,000ft (6,000m) above sea level and its summit is always covered in snow. Snowmelt filters through the geo-strata and follow its natural underground course towards the Socosani Valley, where they also naturally emerge at the free flowing spring.
The Valley is located in a remote area naturally isolated from any type of pollution. Socosani is a bottled at the source to keep all its properties as natural as possible.
Marco Aurelio Vinelli an Italian pharmacist discovers the source and after he send samples to France to certificate the mineral properties of the water, he open the first bottler of mineral spring water company in Peru in 1004. The word Socosani has its origin in the Aymara word "Suq'usa", which refers to the name of a type of reed (Cañahueca), abundant in the Valley.
