Uludağ Sparkling Natural Mineral Water originates from an alluvial cover enriched with crystalline schist and magnetic roots, and the geological structure of the area is called the “Mount Uludağ complex”.

The source for Uludağ Sparkling Natural Mineral Water - then called Keşiş Mountain mineral water - was purchased by İbrahim Talat Bey and Monsieur Brune on July 6, 1870. The company received its operating license from Sultan Mehmet Reşat Han at the Dolmabahçe Palace on May 26, 1912. During those years, partners of the Keşiş Mountain Mineral Water business included Sıtkı Bey (Ulusu) from Crete, and Monsieur Bourousine, to whom Monsieur Brune transferred his shares in 1890. In the 1920's, following the death of İbrahim Talat Paşa, his shares were transferred to his wife Şerife Hanife Güzide and the Italian investor Guido Parodi. Around this time, French investor Monsieur Bourousine's shares were also transferred to partners.
