TheDailyMeal: What You Didn't Know About Your Bottled Water

8 of 10

7. Evian

Does it list its treatment process: Not really
From the website: "Each drop of Evian starts as rain and melting snow on the peaks of the Northern Alps. It filters through layers of glacial sand on a 15+ year journey deep in the heart of the mountains. Through this process, Evian is filtered naturally, without chemicals, giving it the purity, mineral content, and taste that nature intended."

Fine and dandy… we guess. But the website does break down the mineral content of its water on the same page, as well as on the label, so that’s handy. The source page also has some YouTube videos that try to explain the "mineral vesta" of the Alps and its filtration process.

Does it list its sources: Sort of, but not really
We know it's from the Alps. There are multiple YouTube videos on its website that are supposed to explain how the water travels over 15 years through the Alps but… that’s it. 

Does it list its water quality analysis: Maybe
There are links from the main site to water quality reports for California and one for all other states, but the URLS are coming up empty.

How does it taste: Number 10 out of 10, with a score of 67.5  
Yeah, it didn't fare that well with our testers. "Mineral-y," "soft,"... one called it "toilet water" but we think that's harsh. One tester immediately guessed it was Evian because of its softness, which is a defining descriptor of Evian from other tests we've seen. Perhaps because we're New Yorkers who like a hard tap water.
