Gerolsteiner is a Mineral Water of outstanding quality. But what exactly makes it so special? The answer: It tastes good, and it does you good. Few waters combine these equally important criteria.

Due to its volcanic origin, Gerolsteiner sparkling Mineral Water inherently contains valuable minerals like calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. It is thus beneficial to the human body, as each mineral has a specific effect on our health: Calcium is important for healthy bones and teeth, while magnesium strengthens your muscles and nerves.

Some waters taste neutral but contain only small amounts of minerals; other waters hold minerals but taste salty or bitter due to their sodium chloride or sulfate content. Due to its balanced content of calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate and comparatively small amounts of sodium and chloride, Gerolsteiner Mineral Water tastes neither salty, sour nor bitter – but pleasantly natural and neutral.

Preserving this great quality has always been Gerolsteiner’s highest priority. That is why the experts at Gerolsteiner carefully monitor every single production step – from sourcing to bottling, from labeling to loading. This way Gerolsteiner can guarantee that the Mineral Water you drink from one of the bottles is in the same condition as at its source: fresh and pure!

When it comes to quality assurance, Gerolsteiner doesn’t only work to comply with strict legal requirements. Every day, up to 300 water samples are taken in order to guarantee an ideal mineral ratio and the highest level of purity. Furthermore, renowned institutes and laboratories conduct regular tests.

From Germany into the World

The history behind Gerolsteiner Mineral Water goes way back: Gerolsteiner has been providing great Mineral Water "Made in Germany" since 1888. When the Gerolsteiner Sprudel GmbH was founded in 1888, the Mineral Water was still filled into clay jugs. In the course of history Gerolsteiner frequently played a pioneer's role by introducing innovations to the German water market: In 1998 Gerolsteiner launched the first PET re-usable bottle and in 2011 Gerolsteiner was the first Mineral Water Company to deliver its water in 1.0l glass bottles.

However, maintaining an international focus has always been of major importance to Gerolsteiner. It was already during the early years that the company began selling its premium Mineral Water abroad. First in the USA (1890), then in Australia (1895), followed by the Benelux countries (1980s), Japan (2004) and many others.

In 2012 Gerolsteiner increased its efforts as Germany's biggest Mineral Water exporter by launching the new 0.33l (11.2 OZ) light glass bottle on the international markets - a perfect addition to the international portfolio round the 0.75l (25.3OZ) light glass bottle, launched in 2011.
