Gerolsteiner Mineral Water - the water with a star

Gerolsteiner has more than 125 years of heritage: In 1888, geologist Wilhelm Castendyck came across a high-quality mineral water when drilling for carbonic acid in Gerolstein. This mineral water, which comes from the depths of the Volcanic Eifel, became one of Germany’s most in demand mineral water brands.

For international sale it is available in two varieties: Sparkling and Naturell (non-sparkling). Gerolsteiner’s unique combination of calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate gives it a well-balanced and clean taste.

Soft drinks - a fruity option!

Regardless of how much you enjoy drinking mineral water, occasionally it’s nice to mix it up a little! In Germany Gerolsteiner offers a range of soft drinks made with Gerolsteiner Mineral Water. The portfolio includes low-calorie thirst quenchers as well as naturally flavoured Gerolsteiner lemonades and Gerolsteiner Apple Spritzer. The same high quality can be enjoyed on all our beverage offerings.

Gerolsteiner Sparkling

We will explain to you the most important information on a Gerolsteiner Mineral Water label.

BBD

In principle, mineral water has an unlimited storage life; however, food products must indicate a best-before date (BBD) in accordance with the Food Labelling Regulation. Gerolsteiner Sparkling in glass bottles has a BBD of 36 months and Gerolsteiner Naturell 24 months, based on the carbonic acid content. Drinks bottled in PET bottles lose carbonation over time. For this reason, mineral water in PET bottles has been given a BBD of 12 months.

Batch number

Using the code, which is noted in the BBD area next to the production date and best-before date, you can find out exactly when this bottle was filled by us.

Sales name

The so-called sales name is the name of the food product stipulated by law. In this case, we are talking about a carbonated “Natural Mineral Water”.

Source analysis

This list presents the natural ingredients, which are characteristic for mineral water, for example calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate. The content is indicated in milligrams per litre. The results of the source analysis are verified by check analyses.

Source name & location

Natural mineral water must be bottled directly at the source location. The source location of all Gerolsteiner Mineral Waters and the mineral water in our soft drinks is Gerolstein in the Volcanic Eifel region of Southwest Germany. The source name for Gerolsteiner Sparkling is “Gerolsteiner”. The still mineral water Gerolsteiner Naturell comes from another source named “Gerolsteiner Naturell”.

Disposal/recycling

First of all, the different symbols on the label represent registrations, which Gerolsteiner must carry out in order for products to be able to be sold in certain countries. Other symbols enable our consumers to take Gerolsteiner products to appropriate recycling systems after consumption, similar to “Grünen Punkt” (Green Dot) in Germany.

EAN code

Like all commodities, our products have an EAN (European Article Number) and the corresponding barcode, which can, for example, be read by a checkout scanner. Every product is clearly labelled with the EAN code.

Other languages

Gerolsteiner Mineral Water is sold around the world. Therefore, the sales name is indicated on the label in every national language of the countries to which the product is exported. In the process, we consider the most diverse demands of the respective countries.

Manufacturer

You can find the contact details for Gerolsteiner Brunnen and responsible importers in the respective exporting countries on the label.

Other information

Specific product qualities, which could help the consumer when choosing products, such as “Rich in minerals.” or “Perfectly balanced taste.” in this case, are indicated on the label in a prominent position. In addition, the label also provides storage recommendations.
