Évian (stylized as Evian), is a brand of mineral water coming from several sources near Évian-les-Bains, on the south shore of Lake Geneva.
Today, Évian is owned by Danone, a French multinational corporation. In addition to the mineral water, Danone Group uses the Évian name for a line of organic skincare products as well as a luxury resort in France.
In popular culture, Évian is portrayed as a luxury and expensive bottled water. It is popular among Hollywood celebrities. The brand frequently collaborates with high-fashion designers for a series of limited edition bottles.
About history, in 1789, during a walk, the Marquis of Lessert drank water from the Sainte Catherine spring on the land of an M. Cachat. The marquis, who was allegedly suffering from kidney and liver problems, claimed that the water from the spring cured his ailments.
Evian first became a public company in 1859 as the "Société anonyme des eaux minérales de Cachat" and a year later it became French when Savoy was incorporated into France under the Treaty of Turin. In 1908 Évian water began to be sold in glass bottles manufactured by the glass factory Souchon-Neuvesel, which today is a part of Owens-Illinois.
In 1970, the BSN Group, which eventually became the Danone Group, took 100% control of the Évian brand. 1978 marked an entrance into the U.S. market. In 1995 Evian switched to collapsible PET bottles.
According to Statista, Évian was the best-selling brand of bottled mineral water in Great Britain, an estimated 7.3 million users in 2019.
