In 1789, a French noble, the Marquis de Lessert, was visiting his friend in the countryside when he politely accepted the offer of a glass of mineral water. The story goes that the Marquis drank the water and promptly asked for another glass because of its freshness and purity. Later, the Marquis was astonished when a chronic kidney condition that had plagued him from years suddenly vanished. He credited his cure to the spring water, and soon, people all over France were anxious for a sip. It is from that very same spring that the Evian Spray collection is sourced.
