The Aqua Viva water comes from a deep source in the Bukulja volcano in Serbia. This volcanic source is 500 metres below the surface and is protected by layers of clay and granite. Its volume isn’t immediately apparent, but at first glance, it looks much like a litre. The bottle is elegant, with a subtle slender recess for the all-round label. The label shows a stylised mountain landscape.

The Karlovy Vary region is rich in mineral springs with varying temperatures and tastes. The water was first used by Roman Emperor Charles IV, who went on to name the town after it. However, locals were already aware of the mineral springs, and soon after, physicians became interested. Now, research has confirmed the beneficial effects of drinking the water and bathing in it. This has earned the area worldwide fame.
