History

Julius Caesar was without a doubt the very first Saint-Géron Lover!

He loved the water of Saint-Géron to the extent of extolling its virtues in his “Commentaries on the Gallic War”. Since then, Saint-Géron has marked different periods of history. Its name has been associated with great national figures such as the Marquis de La Fayette in the 18th century or regional personalities like Jean Casati in the 19th century.

 

A new bottling plant saw the day in 2006, next to the source’s catchment, dating back to the 19th century. The building is located in a historic and privileged setting, all the while respecting environmental and ecological norms.

A modern site at the heart of nature

Un collectif d'artisans de l’excellence française Depuis 2005, un groupe d’entrepreneurs-artisans a décidé de s’engager pour Saint-Géron car elle reflète leurs valeurs et leurs convictions. Convaincus par cette eau à la saveur unique et aux qualités exceptionnelles, ils se sont engagés pour poursuivre l’histoire de la source. Parmi eux, les chefs étoilés parisiens Alain Dutournier et Michel Rostang, la famille Mitjaville du château bordelais Tertre Roteboeuf, la famille Billecart, propriétaire en Champagne de Billecart-Salmon se sont mobilisés pour la renaissance de Saint-Géron. Des entrepreneurs nouvelle génération, comme Michaël Klein, fondateur de Cosmetosource et d’Aroma Thermes, n'ont pas hésité à les suivre.

Since 2005, a group of entrepreneurs-artisans have decided to support Saint-Géron as it reflects their values and convictions. Won over by the unique flavor and exceptional qualities of this water, they have offered to perpetuate the source’s story. Personalities such as Michelin-starred chefs, Alain Dutournier and Michel Rostang, the Mitjavilles (owners of the Bordeaux wine estate Tertre Roteboeuf) and the Billecarts (owners of Champage Billecart-Salmon) have joined forces in view of reviving Saint-Géron.

  • The past never lies

     

    During the 19th century, local industrialist, Jean Casati, commissioned the catchment of the spring, in order to collect water from its outlet in a rocky fault. To this end, an 80-meter ditch was dug. As a result, the water springs from the hill situated in the terroir called, “Font Savade”. Old wooden and stone wells have been found on the site, as well as Gallo-Roman coins, and offerings, confirming that the source dates back to antiquity.

  • High standards and environment-friendly

     

    The use of wood, stainless steel and aluminum materials allows this building to perfectly integrate the tranquil green landscape. Representing a surface area of 4,200 m2, the bottling line has a capacity of up to 15,000 units per hour. Extremely efficient and boasting the latest technology, this equipment is in line with international health standards.

  • “Born and bred near the Adour River in Southwest France, I quickly came to respect and venerate water, as a vital resource. The Pyrenees, the ocean and the forest have taught me to appreciate purity and strangely revealed my wonderful gift - that of water diviner. At the beginning of the creation of the association, dedicated to the sleeping Gallo-Roman spring of Saint Géron, I discovered a fantastic story and a true morality. Fully aware of the rarity worldwide of age old sparkling mineral waters, I rediscovered stimulated senses and the taste and elegance of tiny natural bubbles. It’s a source of inspiration for chefs like me. Thankfully devoid of nitrates, it’s perfectly adapted to refined cuisine. It refreshes the palate, without masking wine aromas and highlights food flavors.”

l’Histoire

  • le passé ne ment pas

     

    Au XIXe siècle, Jean Casati, industriel brivadois fait réaliser le captage de la source pour la prendre à la sortie même de la faille rocheuse. Une tranchée de 80 mètres sera nécessaire. L’eau émerge alors de la colline située sur le terroir dit de « Font Savade ».

    On a trouvé sur le site des puits anciens en bois et en pierre et aussi des monnaies gallo-romaines, des offrandes, attestant que la source remonte à l’Antiquité.
