Solan de Cabras is Spain's best known premium water brand. Its distinctive blue bottle stands out in many prestigious restaurants and it is a popular choice amongst sommeliers, chefs and consumers alike.

The first chemical analysis was made in 1790 and the mineral composition has hardly changed since then. This is,in part, down to the dense character of the minerals that make up the aquifer. It has been calculated that rainfall is filtered for 400 years before it re-emerges from the spring which runs continuously and at a constant temperature of 21 degrees.
