About Still Mineral Water
SPA is uniquely low in minerals and is especially suitable for a low Sodium diet; sourced in the Belgian Ardennes, it has a clean, neutral taste. The health springs of Spa have a long, rich and colourful history. They were first mentioned in the journals of a Roman naturalist called Pliny the Elder who lived during the first century A.D., when he spoke in his book 'Natural History' of 'a famous fountain in which bubbles sparkle'. Coins bearing the likeness of Emperor Nerva (96-98 A.D.) provide evidence of the Romans' stay in Spa.
In the Middle Ages, the popularity of the Spa waters was reflected in the variety of legends which 'sprang up' on their medicinal and 'magical' properties. According to tradition, Spa is associated with the fame of Saint Remacle, a bishop and apostle of the untamed Ardennes, a mighty builder of monasteries and churches, a destroyer of idols, possessing power to purify fountains and to cause water to issue from sacred springs.
