The balance between delicate bubbles and flavour gives them their unmistakable taste. Today as in the past, the finest oranges and lemons are selected, ripened in the sun of the vast groves of Southern Italy and then picked by hand, at specific harvest time.

Distributed in over 120 countries in all five continents, all its products - from non-alcoholic aperitifs to soft drinks - represent quality excellence, especially its extraordinary mineral waters.

 

By virtue of their origins, a strong relationship with Italy, its culture and its traditions, San Pellegrino perfectly interpret Italian style as a synthesis of conviviality, well-being and fine dining. This luxury mineral water comes from a thermal spring at the bottom of a dolomite mountain wall in the Italian Alps. San Pellegrino's sources are three deep springs which emerge at 22 degrees C. The waters come from an aquifer 1,300 feet below the surface, where limestone and volcanic rocks impart unique minerals and trace elements. San Pellegrino’s water is mineralized through contact with the rocks and is heated by geothermal gradient until reaching the spring,
