A brief note for a long history
Borsec springs are known as one of the oldest commercially exploited sources of premium natural mineral water in the world. Natural mineral water from Borsec (Transilvania) has been appreciated since the ancient Dacian times more than 2000 years ago. The Roman emporium discovered the springs after they conquered Dacia by the Emperor Trajan. Archaeological discoveries show that the springs have been known and used ever since.
Records from 1594 show that the water was transported by carts in wooden casks to the royal courts in Europe. At the beginning of the 18th century, the mineral water was bottled in sealed pitchers which were then put into sacks and transported on horseback. By the end of the 18th century, the curative powers of the mineral waters made Borsec famous, attracting those who needed to take the waters to cure their ailments. First huts were built, then chalets and then bathing establishments which made it possible for many patients to take residence in the small village cure the illnesses that they suffered from. Records from 1767 say that “Borsec is the place where desperate patients from the country and from abroad gather during the summer.”
In 1806 it began the industrial bottling of Borsec natural mineral water. In 1873 Emperor Franz Josef (one of the greatest and the longest-reigning emperor of Austria) awarded a Gold Medal to Borsec naturally sparkling mineral water and crowned it with the title the “Queen of Mineral Waters”.
In 2006, Borsec celebrated 200 years of industrial bottling.
About the spring
In the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania, the small spa town of Borsec has been listed in the register of historical monuments. The reason is the very old source of its famous mineral-rich water, which made the sub-alpine town one of the most renown curative spas in Europe.
Save the Earth effort
Borsec uses a lightweight neck and short caps for PET bottles. A lighter preform together with the short cap reduces the PET consumption with 7.5% with a great positive impact on the environment. We do also encourage Borsec funs to dispose of your bottles responsible in the recycling bins provided at various locations in Singapore.
