1888 - Gerolsteiner's starting shot

During drilling operations, mining director Wilhelm Castendyck discovers water containing carbonic acid. He founds the Gerolsteiner Sprudel GmbH and bottles Gerolsteiner mineral water for the first time – in clay jugs.

In the founding year, the mineral water from Gerolstein already boasts an advocate that is still known today: Gentleman Privy Aulic Councilor Prof. Dr. R. Fresenius recommends Gerolsteiner due to its high natural carbonic acid content.


1895 - Gerolsteiner Down Under

Gerolsteiner receives its first purchase order from Australia. By postcard, the company Büsch & Heiliger from Sydney orders Gerolsteiner mineral water by the crateload. Whether or not all of the clay jugs survived the long sea voyage is unknown.

We recommend a consumption of at least two liters per day and refer to the great importance of a varied and well-balanced nutrition as well as a healthy way of life.
