Pineo named tastiest water in the world


When we taste something, we actually use three senses: we taste, we look and we smell. With water, the difference is only very subtle. This makes us think that every water is similar, whereas water has a wide palette of flavours.

Water is not just water, just as wine is not just wine. Water’s origin, mineral composition, bottling and packaging all contribute to its unique flavour.


German consumer organisation “Stiftung Warentest” was clear in its verdict when they tested 20 brands of water for taste and flavour defects. Only Pineo received ‘very good’ (view the report here). The unique location of the source, the state-of-the-art filling line, the respect for nature, the glass bottles, the nature-friendly rinsing process…At Pineo, we do everything for a perfect taste and the ultimate experience of this natural mineral water.
