It is forbidden to sell Borjomi mineral water in Russia today because, according to the official version, it does not correspond to the quality standards set in Russia. Let us see what kind of water it is and how it is produced.
The Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park is located in central Georgia and is part of the lesser Caucasus. The park is one of the largest in Europe, it covers more than 85,000 hectares of native forest and sub-alpine and alpine meadows, home to rare species of flora and fauna.
The composition of the water remains the same during 100 years the fact being proved by experts and regular tests. The current water is identical to the one from the first factory of Grand Russian Prince Mikhail Romanov in the end of the 19th century.
In the 19th century the place was developed by the ruling Romanov family into a domestic spa resort similar to Baden-Baden, etc. The Park of mineral water was there in 1850 already. Later the first pouring factory started to function.
Borjomi did not lose its popularity in the Soviet times. Stalin liked the water as well and they used it for every occasion in the Kremlin.
In 1961 thousands of bottles with Borjomi were exported abroad. In 1990-1995 its production dropped considerably due to the economic crisis in Georgia. But in 1995 Georgian Glass and Mineral Water Company re-started production of Borjomi at two factories increasing the output twice.
This is where Borjomi water starts.
Borjomi-2 factory produces still water supplied in plastic bottles.
Original containers are similar to the IPnone in size.
Bottles are made of the containers.
The bottles are then filled with water.
Every group has 8 bottles in it.
Now let’s visit Borjomi-2 factory. By the way, Borjomi was one of the applicant cities for the Olympic Games 2014.
Borjomi water is born 8000 m deep. It is of a volcanic origin, is saturated with carbon dioxide and can reach the surface on its own with warm air. No pumps are needed. On its way from the bottom of the earth the water gets enriched with 60 different minerals contained in the volcanics of the Caucasian mountains.
The water that reaches the surface is filled with carbon dioxide but some of it is still added later as CO2 is a natural preservative and flavor enhancer. The mineral water contains an average amount of carbon dioxide just like it was 100 years ago.
Only new bottles are used every time.
There is a mark of the deer on the label and the bottle is of a typical blue-greenish color.
No additional preservatives and minerals are added.
The water is exported to 40 countries of the world.
After abundant amount of wine drank in Georgia only Borjomi water can help one’s organism to get cleaned from the wastes.
