Have you heard of the story of the Aztec King, King Moctezuma I Ilhuicamina, who sought a cure for his ill daughter? He followed rumors of a restorative springs, deep in a mountain range, held secret from society. The king found this source of mineral water eventually; he took his daughter to bathe and drink the clean sparkling liquid. She was cured, and regained her happiness, strength, and health.
Topo Chico still uses this source of water today, as they have been doing since the 1890’s. The enchanted springs in the Cerro del Silla mountains near Monterrey, Mexico is exclusive and locked-down from visitors in order to preserve the water’s purity. The earth’s tectonics have blessed this land with quarries of limestone, which contributes to the mineral properties of this water.
Don’t get it twisted — the “Little Mole” springs provides Topo Chico with water that has real health benefits. Its minerals are refreshing and contribute pure contents with every sip. In fact, Topo Chico provided water for some of the first Coca-Cola recipes.
The glass bottle is tinted based on the flavor… available in transparent to green. I don’t always have a bottle opener with me, but the heritage is what’s behind the design. It’s been the same and has been a staple, so why change it? Oh, and speaking of availability, only about 28 states in the USA have Topo Chico. If you’re lucky enough, get some, and you won’t go back to anything else for a mixer, refresher, or hydrating water.
