We invite you to explore detail history of the company
1846
Mineral waters of the Birštonas town have been known since the Middle Ages. The beginning of settlement of the resort town is also linked to mineral waters. Sick people who were coming to Birštonas were staying in huts of locals and taking mineral water baths, as well as drinking the water. The name of Birštonas was first mentioned in 1382, in reports of intelligence officers of the order of the Crusaders as "a farmstead by salty water". The first patients were successfully cured in Birštonas in 1846. This year is considered to be the official date of establishment of the resort town.
1878
Dr. Radecki discovered a spring of water with high mineral content close to the bed of the river Nemunas in 1878. He was given the name Victoria, and later on prominent Lithuanian writer J.Tumas-Vaižgantas has suggested to call it Vytautas. Chemical analysis of the water carried out by the doctor in St. Petersburg showed that it has high content of useful minerals.
