Germans are better know for their fondness of beer. Perhaps for this reason Germans prefer their mineral waters carbonated, and often with additional carbonation referred to as “Sprudel”. And Germany is also where the term “spritzer” comes from, referring to the practice of drinking wine diluted with carbonated water. The Germans addiction to fizz is also the reason most mineral waters in Germany still largely come packaged in glass and, due to distribution costs, why regional waters retain their popularity as opposed to national brands in other countries. Like the rest of Europe though, the interest in mineral waters dates at least to Roman times, and Germany has a rich history and tradition of spas and mineral water appreciation.
