About Sanpellegrino Sparkling Fruit Beverages
S.Pellegrino® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water, which dates back as early as the 12th century, became part of the Nestlé Waters Canada family of brands in 1999. With a bit of intuition and luck, mineral water was used to produce a new sparkling fruit beverage called Aranciata. Made up of a combination of simple and healthful ingredients like Sicilian oranges, S.Pellegrino® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water and sugar, it was successfully launched in 1932. In the 1950s, another uniquely bitter-tasting beverage, Chinotto was created.
The beverage took its name from a particular citrus fruit that, outside of China, grows only in Sicily, on a plantation located on the slopes of Etna. They later added Limonata, a tart-sweet sparkling lemon beverage. On April 20, 1970, the company changed its name to Sanpellegrino SpA and continued to grow throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In 1999, Sanpellegrino SpA became part of Nestlé Waters. Today, S.Pellegrino® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water is the number two sparkling bottled water brand in Canada and is the brand of choice within Fine Dining Restaurants.
