Topo Chico, since 1895, is extracted from the spring at the foot of the Cerro del Topo Chico. It differs from other waters by both its content of salts and minerals, as its characteristic carbonation.
A replica of the spring told in legend, is located inside the premises of the Topo Chico Company, from which thermal mineral water flows from the same springs of the Cerro del Topo Chico.
Water from the underground rivers that feed the spring is drawn by pumps. Extracted water is then purified by various physical processes, such as a filter system of stone and gravel and ultraviolet lamps, which ensures maximum purity without any loss of its natural properties.
The water is completely purified without any loss of natural minerals. Next it gets carbonated, which produces the famous Topo Chico bubbles. Lastly, the water is bottled and prepared for distribution.
Thanks to modern production processes, we are able to produce up to 800 bottles per minute.
