When Frogs and Rosbifs Unite.

When Frogs and Rosbifs Unite.

Help! It was a British invasion – well, just one Brit, and some 60 years before the actual British Invasion, but still a very important turn of events. Sir John Harmsworth, the brother of successful and very wealthy English newspaper magnates, met Dr. Perrier while studying French near Les Bouillens. In a quick hello, goodbye Harmsworth bought the source, renamed it PERRIER® as homage to the doctor, and began bottling the water in its distinctive green bottles. PERRIER®, the drink, was now destined to be here, there and everywhere.

A Water Like No Other

It was time to break the French market like a tasty baguette ­– full force, but with a sophisticated touch. To do so, the Vergèze bottling plant went all out by reorganizing itself and doubling in size, all while promoting Perrier’s classy image as the champagne of table waters. The sparkling water soon became synonymous with elegance, joy, and celebration in France. All these characteristics were one of a kind for natural spring water, and ultimately what led the little green bottle to break through its homeland’s tough crust.
