You can apparently buy it in Schlieren just outside Zurich so, if you have a car, you could drive there and back to pick up the water. (slight sarcasm involved there).

I hate to say this but buying mineral water shipped from other countries is so last century and a pretty bad show.
To be honest, buying mineral water at all in bottles is not really what people ought to do nowadays - especially in Switzerland.

We were in Venice for a few days last October and my son found a map with all the numerous public water taps marked on it. We didn't buy a single bottle of water whilst we were there and the Venetian authorities were positively encouraging it.

Having said that, my wife bought some bottles of Perrier over Christmas so we're guilty as charged! It's a mindset.

A few bottles of sparkling water don't really count, if you are big consumer then makes sens to buy a Soda club machine but for occasional use buying it is the only way.



Normal still water you got to be totally brain dead to buy this in Switzerland, tap water is really good and why bother with all the crap of picking it up in a super market, hauling it home and them disposing of the empties ?

Re: Uliveto Mineral Water

I don't get these single use bottles. We re-use ours all the time. Perhaps the OP should get one bottle of Uliveto, and just keep refilling it (maybe add a little soda to emulate the fizz), thereby maintaining the image they wish to project.

If you have to have fizzy water, why not get a local brand? Not "naturally" fizzy, but so what?

Re: Uliveto Mineral Water

I like San Rubinetto water the most. You can get it at the kitchen sink.

Maybe you can get a soda stream if you want fizzy water.

Re: Uliveto Mineral Water

I also don't know anything about Uliveto but want to virtue signal my green credentials on a cold Sunday afternoon: I use a cold mirror to collect the steam when cooking full grain, fair trade spaghetti on a home made solar oven.
Lick the mirror to avoid using harmful detergents washing bio bamboo bowls.

Properties? ughh...it's wet, inorganic, has one oxygen atom, two hydrogen and for all intents and purposes it's exactly the same as the rest of the water out there.

You ain't got a clue! Diluted with tap water it does wonders!
You gotta get the potentisation right though.


sorry, OP. This is EF. You get the answers but as revenue for the members, there's gotta be some fun as well. Enjoy your Uliveto.

Re: Uliveto Mineral Water

For those who speak German, Kassensturz of 21.1.2020 brought a report on VOSS mineral water from Norway, Fr. 7.80 the bottle, artesian - yet actually not which is why Voss may not call it that in Norway.

Funny - or actually not, depending on your attitude - to watch.
