Almost a century later, a group of enthusiastic citizens of Selters organized exploratory drillings to get to the bottom of the legend of the mineral water springs. There was jubilation in 1896 when, during one of the drillings, a huge fountain of crystal-clear water sprang from the depths below Laneburg castle.
A first well was built, and was named “Selters-Sprudel-Augusta- Victoria” after the wife of the last German Kaiser. The precious mineral water was shipped around the world in unique, heavy earthenware jugs – and Selters became a byword for premium mineral water.
From Saint Petersburg to New York and from London to Florence, delicious Selters soon became popular in the highest circles. Even today, mineral water is often simply known as “Seltzsuyu” in Turkish, “Selterskaja” in Russian and “Agua de seltz” in Portuguese.
According to a legend, the god of the sun and the mother of the four winds, was situated at the same source of water. The water from that source was named “Sole”, which means the Sun. The source of this water has many mysterious legends, one of which is 1000 BC: “Nuvolento population, where a well-known water source is located, was almost completely destroyed by the plague disease. Monks from neighbor church were visiting houses one by one in order to assess the spread of the plague. The answer ” Ego Sum ” (I am) meant that the disaster has passed by the house.
After the end of epidemic the monks came to conclusion, that the family wich had access to the water source, successfully survived the plague epidemic. Taking into consideration such vital qualities of water, the population of Nuvolento, after the events, named the source of water “the source of a long life”.
