To get around this touchy subject, I would suggest that next time in France or Spain you order wine ;-)

In France, I drink Evian or Vittel, or Badoit, and those are not just tap water, as far as I know. It's funny but I was dining in a place on Lake Geneva and was in view of Evian, and yet they would only serve one cheap brand of Swiss bottled water, not Evian, and it was basically tap water, I think.

I came upon the plant in Evian les Bains where this water is bottled, I assume. After trying many bottled waters over the years this is the only brand I trust. Evian is on the bank of Lac Léman (aka Lake Geneva). I don't know if the water comes directly from the lake or from an adjacent well. I swimmed in Lac Léman. This water comes straight down from Mont Blanc. It is the sweetest water I have ever tasted.

I order tap water, mostly because I like sparkling water. Also, a lot of tap water tastes like garbage. Then again, I think Evian tastes like garbage, too...
