Cabreiroa was born in Verin (Ourense). That is where you can find the spring from where the Corporacion Hijos de Rivera waters flow: Cabreiroá Natural and Magma de Cabreiroá. Two uniquely characterised brands whose source lies hundreds of metres below the surface after a long mineralisation process, and which Hijos de Rivera bottles in the plant located in this area of Ourense.
The beneficial properties of the Cabreiroa Spring are well known since the start of the 20th century. In 1906 the Nobel Laureate for Physiology or Medicine, Ramon y Cajal, certified the mineral-medicinal value of Cabreiroa water and it made possible to create a spa hotel which nowadays is unused, but which was open until the 1970s. Besides the spa, there is a kiosk, which houses the fountain where visitors and local inhabitants have gone since the end of the 19th century, the bottling plant and the offices.
Hijos de Rivera has bottled the Cabreiroa water since the 1900s when the brewery decided to expand its business in the mineral water sector by becoming a part of the Aguas de Cabreiroa company. Currently, Hijos de Rivera owns the Verin plant where 50 million litres are bottled annually.
