Lake Baikal is situated in Southern Siberia, Russia. The depth of the lake reaches 1642 metres, the fact chosen for the brand.

1642 drinking waters are extracted from underground fresh water reservoirs near Baikal. There, deep underneath, the water is very well protected from any outside in influences. The environmental conditions in the underground reservoirs are stable, which is why the water retains its unique properties. The underground lakes are continuously replenished by water flowing through the mineral rich rocks of the eastern Sayan Mountains surrounding the lake. 

For thousands of years, water from mountain glaciers, rivers and streams has seeped from the mountains through the natural rock filters. Thus, the water is gradually saturated with the ancient power of the mountains’ minerals and micro elements including calcium, magnesium, and hydrocarbonates. 

The mountains surrounding Lake Baikal also contain minerals from semi-precious stones: jade, lazurite, rose quartz, and magnetite, which are conveyed to spring water. In turn, the water infuses its mineral wealth to man, enriching his body with beneficial micro elements and essential minerals. 

1642 stands for the depth of Baikal, the purity and mineral wealth. These natural drinking waters are carefully extracted from the underground reserves of great Mother Nature and are passed through fine filters which enable its original content to be preserved. 1642 waters feature the rich and endemic nature that Baikal possesses. 

1642 drinking waters are bottled by Irkutsk Mineral Water Bottling Plant, the leading bottling company in Siberia. These waters are available in PET bottles and meet international standards for drinking water quality.
