The history of the Mattoni brand began in 1873 when Karlovy Vary native, originating from the Italian-Czech family Heinrich Mattoni (1830-1910) took over the mineral water production at the small spa town of Kyselka near Karlovy Vary in West Bohemia. Mattoni expanded the operations by building a modern bottling plant and establishing a distribution infrastructure to supply its product to spa guests in Kyselka and throughout Bohemia. In the 1880s, the Mattoni brand ranked among the best known in Europe. In 1910, 10 million bottles were exported to other countries.
At present, the Mattoni brand is owned by Mattoni 1873 company, the largest producer of mineral and spring water in the Czech Republic. Since 1994, the company is owned by the Italian business family Pasquale, it is based in Karlovy Vary. The Mattoni water comes in natural (sparkling, non-sparkling and gently sparking) and flavored varieties.
