Under the established brand of Classeq is Eau de Vie – a purified water system for use in hotels, bars and restaurants where users can bottle and brand their own water.

Offering the ‘complete package’ in on-site bottled water systems for caterers, Eau de Vie turns mains water into a profitable and eco-friendly alternative to bottled mineral water. 

Classeq prides itself on the fresh taste and reliability of Eau de Vie and its growing client list, including some of the UK’s top restaurants and hotels, is testament to this. The system filters and chills the mains supply, taking out impurities to produce either still or sparkling water that can be dispensed into stylish Eau de Vie branded bottles. 

The filtered water system eliminates expensive transportation of bottles and costly recycling of non-reusable bottles and packaging, meaning that using Eau de Vie is a cost-effective solution. 

Classeq’s Eau de Vie bottled water system won a prestigious Green Apple Award 2011, underlining both the functionality and the eco credentials of the system.  

Eau de Vie supplies a range of units designed for different needs and a variety of locations. The units fall into three categories: Table Top, Free‐Standing (to fit into existing counters or base units) and Remote Cassette (to fit on shelves or in tighter spaces). Like the Eau de Vie bottles, the system’s dispensers are attractive and look good front of house or behind the bar. There is a choice of sizes available, with capacities ranging from 45 to 300 litres per hour. 

Paul Crowley, Marketing Development Manager at Classeq, said: “Using on-site reusable bottles filled with fresh, filtered water is the most environmentally friendly way to serve chilled water from a glass bottle. Eau de Vie tastes just as good as branded mineral water, and allows restaurateurs to charge a premium for Eau de Vie while offering it as a less expensive alternative to standard bottled mineral water.” 

Classeq offers full pre- and after-sales support, from site-survey to commissioning, staff training and on-going maintenance. Spare accessories include: six-bottle carriers, branded 750ml and 500ml glass bottles, shrink wrap seals, bottle tops, branded paper cups and dispenser, sanitising spray bottles and filters. The Eau de Vie systems are available to rent or buy.
