Badoit Water in TO?

orangewasabi Jun 26, 2007 01:37 PM

I had pretty much resigned myself to no more Badoit until returning to France. But a recent trip to Napa surprised me with a Badoit (green) so I am renewing my quest.

Does anyone know if this delicious water is available in TO? Either to purchase retail or to order?

    This doesn't answer your question, but it is always available for sale in Ottawa's Italian grocery store "La Bottega" in the Bytown Market a few metres east of the back entrance of the Bay & it's always on the menu at Montréal's "O'thym" restaurant. 1112 de Maisonneuve E, so it is available in Canada

      tundra in the hilton serves it. charton hobbs distributes it-call them (905) 238-3222 to find out who carries it

      I was at McEwan (Shops at Don Mills) recently and they had quite a few bottles there.

        Update... McEwan doesn't carry it anymore. I don't blame them - not many would want to pay more for water than alcohol. However, my missus needs more Badoit to satisfy her cravings. Anyone know where's the cheapest place I can find Badoit around the city?

          I went to the Whole Foods in Oakville, they said that it isn't selling well and they probably won't be ordering more. Everybody please ask them to continue selling it...

            On a whim, drove from Rochester, NY to the Whole Foods in Oakville Ontario. Sure enough a lovely case of Badoit (green) water is now mine! The bottles are a limited edition with a lacing of bubbles up the sides of the bottle and 2011 etched in green. I talked to a manager about keeping it in supply and offering to order cases regularly.

              Wow, did you drive all the way to Oakville to get water? Is it that good water? I have seen it around a lot lately but never tried that brand. Saw it at Whole Foods, the small gourmet boutique downtown Oakville (corner of Allan/Lakeshore) and the Organic Boutique on Queen West (around Shaw)...

              I will have to give it a try soon

                Yes I did! - I'd seen it on this thread, and we were already in Niagara Falls for the afternoon, so it was only about a 40 min drive to Oakville. I don't know if it's THAT special, but it's so nostalgic for me. I don't care for BIG carbonation, but Badoit is very delicate.

            Wow, I was just thinking about this the other day! Thanks for asking.

              Have seen it at Pusateri's in the past

                I called Pusateri's and they don't have it, but I recommended that they get some. :-)

                  I did some more checking. It's distributed in Canada by Aqua Distribution http://www.aqua-store.com/AquaDistrib... .
                  I called Whole Foods and confirmed that they have some.

                    OB, thanks so much. You just did all the calls I was going to do.
                    I assume you called the Hazelton WF?
