The name Birštonas was first mentioned in reports made by Teutonic Order scouts in 1382 as a “homestead near saltwater”, but it wasn’t until the middle of the 19th century that the first patients were successfully treated in Birštonas. In 1878, Doctor Ivan Radecki discovered a strongly mineralized source near the Nemunas riverbed. This source was called Viktoria, and later, according to a proposal made by J. Tumas-Vaižgantas, it was called Vytautas. Studies showed that the water contained plenty of useful minerals.
In 1924, the bottling of Vytautas water started
For the first time in Lithuania, industrial bottling of Vytautas mineral water commenced. As the waters of this region were widely known for their useful properties, it was decided to build a factory in Birštonas so that people could enjoy the water with unique properties beyond the resort.

A water bottling line with the highest capacity in Lithuania was installed, increasing daily production by 5 times. After the production facilities were upgraded, 37,000 bottles were bottled a day.
