Aigua de València origin story

According to the writer María Ángeles Arazo in her book Valencia Noche, the Café Madrid de Valencia was frequented at that time by a group of Basque travellers that used to order "Agua de Bilbao" (Spanish, "Water of Bilbao"), referring to the bar's best cava. Tired of always ordering the same thing, they challenged the owner to offer them something new and he suggested that they try the "Agua de Valencia". They agreed to try what Gil made, and liking it, they continued to drink it in later visits.

For a decade the drink was known only to a small group of clients and it was not until the 1970s that it started to become known in the wider Valencian nightlife. Since then, it has grown to be a very popular drink.

Constante Gil left the bar in 2000, and dedicated himself to painting "Tertulias de Café" (Spanish, "social gatherings of the café"), an homage to his experiences there. Gil died of a heart attack on 7 June 2009 in Valencia, Spain.
