    It's "Vossevangen", not Vossegangen. It even says so on the picture.

    Who would believe that this town is actually the origin of Voss water :P ?

    Actually, the Voss water doesn't come from Voss - it comes from an even smaller place called Vatnestraum, not far from Kristiansand in the south of Norway. Until recently, the inhabitants of Vatnestraum had exactly the same water to use in their showers and toilets.

    I guess they chose the name "Voss" because "Vatnestraum" might not be a perfect international brand name.

    Voss is not along the Hardanger fjord. It is situated on the shore of the lake called Vangsvatnet.

    @ LOC: Is there a typo in the title? (see comment #1)

    Yes, thanks. We'll fix the title in the source data and reload the description.
