Water, Water [from] Everywhere at the 21st Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting

Posted by  | March 1, 2011  at 5:23 PM  


Last weekend at The Country Inn at Berkeley Springs, both judges and the general public were given the opportunity to sample some of the world's best waters. The 21st International Water Tasting in Berkeley Springs, WV, presented a diverse sampling of waters from bubbling Bosnian varieties to samplings from local spigots. 

Waters were divided into 4 categories for the official judging which included Municipal, Purified, Bottled, and Sparkling. Judges were served numbered samples, and each sample was judged on clarity, odor, taste, feel, and aftertaste--additionally, sparkling waters were critiqued on carbonation levels, ranging from aggressive to fine bubbles.  New to this year's tasting, and favorites of both judges and attendees, were the rain water entries in the purified water division. Virginian Natural from nearby Charlottesville, VA, placed 5th and Texan Independence Water from League City, TX, which took home a first place, gold medal win! 

In keeping the the all-inclusive atmosphere, the winners of the Packaging Design Award were determined by the people. Everyone was encouraged to inspect the entries and rank their top five choices based on package appeal, graphics, structure, and function.  
People's Choice Packaging Finalists

Mike & Luisa Peters snagged waters
 from as far as New Zealand!
Of course, the highlight of the evening for many attendees is the infamous "Water Rush" at the end of the night. After the awards are through, the crowd poises with bags, boxes, and even suitcases to await the countdown 'til they can rush the water display and take home as many of the bottles as they can carry! As you can see from the video below, this year was rather orderly, but I've heard some pretty crazy stories about past Water Rushes.

Special thanks to event organizers Jeanne Mozier & Jill Klein Roe and to Acting Water Master Michael Cervin of Bottled Water Web.

I couldn’t tell you of the Smashbox Primer Water makes your makeup last longer when applied before your makeup, to be honest it just makes you feel professional and like you are doing something but in terms of making your makeup look fresh then it ticks all of the boxes.reverse osmosis water filter
