Water tasting competition set for Feb. 21 in West Virginia
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — For the 25th year, water suppliers around the world will compete for the title of best-tasting tap.
The Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting is set for Feb. 21 at The Country Inn. It’s the world’s largest and longest-running water tasting competition.
A media panel will judge entries in categories such as municipal waters, purified drinking water, still and sparkling bottled waters, plus a public vote for best packaging.
Entries come from across the United States and as far away as New Zealand and Korea.
Defending champion Clearbrook, British Columbia, is entered again in the municipal category, as is Santa Ana, California, last year’s second-place finisher.
Among the 34 entries in the bottled water category is defending champion Castle Rock Water from Dunsmuir, California.
