*Tumai Water, a charity brand from Martinsburg, West Virginia, claimed vistory at the Eighteenth Annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting contest last weekend.

Other winners included Great Blue of Federalsburg in Maryland which won Gold for Best Purified Drinking Water while Slavus Mineralwasser from Germany achieved top honours in the Carbonated Bottled Water category. The public voted Mist Premium Spring Water of Vanleer from Tennessee as the People’s Choice award for best packaging design.
water innovation magazine was invited to participate alongside other media on the judging panel for the event held in the historic spa town of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. Organisers claim the contest is the largest and longest running blind water tasting competition in the world. Over 100 entrants participated in five categories which also included municipal water suppliers.
Watermaster Arthur von Wiesenberger, noted expert and author who chaired the awards ceremony, commented: “Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting contest proved yet again that it was the granddaddy of water tastings and it was great to see a West Virginian brand gain some recognition too.”
Full results will be detailed in the next issue of water innovation magazine.
