Every year more than 120 sparkling, bottled and municipal waters compete in the largest and longest running water tasting in the world, held in the historic spa town of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. The entries are judged by ten journalists and food critics. The contest is billed as the Academy Awards of water-tasting. Judges based their rankings on taste, odor, mouth feel, and aftertaste.
During the annual water tasting at the 1996 Festival of the Water in Berkeley Springs our Eldorado Natural Spring Water was judged the best tasting water in North America and third best in the world.
This honor was repeated during the 18th Annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting in 2008 when Eldorado Natural Spring Water took 2nd place in the non-carbonated bottled water category!
