Greece’s ZARO’S wins Best Bottled water in the World Award


ZARO’S natural mineral bottled water from Crete has won Gold in the best ‘Bottled Water in the World’ category at the 27th Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting, which is known as the Academy Awards of water.

ZARO’S water is bottled from water sources located at the mountain of Psiloritis in Crete and was evaluated by 11 judges — internationally  known as water connoisseurs — who took into consideration smell, taste and texture.

“It was another wonderful year for the longest running and largest water tasting in the world,” said von Wiesenberger. “Berkeley Springs is the Academy Awards of water.”

The eleven media judges selected by Klein Rone included representatives from various regional and national media including television and online magazines. They were instructed by von Wiesenberger to look, sniff and taste each water under guidelines similar to those in a wine tasting.

The waters were rated for each attribute including appearance (it should be clear – or slightly opaque for glacial waters), aroma (there should be none), taste (it should taste clean), mouth feel (it should feel light), aftertaste (it should leave you thirsty for more). Waters were tasted in four separate flights over two days.

“The judges job is crucial and so is their training,” said Mozier. “We present all our judges with a diploma designating them as a Certified Water Taster.”

The 28th annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting is scheduled for Saturday, February 24, 2018.
