Having a wealthy heritage in water way back to 1748 the moment 16-year-old George Washington went to the Berkeley Springs as part of Lord Fairfax’s evaluating staff, there isn’t any far better place compared to town of Berkeley Springs to put together a water tasting contest.
Just about every February ever since 1990, a number of judges consisting of the press from across the world sip intercontinental waters in three classifications: municipal, non-carbonated bottled and sparkling.
This year’s tournament acquired 100 listings. Who’d have possibly thought that Rumania’s Harghita would be given its name the most impressive non-carbonated bottled water of the season?
Experts examine water for clearness, scent, taste and even aftertaste. “Aftertaste is probably the most important,” states coordinator J.W. Rone. “When I get a glass of water with a bad aftertaste, well, it just ruins the whole water experience.” This particular once-a-year occasion, much like the water, is absolutely free for the 500 men and women that attend each and every year.
When: February every year
Where: Berkeley Springs, WV, U.S.A.
