How a Local Water Company Placed 5th in an International Water Taste Competition
Every February in West Virginia the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting competition is held. This event known as the “Academy Awards of Water” brings in water from all over the world. This year, the competition had competitors from Canada, New Zealand, China, Japan, Colombia, and many more countries around the world. Included in those entries was Waterfy Me located in Gaithersburg, MD. The tastings are broken up into different categories including purified water and sparkling water. The competition was fierce – each company wanting to earn the honor of placing in this prestigious competition. Even being in the top 10 shows the sheer quality and taste of the water. After rounds of tasting the results were out – Waterfy Me placed 5th in the world among purified water competitors.
How we got here?
First, lets address the elephant in the room – is there seriously a water tasting competition. Yes, yes there is. While many people think water doesn’t have a taste and they can’t tell the difference, there is a lot that goes into making a great water. Even though it’s subtle, water does have a taste. We can all taste the difference between tap water and bottled water right? But not all bottled waters are created equal. At Waterfy Me, we go through a vigorous process to create a clean, refreshing, delicious bottle of water. The complex Waterfy Me 12-step purification process includes carbon filtration, ion exchange, reverse osmosis, and ozonation. We know that many people don’t know what reverse osmosis is – so let’s keep it simple: we remove 99.5% of the impurities in tap water, while still keeping all essential minerals. That translates to better tasting water. Not only does purified water taste better but it comes with health benefits as well.
