Water like wine deserves attention

BELOKA Water has taken out double gold at the Fine Waters International Water Tasting Competition, Taste and Design Awards, held in April.

The company, based at Bella Vista, took the top awards in both the still medium minerality content class and the added carbonation medium minerality content class.

“This builds on our earlier success in 2017, when we were lucky enough to win gold for sparkling medium minerality content water at the Finewaters competition at Guangzhou, in China,” sales manager Denis Griffiths said.

“We know that Beloka has an exceptional taste that’s enjoyed by thousands of our customers, so it’s fantastic that its flavour is recognised in an international arena.

“This year the FineWaters competition was held in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. With an impressive pedigree when it comes to mineral water, Sweden was a fantastic choice.

“Many of the biggest names in the mineral water world were present, eager to see how their water compared with the other entrants.

“Judging was undertaken by a team of experienced water sommeliers, each with a different speciality.

“Jeanette Fili, for example, has a particular interest in pairing the right water with a wine in order to give an exceptional taste experience.

“Rita Palandrani is a well-known water promoter as well as an expert on the role of water in ancient cultures.

“Michael Mascha has written a widely acclaimed guide to mineral waters and is a founding member of FineWaters.

“Sam Wu was the first certified water sommelier in Singapore and Michael Tanousis’s passion is demystifying the terminology surrounding fine waters so that everybody can articulate their water preference easily and clearly.

“We are proud of our Beloka water: not only is 100 per cent Australian, but it’s also a water which has been sourced from a spring located on the eastern border of the Kosciuszko National Park.

“With a pleasant mineral content and benefiting from exceptional purity, our Beloka water is carefully bottled to encapsulate its fresh, unspoiled taste.

“The sparkling water has nothing added except carbon dioxide. This gives the same great flavour as the still Beloka, but with the pleasant addition of some bubbles.”

Griffiths said Beloka was the perfect accompaniment to a meal, either alone or paired with a good wine, but also worked well as a mixer with an alcoholic beverage, as a pleasant addition to breakfast or served for hydration whenever it’s needed.
