Some bottled waters are just better than others, and the BSIWT's judges know. They are trained in a similar fashion as wine testers to investigate each water brand's appearance, smell, and taste to determine overall flavour and quality. Here are this years top five winners:

  1. Fengari Platinum, Platinum Class Mineral Water, Athens, Greece
  2. Castle Rock Water, Dunsmuir, CA
  3. Halstead Springs Water, Speedwell, TN
  4. Jackson Springs Natural Premium Spring Water, Middlebor, MB, Canada
  5. Capi, Victoria, Australia

If you're still thirsty, you can also see who won the best sparkling water, best purified drinking water, and best local tap water at the link below.

    A grand total of 45 bottled waters were tested, some of which were just different companies bottling from the same water source.
    It should be noted that CAPI was the only Australian entrant too. On the other hand, Australia did beat out New Zealand.

    Yeh, because bottled water is just filtered tap water.... and Melbourne has very good tap water.

    so skip the bottle and drink from the tap.

    Agreed. It's far better for the environment, and far cheaper. There really isn't any excuse to be buying bottled water in Australia.
