Mondariz confirms its title as “Best Water in the World” by receiving its second Diamond Taste Award


It is the only brand in the world to achieve 2 Diamonds from Brussels' iTQi.

The sparkling mineral water and the still mineral water received 3 stars, which is the highest rating, during a blind tasting performed by over two hundred experts from the catering sector.

 During the activities held at the Alimentaria Food Exhibition, Aguas de Mondariz confirmed its title as best still mineral water in the world after receiving its second Diamond Taste Award granted by Brussels' prestigious International Taste & Quality Institute (iTQi). This award confirms Mondariz water's unsurpassable quality and properties.

The event was held on Monday, April 25, at Barcelona's Gran Vía trade show facilities, during the Alimentaria 2016 food exhibition. It was presided over by the Belgian Consul, Mr. Didier Verwaerde, and was also attended by a number of the prestigious sommeliers that are part of the jury: Rosa Vila, Meritxell Falgueras and Elisabeth Vidal, as well as the chef Koldo Royo. They all participated in the evaluation of the products presented by performing a blind tasting, without wrappers or containers so that the jury could not identify the brand of the water they tasted in order to guarantee the test's objectivity and impartiality.

Water tastings are considered to be one of the most complicated tests, demanding maximum concentration required to find all the hues. They are performed individually, which is why they are carried out first thing in the morning. Vila, Falgueras, and Vidal, the female sommeliers participating in the iTQi tastings, both explained that “after overcoming the challenge of water tastings, you can relax and taste any other product.

Last year the Mondariz still mineral water received the Taste Award, which is the maximum recognition granted by the ITQi, after receiving the maximum score by the Superior Taste Award for 7 years in a row. With this second Diamond, Mondariz confirms its title as “Best Water in the World,” becoming at the same time the only brand in the world to receive two titles in the category.

International Taste & Quality Institute

The International Taste & Quality Institute (iTQi) in Brussels is an independent organisation that consists of chefs and sommeliers from different countries. It was created with the purpose of analysing, judging, and promoting the best foods and beverages from all over the world. The Superior Taste Awards were created with the aim of honouring the best tastes and most superb products.
