About the Fine Waters Tasting Competition

The Fine Waters Tasting Competition is organised by FineWaters and the Fine Water Society, the leading global authorities on premium bottled waters. They have developed the industry standard for conducting professional water tastings.

The competition recognises that, like wine, premium waters have their own distinct terroir, character and sense of place. The event aims to celebrate the unique qualities of the world’s best waters and educate consumers about the fine water category.

The TASTE & DESIGN AWARDS 2024 will be held in collaboration with the renowned Basque Culinary Center in Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain. An esteemed panel of five international water sommeliers and experts will blind taste and evaluate the waters based on their unique properties and taste profiles.

What Makes Beloka Water Special

Beloka Water is a genuinely remarkable water thanks to its pristine source and unique mineral composition. Our water is drawn from an ancient spring on the edge of the unspoilt Kosciuszko National Park in New South Wales, Australia.

The water is naturally filtered through 500 million year old geological strata, giving it a pure, clean taste and a perfectly balanced mineral content. This medium minerality provides a subtle flavour and a silky-smooth mouthfeel.

We take great care to preserve the natural purity and integrity of our water. It is bottled at the source, with only the finest sparkling varieties receiving the addition of light carbonation. We are committed to sustainability, using recycled glass bottles and sourcing all our packaging materials within Australia.

The result is an exceptionally fresh, crisp and pure tasting water with a clean, smooth finish. It is a deliciously refreshing water that is a joy to drink on its own and a perfect partner to fine food and wine.

Our Commitment to Quality

At Beloka Water, quality is at the heart of everything we do. From the careful management of our pristine water source to our sustainable bottling and packaging practices, we are dedicated to producing the finest water possible.

Entering the Fine Waters Tasting Competition is an opportunity for us to benchmark our water against other world-class premium waters and to receive expert feedback. The competition’s rigorous judging criteria and blind tasting format provide an objective assessment of water quality and taste.

We are confident that Beloka Water will perform strongly at the 2024 competition. Our water’s exceptional purity, balanced minerality and smooth taste set it apart as one of the world’s finest premium waters.


We cannot wait to showcase Beloka Water at the Fine Waters TASTE & DESIGN AWARDS 2024 in San Sebastián, Spain. It is a privilege to be competing alongside the world’s most prestigious premium waters and to have our water evaluated by leading industry experts.

We would like to thank our customers for their ongoing support and for appreciating the unique qualities that make Beloka Water so special. We are proud to be representing Australia at this international event and to be sharing our pristine spring water with the world.

We look forward to the competition and to continuing our commitment to producing the finest, purest tasting water possible. Stay tuned for more updates from San Sebastián in April 2024!
