BURNABY, BC, June 21, 2017 /CNW/ - Canada's Whistler Glacial Spring Water receives the coveted 3-star "Superior Taste Award" from the International Taste and Quality Institute (iTQi), Brussels, 14th June 2017.
The "Superior Taste Award" is judged annually by the iTQi, a leading independent association of Michelin-starred Chefs and Sommeliers. In May of 2017 the iTQi evaluated the quality of food and beverage products from more than 700 companies from 79 countries with the awards formally presented in June 2017.
Comparable to the Michelin guide of gastronomy, the iTQi Superior Taste Award is not a competition but judges each product on its own merits. Products are blind tested by a panel of culinary experts focusing on appearance, smell, texture, flavor and mouth-feel. Only those products having received a mark of over 90% will be granted the highest award, three golden stars and the designation "Exceptional Taste". Canada's Whistler Glacial Spring Water excelled in each of these categories, proving its quality and taste is exceptional and as a result has been awarded with the highest Superior Taste and Quality designation.
"Canadian and International consumers have been enjoying the taste and quality of Whistler Water for many years. We are honoured to have our glacial spring water endorsed by the iTQi and by Michelin-starred Chefs and Sommeliers." says Whistler Water Inc.'s COO Bruce Gemmell.
