Aussie sparkling water picked as world's best

SYDNEY, July 4 (Xinhua) -- Sparkling water from an Australian beverage producer located in the Snowy Mountains region in the State of New South Wales (NSW) has been named as world's best sparkling water on Tuesday at the International Fine Water Tasting Competition in China.

A panel of five internationally-renowned water sommeliers chose Beloka Water out of 104 other entries, due to its extremely high quality.

"Beloka Water has demonstrated on the world stage what incredible water we have here in NSW and to set the bar so high at a global event is outstanding," a minister for regional NSW, John Barilaro, said in a statement obtained by Xinhua.

"Beloka Water is 100 percent Australian - everything from the caps, labels, and boxes are sourced here - and it's bottled using recycled glass in a sustainable manner."

Barilaro believes the success of the company will build on the great progress made by Aussie producers that are already exporting into China.

NSW Trade and Industry Minister Niall Blair said the free trade deal with China has opened the door to a market with a huge appetite for high quality products which will continue to grow.

"China is NSW's largest two-way trading partner in goods and a major focus for our food and beverage producers," Blair said.

Owner of Beloka Joe Commisso, who has been exporting to China for one year, acknowledged that being named the winner of the world's best sparkling water was a huge windfall for the business.

"We've been well and truly recognised on the international stage so we hope to see Australian fine dining establishments adopt our local premium water over well-known imported brands," Commisso said.
