Mineral water has flavor! For 64% of consumers the flavor of natural mineral water is the decisive factor in their purchase choice (source: IPSOS, FORSA), which is a good enough reason for all mineral water bottlers to have their mineral water thoroughly and expertly described to make differentiation possible.
The Water Sommelier Union is a valuable aid in this regard. Its sensory assessment committee of skilled tasters with experience in describing mineral waters will provide you with a detailed assessment to use when communicating with customers, whether in person or on your company website.
Our sensory assessment comprises the following criteria:
- Name of the mineral water bottler, source location and source name
- Characterization of the overall mineralization (including classification according to food regulations)
- Nutritional-physiological classification (according to mineral composition)
- Detailed sensory description (look, clarity, aroma, flavor, taste, mouthfeel, liveliness)
- Wine pairing
- Food pairing
