LOS ANGELES, July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Icelandic Glacial™ is excited to announce that it has been bestowed the highly-coveted Superior Taste Award for its new line of sparkling water, garnering three golden stars, the organization's top honor. The International Taste and Quality Institute (iTQi), made up of fifteen of the most prestigious European culinary and sommelier associates in the world, is the world's leading organization dedicated to testing and promoting superior food and drink products. This comes on the heels of Icelandic Glacial's recently announced expansion of its portfolio with the introduction of Icelandic Glacial Sparkling™.
Bottled at the same sustainable source in Iceland, the Ölfus Spring, Icelandic Glacial Sparkling is lightly carbonated with naturally low mineral content. It has a clean, crisp taste that provides a refined dining experience making it the perfect accompaniment for any meal. The iconic, award winning, glacier-sculpted BPA-free PET bottles will soon share the shelves with their sleek glass counterpart. The glass bottles feature a similar smooth glacier-sculpted design with screw-on metal caps.
"The new line of still and sparkling in glass is a game-changer for us," stated Jon Olafsson, Chairman & Co-Founder of Icelandic Glacial. "The glass bottles provide a premium look for dressing up a dinner party, an alternative to plastic for everyday use, and expanded availability to our consumers for dining out in a variety of high-end restaurants we are now found in."
"We have created a great tasting sparkling water of the highest-quality," commented Reza Mirza, Chief Executive Officer of Icelandic Glacial. "We are honored to win the Superior Taste Award from the International Taste and Quality Institute."
The sparkling water, along with the original, pristine still water, will be available this summer in newly designed 330ml and 750ml glass bottles.
