Oxford has some of America’s best-tasting water

Next time you find yourself in Oxford, make sure to ask for a big glass of cold water … straight from the tap.

At the annual Berkley Springs International Water Tasting competition, judges surveyed tap water refreshments from all over the world. And all five of their most-loved entries were from the United States — including Oxford, which placed fourth out of hundreds of applicants from the U.S. and Canada in the municipal water category.


The dozen media judges selected by Klein Rone from print, radio and the
Web were instructed by Cervin to look, sniff and taste each water under
guidelines like those in a wine tasting. The waters were rated for each
attribute including appearance (it should be clear – or slightly opaque
for glacial waters), aroma (there should be none), taste (it should
taste clean), mouth feel (it should feel light), aftertaste (it should
leave you thirsty for more). Waters were tasted in four separate flights
over two days.
