Berkeley Springs, W.Va. (AP) -- For the 20th year, water suppliers around the world will compete for the title of best-tasting tap.

The Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting is set for Feb. 27 at the Country Inn.

It's the world's largest and longest-running water tasting competition.

Categories include municipal waters and purified drinking water, plus still and sparkling bottled waters.

Entries come from across the United States and as far as New Zealand, Iceland and Romania.

Arthur Von Wiesenberger, a water-tasting expert and author from Santa Barbara, Calif., trains the judges.

And winners can reap more than bragging rights: Within two months of being dubbed best bottled still water, Martinsburg-based Tumai Water saw its sales jump from 54 cases to 2,500 cases a month.
