Seawright Holdings Enters Its Bottled Water in World's Most Prestigious Water
ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Seawright Holdings, Inc.
(BULLETIN BOARD: SWRI) , owner of Seawright Springs, one of the oldest and
largest natural water springs on the Eastern Seaboard, today announced that its
bottled water will be a participant in the largest, longest running and most
famous International Water Tasting Festival in the world, to be held at Berkeley
Springs, West Virginia, Feb. 19-22, 2004.
Seawright Springs, in the historic Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, is one of the
largest sources of natural spring water anywhere, with the water coming from
high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The uniformly delicious taste of the water,
which maintains a constant 59 degree temperature all year, has made it a
favorite since the 1890s, when it was first bottled and sold.
Held in the historic spa town of Berkeley Springs, the 14th annual water tasting
festival ( http://www.berkeleysprings.com/water ) is a search for the best water
in the world. Prizes are given for bottled water, with Seawright Springs among
34 entries, and municipal water, packaging design plus other categories.
Seawright Springs will be competing against bottled waters from New Zealand,
Canada, Bosnia and throughout the U.S.
More than 100 companies and municipalities will be represented at the festival.
Last year, 27 states and the District of Columbia, plus eight countries,
including England, Sweden, Israel, Italy and Bosnia, competed. Previous judges
have included representatives from National Public Radio, the United Nations
Correspondents Association, the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun and other major
magazines and newspapers.
Bottled water is judged by its appearance, which must be clear, a lack of aroma,
its clean, light taste, and it should not have an aftertaste. "This is an
excellent opportunity for us to reintroduce the water from Seawright Springs to
the key experts in the bottled water industry," said Joel P. Sens, President and
CEO of Seawright Holdings. Mr. Sens' Company recently purchased the 145 acre
facility north of Staunton, Virginia, and is currently negotiating opportunities
for the property.
