beti apa din robinet? - UK's 'best' tap waters revealed
  • Water supplied by Severn Trent has been named Britain's best tasting tap water by a panel of food and drink experts.

    The panel, including Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens, gave each sample a mark out of five for clarity, smell and most importantly taste.

    One expert described Severn Trent's water as "beautifully pure, a mountain stream of freshness".

    Anglian Water was second, Thames Water was third but Wessex Water came last out of 10 regions tested.

    Judges gave marks in a blind taste test at the Chelsea-based restaurant Tom's Kitchen in London.

    Mr Aikens described Severn Trent Water as having a "clean taste" and being "very fresh".

    Richard Rotti, head of wines at Annabel's and a panellist, said the water was "beautifully pure, a mountain stream of freshness".

    Severn Trent said it took the production of high quality drinking water seriously.

    The company covers Birmingham, Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Nottingham, Leicester and parts of mid-Wales.

    Anglian Water, which covers East Anglia and parts of the East Midlands, was placed second.

    In third place was Thames Water, which covers Oxfordshire, London, Wiltshire, north Kent, Thames Valley and Surrey.

    The tasting competition was set up to celebrate the launch of a new initiative from the environmental group Green Thing.

    The Drink Tap campaign will encourage people to stop drinking bottled water and switch to tap water during August.

    Green Thing aims to highlight the beneficial impact that this change will have on the environment - with tap water there is no plastic to recycle and no carbon emissions from transportation of the product.

    Naresh Ramchandani, co-founder of Green Thing, said: "Switching to tap for the month of August will make a huge contribution to helping the environment and it will probably save you a few pennies as well."
