Va., it is the largest water tasting competition in the world. This year, six of the entries will be bottled rainwater sponsored by the 501(c)(3) nonprofit American Rainwater Catchment Systems Assn.

Richard's Rainwater, Oregon Rain, Texas Rain and Tasmanian Rain all are entered in the bottled water category, while SparkleTap and Rainwater Management Solutions are entering in the new purified water category.
