Icelandic Glacial continues to receive design awards for its innovative package as it captured the silver medal in the People’s Choice Award for Best Packaging Design at the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting competition held in Berkeley Springs, W.V. where more than 100 sparkling, bottled and municipal waters competed in the largest and longest running water tasting in the world.

“We are very proud to receive yet another strong distinction for our creative packaging,” said Patrick Racz, CEO of Icelandic Water Holdings. “We’ve worked hard to develop eye-catching packaging that closely reflects the unique source of our super-pure spring water. The fact that this was a People’s Choice award also says a lot about what consumers are looking for in bottled water – an exceptional product with smart, original bottle design to give off the message that they are also seeking the exceptional, smart things in life.”
Since the product’s introduction in September 2005, Icelandic Glacial has received numerous accolades for its bottle design, also winning the coveted “Best Overall Concept” award – among other top honors — as a first year entrant at the 2005 Bottled Water World Design Awards in Dubai. Icelandic Glacial was the only brand to be a finalist in two or more categories, winning two and receiving honors in the third.
