Eldorado Artesian Springs Wins Silver Medal at Leading International Water Tasting Competition

LOUISVILLE, CO--(Marketwire - February 27, 2008) - Eldorado Artesian Springs, Inc. (OTCBB: ELDO) today announced that its artesian spring water won the Silver Medal at the 18th Annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting competition. The competition, which included more than 120 waters from 19 American states and nine foreign countries, is the largest and longest-running water tasting event in the world.

Eldorado Artesian Springs won the silver medal in the bottled water category after winning the third place bronze medal in the same competition in 1996 and consistently making it to the finals over the years. The two-day "blind" tasting competition is conducted under guidelines similar to those used in wine tasting competitions. Ten impartial judges consider clarity, taste, mouth feel, and lack of aroma and aftertaste. The competition attracted water companies from as far away as New Zealand and the Philippines to Romania and Macedonia.

"Eldorado Artesian Springs, Inc. has been packaging superior quality bottled spring water for nearly 25 years and we are pleased to be recognized in this competition that attracts the leading water producers from around the world," said Doug Larson, chief executive officer. "Bottled natural spring water has been the cornerstone of our business since inception, and the key to our success is the purity and excellent taste of the water we draw from our own artesian spring in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains."
