Main Sponsor and Official Water Partner
S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna will take a central role at Middle East & North Africa's 50 Best Restaurants awards, an event that will provide another opportunity to confirm how well they complement each other on the tables of the most renowned restaurants.
The two brands of water are widely appreciated for their ability to combine perfectly in enhancing foods, wines and refined tastes through their properties: Acqua Panna is smooth, light and velvety, while S.Pellegrino is bright, fizzy and refined. What makes S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna the Fine Dining brands of water is their undisputed elective affinity with the world of wines and, more in general, high-quality catering.
Water and wine are a team that cannot be split up and that is even more closely bound at the table: Acqua Panna, for example, blends perfectly with a light wine having a moderate alcohol content. On the contrary, S.Pellegrino goes perfectly with full-bodied and vintage wines. These considerations emerge from a meticulous study conducted in collaboration with the authoritative organization Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (ASI).
The results of this original and innovative work have given rise to the Water Codex, a work that establishes a new approach to mineral water tasting in high-quality catering and now represents a point of reference for caterers all over the world.
The two brands also share strong, enchanting values such as their Italian origin, the history that led to their success, the elegance and balance of their taste. Values that are clearly expressed through their two logos, the unmistakable star of S.Pellegrino and the Florentine fleur-de-lis of Acqua Panna.
The complementary nature of the two products has led to the design of a single logo combining both logos and is underlined by a wave-shaped curve in which the continuous line represents the still water and the dotted line represents the fizzy water.
