: The sensory evaluation of alkali-ion water and bottled mineral water was performed by panelists and their preferences for the taste of alkali-ion water was surveyed. Consequently, alkali-ion water made from tap water was found to taste better than any bottled mineral water; however, the activated carbon filtration water, which was also made from tap water, was found to taste better than alkali-ion water. Furthermore, smell, taste, feeling in the throat, aftertaste, and general impression of the mineral water, alkali-ion waters, and activated carbon filtration water were evaluated using the 1-pair comparison method. Consequently, alkali-ion water and activated carbon filtration water were more highly rated than commercial bottled mineral water.
