Tanduay is grateful to the farmers and distillers behind its products, as it won five med-als from the Beverage Testing Institute.

“This is good news not just for us but for the entire country as well, as our products are all proudly Philippine-made. During these challenging times, let us not forget what makes this country great and it’s our people. We raise a glass to our sugarcane farm-ers and distillers. Without them, Tanduay would not have perfected its process of creat-ing the world’s number one rum and continued its success for more than 100 years,” said Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing Paul Lim.

Tanduay Asian Rum Gold topped the list with a gold medal. One of Tanduay’s most awarded products, it is known for its smooth flavor with the richness of vanilla and notes of oak on its finish. It is aged in used bourbon barrels for seven years.

Silver medals, meanwhile, were awarded to Tanduay Asian Rum Silver and Boracay Cappuccino Flavored Rum.

Tanduay Double Rum and Boracay Coconut Flavored Rum both received bronze med-als.

Founded in 1981, Beverage Testing Institute provides reviews for wines, spirits, and beers. It uses “industry-leading methodology co-developed with Cornell University” in its evaluations.

“We are thankful for the recognitions that we receive as they are testament to our peo-ple’s hard work and innovation. We are proud to produce a world-class product from the Philippines,” Lim said.
