From among thousands of spirits across the globe, Tanduay Double Rum was adjudged as one of the best by the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America and the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC).
Tanduay Double Rum received the gold medal from the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America and the silver medal in the SFWSC. Almost 3,000 spirits joined the competition this year, the largest in its 19-year history.
“We are honored to receive these awards. They are testaments to our commitment to making world-class products and highlighting the craftsmanship of the Filipino,” said Lucio Tan, president and chief operating officer of Tanduay Distillers Inc.
Tanduay has a full range of rums that are categorized according to their type (dark, gold, white), proof (alcohol strength), age and character.
Tanduay Double Rum is a blend of two aged reserves—16-year-old rum and 5-year-old rum that are aged in the barrel for another two years. It is produced in small batches with a minimum run of only 5,000 bottles per production. It is a “sipping rum” that belongs to the cognac level of spirits.
