Four Tanduay Rum brands won top awards at the SIP Awards in 2022, the only wine and spirits competition with a consumer-led judging panel.
“The customer is your most important judge,” the SIP Awards stated on its website, “which is why we remain committed to offering one of the most trustworthy measurements of beverage quality rating in the world” (www.sipawards.com).
Tanduay Distillers, Inc. is a company that produces distilled spirits. Executive Vice President Kyle Tan, who oversees the company’s export operations, expressed gratitude for the positive feedback from both consumers and critics.
“This goes to show how we pay much attention to the quality of our rums and we are proud to say that all its ingredients are sourced from the Philippines where the tropical weather contributes to its fine tastes,” he said.
Tanduay’s Winning Rums
Especia Spiced Rum and Tanduay Asian Rum Silver both received the competition’s Platinum Award. The award is given to spirits that “represent a distinguished class that earned exceptional marks from consumer judges.”
The former is the newest product from Tanduay. Introduced to select markets only last March, it also received a double gold in the San Diego Spirits Festival.
Tanduay Asian Rum Silver, meanwhile, is one of the rum brand’s most-awarded products. It has received honors from top international spirits competitions and has 12 Monde Selection medals to its name.
Another favorite in international contests, Tanduay Double Rum, received the Silver and Innovation Awards. SIP’s Innovation Award is given to spirits with an interesting and unique taste profile or design.
Tanduay Asian Rum Gold also received the Silver Award from the contest.
Further Boost to Growing Export Business
“We would like to thank the SIP Awards, especially the consumer judges, for recognizing the quality of our rums. This gives our international expansion a big boost,” said Tan.
As of this writing, Tanduay has entered the rum markets of 12 U.S. states and the territory of Guam, the United Arab Emirates, China, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg.
“Tanduay has been loved by Filipinos for decades. It’s time to let the world know about it as it is a product that showcases the country’s best local ingredients and its people’s craftsmanship and ingenuity,” Tan said.
Tanduay is a Southeast Asian heritage brand noted for its stunning beaches and welcoming people. It was founded in 1854 and is one of just a handful Filipino businesses to celebrate its centenary year. The rum brand has won awards from international spirits competitions since the 1800s.
