Tanduay Rum, made in the heart of the Philippines, is a multiple award-winning spirit that carries with it the true heritage and culture of East Asia. Tanduay is the best-selling rum brand for 4 consecutive year and now Emporia Brands are bringing its 160+ years of experience in rum making, distilling and aging direct to all major wholesalers within the UK as of April 2022.
“The U.K. is one of the most exciting markets that Tanduay will be starting this year. We are fortunate to have found in Emporia Brands a like-minded company to help us in furthering our international business,” said Tanduay Executive Vice President Kyle Tan, who leads the company’s international expansion.
Emporia Brands is an award-winning premium spirits importer, distributor and innovator. The family-owned business has won the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) Spirits Importer of the Year three times.
“We’re very excited to welcome Tanduay into our portfolio of premium spirits and to share with our customers, for the first time, the liquids coming from the number one rum producer globally,” said Jack Rackham, Managing Director of Emporia Brands. He continues, “the quality of Tanduay rums at such a competitive price point, will provide a solid foundation to build long-lasting rum relationships with key retailers and rum advocates throughout the market.”
In celebration of Tanduay’s official UK launch there will be Regional Trade Events across different cities (Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and London) with a focus on Filipino culture and community. The events will be in collaboration with Filipino DJs, restaurants and local communities from the surrounding areas.
