The Philippines’ Tanduay Rhum was named the best-selling rum in the world, beating the popular Bacardi and other international brands.
According to Tanduay Rhum, its newfound global status was based on a ranking released by think tank Drinks International (http://drinksint.com/).
“We have a great product to offer the world and the world finally recognized it,” said Lucio Tan, Jr., president and CEO of Tanduay Distillers Inc.
For the first time, a Philippine liquor brand outranked Bacardi and McDowell’s No. 1 Celebration.
