“Our distinctly Filipino rum is now the world’s number one...We have a great product to offer the world and the world recognized it. Only a visionary like my father, Dr. Lucio Tan, saw this when he acquired Tanduay from the Elizaldes in 1988. At a time considered very volatile for any business investment in the country, my father held on to the belief that someday the world will know Tanduay." ~Lucio “Bong" K. Tan, Jr., president and chief executive officer of Tanduay Distillers, Inc.
