Tanduay Distillers, Inc. is the oldest among the subsidiaries and carries with it the distinction of being one of the biggest brands in the distilled spirits category with a 99% share in the rum category.

The ageing facilities houses at least 200,000 oak barrels with a capacity of approximately 40 million gauge liters which is a key competitive advantage that will take 25 years to replicate.

Its commitment is anchored on the noble vision of the LT Group which is “to make quality accessible to many.” With a competent and highly dedicated Products Development team, Tanduay strives to be at the forefront of the distilled spirits market constantly innovating to adapt to the changing demands of the market.
