How much do you love chocolate? How about drinking booze? Let me share something to you about how those two were combined to give us an extraordinary chocolatey madness.
Cacao found a fertile land to grow in the Philippines since Spaniards brought it to our country in the 18th century. The plant flourished and cacao plantations can now be found in Philippines Islands.
Somwhere around Davao region local chocolatier Theo & Philo started sourcing its cacao ingredients for the production of its best-selling chocolates in Manila and just recently, they started a partnership deal with Tanduay and came up with the Theo, Philo & Tanduay—a chocolate bar made with 65% dark chocolate filled with house-made caramel and the much-lauded Tanduay Asian Rum Gold.
Tanduay Asian Rum Gold received the Gold award from the International Review of Spirits= the Silver award from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and another Silver Award from the WSWA Tasting Competition all in one year — 2018. Prior to that, it received the Gold Medal from the Monde Selection, the 3-Star Superior Taste Ward from the International Taste & Quality Institute, the Gold award from the International Review of Spirits, Beverage Testing Institute—all in 2017.
Chief marketing officer of Tanduay Distillers, Inc., Paul Lim said, “We continue to create innovative ways for people to enjoy rum. The collaboration between two award-winning brands — Tanduay and Theo & Philo – gives us a truly Filipino product we can be proud of.”
As the cacao used in making Theo, Philo & Tanduay is solely sourced in Davao, the sugarcane used for Tanduay Asian Rum Gold is sourced and harvested from Bacolod. All Tanduay products are also proudly Philippine-made.
Theo, Philo & Tanduay is exclusively available at the Tanduay Store at Century Park Hotel in Malate, Manila. I know you’re curious about the taste of this flavorful dessert. What are you waiting for? Buy now!
