Bringing the Flavors of the Islands to Germany
Aged for seven years in bourbon barrels, Tanduay Asian Rum Gold is made from heritage sugarcane from the islands of the Philippine’s sugar region. Its taste is a good balance of alcohol leaves and sweetness, with expressive flavors of vanilla and woody notes and a body that is mellow, smooth, and dry.
Tanduay Asian Rum Gold is the recipient of awards from the International Review of Spirits, San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the Monde Selection, and the Madrid International Rum Conference, among others.
Tanduay Asian Rum Silver, meanwhile, is aged for five years in bourbon barrels. Its taste is a harmony of cream soda with flavors of citrus fruits, and has crisp, fruity and light body.

Gärtner shared that Kreyenhop & Kluge is “very proud to distribute Tanduay in Germany.”
“As the world’s number one selling rum, we see high potential to establish Tanduay in Germany. Kreyenhop & Kluge is always looking for authentic and big Asian brands to bring to Germany,” he said.
