It’s going to be real fun in Bacolod now that the ordinance pushed by Councilor Em Ang to hold an annual Rum Festival in Bacolod City was approved by the Bacolod Sanggunian Panlungsod on the first reading .
Councilor Ang shared the Brand Champions 2018 report, where it was shown that Tanduay – a Philippine brand wine has overtaken Bacardi for the first time as the world’s best-selling rum brand. He added that since Negros is known to be the Sugar Capital of the Philippines and Tanduay is the best-selling rum in Asia, it is suitable to establish a festival to celebrate the contribution of rum in the sugar industry. It is stated in the ordinance that the rum festival shall be held for two days every third weekend of August in Bacolod City.
