2. Toast the sucess of a Filipino brand as the world’s best-selling rum.

Tanduay just surpassed Bacardi as the world's most popular rum. The Lucio Tan-owned liquor brand sold 19.5 million cases in 2017, while its Puerto Rican rival lagged with only 16.8 million cases sold.

Bacardi has consistently held the top spot for years, only briefly losing to Indian-made McDowell in 2014. The Lucio Tan group acquired the Tanduay brand 30 years ago and has since carried out modernization and expansion projects that have aided the distillery’s increased production.
