To help address the alcohol shortage in medical facilities, the Lucio Tan Group’s Tanduay Distillers, Inc. and Absolut Distillers Inc. (ADI) have started the production of ethyl alcohol, which are being distributed to the Department of Health (DOH) and other hospitals.

“The health of our front liners is essential in our fight against the spread of COVID-19,” ADI chief operating officer and over-all general manager for distillery operation of the LT Group Gerry Tee explains. “Tanduay has some of the most modern and the best distilleries in the country. Producing alcohol for disinfection is one way we are doing our part in helping keep our
communities safe.

Tanduay donated the first batch of 5,000 4-liter bottles to the DOH, and gave another 5,000 bottles to other non-government organizations for distribution in medical facilities.

“During these challenging times, it’s important that we step up and help each other. We have transformed our distilleries to produce ethyl alcohol to supply the need of our kababayans. From Luzon, we aim to deliver next to Visayas and Mindanao,” Tee says.

The LT Group has several distilleries in the country, such as Absolut Distillers, Inc. in Lian, Batangas and Asian Alcohol in Pulupandan, Negros Occidental. These were established to support its main alcohol business, Tanduay Distillers Inc. The company also has 30% shares in Victorias Milling Company, which engages in integrated raw and refined sugar manufacturing, as well as ethanol and potable alcohol production.
