After developing Paradise Mango Rum Liqueur in 2002, Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc. has been at the forefront of championing Philippine raw materials in the development of value added alcoholic beverages that every Pinoy can be proud to call a 100% Filipino product.
In 2014, the company developed Manille Liqueur de Calamansi, an innovative product that sought to capture the unique zest of calamansi in a bottle. They would later develop a dalandan variant of the product. The story behind each bottle makes it more special, considering the corporate passion for local produce and farming communities. The company supports local farmers by paying them the market price of Calamansi and Dalandan. By cutting out the traders, the farmers get 100% of the profits from dealing with the company. “It’s sort of a CSR effort for our company. This increases every farmer’s margin a great deal,” says Olivia Limpe-Aw, CEO of DestileriaLimtuaco& Co., Inc.
With the brand’s success, the company has been busy with improving its production process, especially in the field of waste management. Since Manille Liqueurs only utilize the oils from the calamansi and dalandan skin, the production of this liqueur ends with a lot of underutilized citrus pulp, seeds, and even rinds. The calamansi and dalandan by-products from the production of Manille Liqueur de Calamansi and Dalandan are then ground into a natural citrus mud. This very ground citrus blend is the active ingredient in SI ANTI-BACTERIAL LIQUID HAND SOAP by Destileria Limtuaco.
This product has whitening and antiseptic properties while the fruit pulp exfoliates dead skin, removes dirt and lightens dark spots. This is all thanks to the natural citrus by product from the production of Manille Liqueurs.
The aim to efficiently manage waste products is not lost on the company. In fact, even with its other products, DestileriaLimtuaco continues to research different waste management processes in order to develop goods that may benefit the Filipino, like SI ANTI-BACTERIAL LIQUID HAND SOAP.
