The New PAL Mabuhay Lounge Bar Offers a Taste of Tanduay’s Premium Rums

“The Tanduay Bar offers a selection of drinks that include some of the brand’s premium rums. Tanduay's products are well-known among our guests, including our foreign passengers. So, having the Tanduay Bar helps further elevate the dining experience at the Mabuhay Lounge. We believe in providing an oasis for travelers, and the Tanduay Bar perfectly aligns with our vision. We offer them moments of relaxation amid the hustle and bustle of travel. Many passengers want to try the Double Rum because it is uncommon for them. They are amazed at its taste, and some of them would even ask us where they could buy a bottle of the Double Rum.” ~Emalyn Lira, Manager for Lounge Services at PAL
