The brands at the top of the list of the best selling spirits in the world are a lot different than you’d probably expect. Brands like Jinro, the South Korean soju brand which sold 68 million cases in 2012 (source: IWSR), Thailand’s Ruang Khao, and Philippines’ Emperador brandy eclipse more familiar brands like Jack Daniel’s, Jameson, and Smirnoff. In the rum space, you might expect global titan Bacardi to hold the top spot, but that distinction actually belongs to Filipino brand Tanduay Rum. Traditionally, much of Tanduay’s massive volume has been consumed in the Philippines, but the brand is hoping to woo US consumers and has released a special export version of their rum to the US. Tanduay Silver Rum is a blend of rums aged 0-5 years, and unlike many of the other silver rums on the market, Tanduay does not filter their rum so it has a faint color.
