The last couple of years have shown a significant increase in the interest and awareness among Filipino drinkers on whisky and single malt spirits. The popularity of whisky has skyrocketed with the aggressive marketing efforts of premium whisky brands. Whisky bars and cocktail bars became increasingly popular alongside the awareness of the liquor. Over the years, the steady rise of the liquor’s popularity in the Philippines remains strong and so is the projection for years to come.

This heightened whisky awareness and consumption in the Philippines have captured the attention of international distillers and whisky brands from around the world.
