  • New and Old: Destileria Limtuaco opens museum in Intramuros
  • Wine and spirit aficionados will soon add to the regular visiting crowd of Intramuros, which used to be mainly composed of history buffs and students on tour buses.

    Destileria Limtuaco is a new old museum along San Juan de Letran Street in Intramuros.

    The oldest distillery in the Philippines, Destileria Limtuaco opened on February 6 its museum, a stone structure in Intramuros that houses various memorabilia of the brand that goes decades to more than a century back.

    The stone structure was built in 1982.

    The museum is, in fact, not new as it has been standing there since 1982. It was initially built as a private family museum “with the intention of preserving the company’s history,” according to Aaron Aw, a member of the family, in a Facebook post. It was only now, decades later, that the family decided to open it to the public.

    On the first floor of the Destileria Limtuaco museum, guests can learn the process of making a bottle of alcohol and travel through time with shelves of bottles that the historic distillery has ever produced.

    Siok Hoc Tong, a Chinese herbal tonic, was the first product of Destileria Limtuaco released in 1852.

    There is also an interactive section that features old commercials and calendars showing models in red bikinis riding a white horse, an iconic image associated with Destileria Limtuaco’s White Castle Whisky.

    The second floor meanwhile holds various items with great value to the Limtuaco family.

    Adults who avail of an upgraded tour at Php 200 will also surely enjoy the museum’s unlimited alcohol tasting at the bar area.
