Tapuey Mountain Rice Wine
Tapuey is a popular local drink served during rituals or traditions. The ancient art of making tapuey has been handed down from generation to generation and has evolved from its traditional use.
It is made from locally produced glutinous rice, cooked, fermented, and stored in earthen jars for two months. Shiny and clear in appearance, it leaves a sweet and tangy taste in every sip.
WHAT MAKES IT GOOD
Proudly Promdi features and sells products made from the provinces of Ilocos Norte and Cagayan. Promdi, which is short for "from the" originally has a negative connotation, referring to someone who grew up or came from the province.
Proudly Promdi aims to change the way people think about products that are promdi through accessibility, removing the stigma in Filipino consumers—and manufacturers— that promdi products aren’t good enough.
In doing so, they help households of the winemaking community in Adams, Ilocos Norte with a source of alternative livelihood and help preserve a part of their culture.
