Basi(Philippine Sugarcane Wine) had been enjoyed in the country even before the Spanish regime. This drink was so well loved that the Basi Revolt resulted as the Spanish banned the private manufacture of this drink. We commemorate the Ilokano's love for basi with Vigan Basi, a premium cane wine made with sugarcane juice pressed from the best of Philippine Cane.
Destileria Limtuaco adopted internationally accepted wine making and processing standards and methods while maintaining the unique quality of traditional basi. Limpe-Aw also added local Ilocano herbs into the formulation, and the result is the Vigan Philippine Sugarcane Wine (Basi) that was recently launched.
