Ube Cream Liqueur
Introducing the world’s first Ube Cream Liqueur. Once you open this bottle, all will enjoy it and want more. Multi-awarded in the USA for the flavor, not too sweet, just right.
An innovative blend of sugar cane vodka from Negros Philippines blended with full cream and the star of the show, Filipino Ube.
This deliciously creamy liqueur is a national icon. It’s best served chilled. It can easily be consumed as a shot or neat on the rocks, layered on shooters, or a boozy Halo Halo.
Ube Cream Liqueur brings the fiesta spirit of the Philippines to the world, one bottle at a time. Made with the precolonial root crop staple of the Filipino people, Ube Cream Liqueur is ritually crafted with local and indigenous botanicals, spices, and ingredients using a combination of distillation techniques in a zero-waste process. The ube used in every batch is sourced directly from farms to highlight the best produce of the Philippine islands.
BORN IN MYTHOLOGY. PERFECTED IN RITUAL.
On a humble piece of land lived a Filipina who tended a field of ube. She was a farmer by day and an alchemist by night.
Often, passersby would stop and scoff, “Why don’t you grow something more beautiful? Something that would sell for more money? Something imported?” And they sighed “Ah, women!” The farmer was no stranger to outsiders thinking her a simple laborer growing nothing but a lowly root, nor was she a stranger to attempts to steal her land and cultivation process.
But under the light of a full moon, she harvested her crops and laid them down on her hearth next to her tools – itak, palayok, gata, panutsa. She looked up at Dayang and whispered incantations to honor the deities. Weaving the magic of apoy, hangin, tubig, and lupa with the magic within her, she created the most delicious potion the world has ever known.
Destileria Barako was founded in 2016 and is fast becoming a household name as a major manufacturer of spirits in the Philippines. As the leading boutique distillery in the Philippines, Destileria Barako operates its main distillery in Boracay with a second larger automated bottling line now in Manila, Philippines.
Having been allured to the white sand beaches of Boracay, the founders of Destileria Barako immediately fell in love with the country’s unique culture and vibrant botanicals, and were inspired to create Destileria Barako. Guided by a deep appreciation for Philippine folklore and culture, they immersed themselves in the local community, forging relationships with farmers and foraging for botanicals that would infuse their products with exceptional quality and the spirit of the Philippines.
