Now, ‘Imeldifique’ is a cooking wine

Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc. (DLCI) is launching Imeldifique Cooking wine that was produced in collaboration with the government of Ilocos Norte. Gov. Imee Marcos approached DLCI’s Olivia Limpe-Aw during International Food Exhibition (IFEX) 2015 after spotting the company’s product, Vigan Basi, and asked if Olivia could also come up with a product for Ilocos Norte.

Olivia considered it and formulated a cooking wine idea using sorghum spirit as a base. Sorghum is endemic to the region and is also distilled into what is known in China as Baijiu (Kaolian Jiu in Taiwan). She then infused the spirit with native garlic, onions, and salt to get our Philippine ginisa or saute flavor that we love. All ingredients used to make the cooking wine are from Ilocos Norte.

With Imeldifique Cooking Wine, you can simply marinate meats and saute in oil, bake, or fry. You can also add it to stews for an instant natural ginisa flavor and aroma. It can also be used to marinate seafood to remove any trace of fishiness.

It will be available in leading supermarkets and specialty stores like SM Kultura. DLCI is a leader in the Philippine liquor industry with 163 years of blending and distilling expertise. Visit
