Tanduay, the world’s no.1 dark rum, recently launched an all-new premium drink that embodies the success and achievement of today’s young and success-oriented Filipinos. With a smoother distinct flavor and aroma, Tanduay's Master blender created the new, Tanduay SELECT, a new-age rum that will surely satisfy the discerning taste of today's young drinkers.

And now, the brand is giving today’s upwardly mobile individuals a taste of the finest rum with a flavor suited to their unique preference – the drink that every passionate individual truly deserves,” says Tanduay President and Chief Executive Officer Bong Tan.

Each bottle of Tanduay SELECT is a blend of ages of rum matured in oak barrels, a Tanduay tradition that gives its well-rounded and smooth distinct taste.

World-class heritage

Heritage is the foundation on which Tanduay was built and its story is a triumph that deeply inspired a nation. Tracing its humble beginnings from a small distillery in Hagonoy, Bulacan, the company is now among the leading liquor producers in the world. Buoyed by more than a century and a half of creative innovation and foresight, Tanduay takes pride in being one of the most awarded companies in the spirits industry with over a hundred international quality awards that include 88 golds, 7 International High Quality awards. This 2015, the company was awarded the Crystal Prestige trophy by the Monde Selection International Quality Institute, one of the world's most prestigious and highly esteemed body that recognized wines and liquor products with the highest standards of taste and quality.

Apart from heritage, the success of every Filipino and the entire nation has been the sole inspiration of Tanduay – making the brand a national icon as well. And as the Spirits Drink of Filipinos, it represents the nation’s true characteristics as a people.

These include the spirit of honor and tradition; the spirit of bravery, resiliency, and dedication; and the core trait of respect for elders and family values. Such characteristics have made Tanduay what it stands for today.

“Tanduay has been with the Filipinos in witnessing several historic moments and recognizing different heroes across all generations. In this modern age, our heroes are the young professionals who are not afraid to step up and achieve their goals, not just for their own fulfilment, but for their family and the society as well,” added Tan.

Believing that all stories of triumph deserve a celebration – such as the impeccable achievements of today’s young generations – Tanduay once again raises a toast to the success of today’s young Filipinos with the all-new Tanduay SELECT

JUSTINE JOY, Proves to be a Filipino Talent



One of the remarkable sign a Filipino performer has conceived and shows is his or her heart over what he displays as an individual , and the passion on what he or she believes that will took her to the success that he will have to the future. For Justine Joy, this would be the kind of a good start to choose in his right time of her life specially as a professional and an individual.


She in fact has declared that , her dreams has been slowly been granted to her this time on the launching of her 1st Album, entitled “Fly Away”. This album shows that she is a Muti-talented individual which can carry many kinds of genre that the industry have and  will be introducing.


During the group interview , she was asked if it enter her mind to be in one of the beauty pageants Internationally. and she hopes that one day it will happened to her but her parents does tell her just to focus more on her passion as a singer and or performer.

Justine Joy is Filipino - Australian-based independent artist.   Her independently produced debut album "Fly Away" is a testament of her fun and carefree spirit that soars high with her intense passion for music.  She spent her childhood years honing her talent in singing by taking a vocal coach, joining singing talent competition, and performing in numerous school plays.  In 2006, she was spotted by a dance talent scout  and persuaded her to be part of the newly formed hip hop dance crew “Gigabeatz” and went on to dance and sing with them until 2008. Gigabeatz won and placed in the top spots in several local hip hop dance competitions such as “Looze Control” and “Groove Hills”, as well as performed at many local charity and nightclub events. In 2007, Justine was fortunate enough to dance with Gigabeatz as the front act to the acclaimed group “The Outlawz” created by the late legendary rapper Tupac Shakur on his 10th Anniversary Legacy Tour, at their Sydney show with local artists Lia Maja and Abel. Also in 2007, Justine and Gigabeatz placed 1st in the local song and dance competition “Boogie Tunez” (Justine & Gigabeatz - Boogie Tunez 2007), the first of its kind in the area. There she was approached by Australian artist Neska after winning and was congratulated and encouraged that she has so much potential in her performance skills and to keep working at it to make her performance art the best it could be. This led to a number of live shows for Justine in some of Sydney’s acclaimed nightclubs during that year and in early 2008. Furthermore in 2007, during the “19th Philippine Fiesta Kultura” Justine and Gigabeatz were the backup dancers for Toni Gonzaga and Sam Milby’s live performances.

In March of 2008, however, Justine Joy took on a new career as a flight attendant in a prestigious international airline company. During this time she had to go on a hiatus from Gigabeatz and her performing as she was travelling the globe and her unpredictable schedule would not allow her to make it to regular rehearsals. Around 2010, after a 2 year break, Justine felt it was time to start performing again, even if just for private family functions, as she missed performing and the stage so much. Her wish came true starting again in 2010, when she was asked to dance as an extra in local Australian-Spanglish rapper “D-Minus’” music Video “Set it Off” (D-MINUS - SET IT OFF OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO), and then again in 2012 for D-Minus’ clip “La Rumba”. When 2013 came around, her passion grew ever larger when she performed on stage again in the “25th Philippine Fiesta Kultura.”

Justine Joy is now setting sights on fulfilling her dream of conquering the global stage with her true passion: music.  In between her 'day job' and travels, she hits the studio to write and record tracks for her album. And finally, the moment has come to pass...With her formidable spirit, boundless energy, and impassioned showmanship, Justine Joy is raring and ready to fly away....

Here’s the Youtube link for  the mtv beelow,

She is now in the Philippines to promote her carrier single “Tonight” which she also wrote included in her debut album entitled “Fly Away.” Now available in all Odyssey Music Stores.
