CREATING cocktails quickly and efficiently while entertaining customers could be challenging. This is why when it came to Tanduay Bacolod Rum Festival’s mixology and flairtending competition, the contest organizers relied on Hanabishi Appliances, manufacturer of some of the best blenders in the country. Hanabishi provided its Super Blender HJB 326, which has a 1.5-liter glass jar, a two-speed control with pulse function, a stainless steel blade, an overheat protector on motor, a safety lock and a power motor. “We are thankful to be a part of the festival and showcase how one of our best-selling products can be useful not just for the home, but for businesses as well,” said Cherish Ong-Chua, vice president for finance and marketing of Hanabishi Appliances. “Blenders are used not just for cocktail processes, but for making syrups, extracting juices, crushing herbs and spices, and other tasks as well,” said Jake Alaon, resident bartender of Tanduay Distillers Inc. Gemoel Guanzon, this year’s grand champion, was a Hospitality Management graduate, bartender, freelance photographer and graphic designer. As a participant in numerous bartending contests, he understood the benefits of a good blender.
