“All it takes is one look, one sip to fully appreciate Emperador Brandy as a world-class product – that just happens to be conveniently affordable,” stated Glenn Manlapaz of EDI. Both Emperador Light and Emperador Brandy display a distinct amber color. In the nose, a pleasant bouquet of a fruity aroma of grapes is noted, easy and balanced in the mouth, its body hints of refreshing peach, with a subtle finish of wood and almond. Emperador Brandy owes its success to an intricate blending and aging process.
In 2010, Emperador Light was introduced in the Philippines market, becoming the country’s first light full-flavored brandy. Factoring in the brand’s monumental success are its exceptional quality, widespread market availability, and charming campaign focused on “Keeping Things Light”. This was followed by the “Gawin Mong Light” campaign, which encouraged drinkers to look at the lighter side of life’s daily challenges. This philosophy resonated well with their target consumers, who constantly work hard to achieve their personal goals, but prefer to keep things light when it comes to their social life.
