Backtracking your hotlinked image, I was able to get to their site. (http://www.pinoydelikasi.com) They are offering it online. The lambanog is produced by Mallari Distillery (http://www.citem.gov.ph/catalogonline/main/copages.php?ccode=12233) and is distributed to local supermarkets (FAQ)
You can always contact (http://www.pinoydelikasi.com/html/body_contact_us.php) pinoydelikasi.

My best bet will be on SM Department store. Dun sa mga pang foreigner. Together with the miniature jeepneys and Philippine mugs, malamang meron din dun. Baka lang :)

Have seen many lesser brands of lambanog (in re-used San Mig/whatever bottles)in sari-sari stores in Laguna.

Don't know if it's worth it to buy the appraently premium brand you showed. Hey, lambanog is CHEAP. My friends in Liliw, Laguna, where I have gone frequently, make it in huge clay vessels. By the time it gets put into bottles, and branded, and distributed to Makati supermarkets, mama mia it's ten times the price. If you just want to drink it for yourself, go to the source - those little stills among the coconut trees - and buy in gallons. Or bring your own bottles.

Lambanog does not age - although some people put langka or raisins or something into it , and then leave it alone for weeks, to absorb the fruitflavor.

The first stuff that condenses out of the still makes good lighter fluid too.

uy , that's my fave! basta class A
Quezon pero beware , daming fake and they can be dangerous
A friend has a source from liliw , sarap super smooth pero I dont know where dun
Kung pa isa isa lang, hanap ka nalang sa mga tourist traps ng bottled
Anyway, Americans and Europeans absolutely love Lambanog stainless

It has to be this specific brand or something very similar in presentation and quality. Actually it's a request from a relative in California. He is thinking of making it a business because he co-owns a Filipino store there. I am still trying to figure out how to ship it if I ever get one.

Bakit hindi pa ikaw ang nag bottle at package
Buy it by the gallon in Quezon , tapos pa bottle mo plus design a package

Allegra's right. You can get it much much cheaper in bulk. Bottle it, put on your own label , and sell it either as lambanog to drink, or lighter fluid, or acetone nailpolish remover, or briquette fire starter, or anything like that.

Incidentally, lambanog is known as "toddy" in Malaysia. Anywhere there are coconuts, there is lambanog.

Nilulubog pa namin sa balon yung bote.

I remember one time a few years ago umiinom kami ng lambanog, tagay tagay sa isang baso, then suddenly one of the guest we were drinking with coughed up blood. He has tuberculosis pala. ;g ;g . And we were drinking from the same glass. "Oh what the heck" somebody said. Alcohol naman iniinom namin. Matinding disinfectant yun lambanog;f ;f ;f ;f

If you are planning to export “Lambanog” in commercial quantities to the US, I won’t advice the above quoted post (sorry sirs Allegra and antediluvianist). But if it is for domestic or personal use, go for it!

The US has high standards when it comes to the importation of foodstuff, medicine, liquor, etc. As a matter of fact, they have it for anything they import (whew….talk about protectionism). So, unless, you have the adequate facilities to re-bottle and the capability to ensure that the “Lambanog” manufactured is within US standard, your shipment risk being rejected and sent back or confiscated and destroyed. Furthermore, you’re opening yourself for lawsuits. Not only civil lawsuit but also criminal charges if someone is injured or dies because of your product.

When I was still in cargo, we forwarded some commercial quantities of Philippine made liquor and beer (Tanduay rum and SMB). Aside from the usual export documents, we also needed the following documents:

1. Certificate from BFAD (that the above is fit for human consumption).
2. Certificate from the DTI or SEC that the exporter and manufacturer are registered companies.
3. Certificate from the Manufacturer as to the alcohol content of the product.

Therefore, I would suggest the following options:

1. Just act as a middleman and let the manufacturer export his product to your relative (less risk and documentation on your part); or
2. Buy the product locally and export it yourself; or
3. If you want to export it under your own label, let the manufacturer bottle it for you and have them change the label.

BTW, I’ve seen this Lambanog or similar ones featured in Living Asia (a cable channel) when they were presenting Quezon Province. You could probably watch out for it.

Ah, no, certainly you can't export that Liliw lambanog to a place like the US, or the EU or Australia . Like I said, the Liliw stuff can be used as lighter fluid/nail polish remover etc. Can't get something as "impure" as that into the US/EU/Australia. But locally, what's a little acetone among friends?

On a similar matter, a friend of mine in Spain just rejected a container-load of seafood from the Philippines. Ah, pollution is increasing. First time she had to reject a container from the RP.

One of the Irish scientists here from IRRI would bring back a gallon to Europe. Then they'd have lambanog parties
