Drinking liquors is one way to distress ourselves despite of the heavy feeling it gives to us every morning. Many people like to drink because it can help us to forget the reality even just for a night. If you love drinking liquors you may want to visit Destileria Limtuaco Museum which is located at 481 San Juan de Letran, Intramuros, Manila, 1002 Metro Manila. This place is known as the longest-running distillery or the Oldest Distillery in the Philippines since 1979 and they only started to welcome guests last February 2018. They are open every Tuesday to Sunday at 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The museum has an entrance fee of 100.00 pesos for adult and 50.00 pesos for students. They have lockers outside where you can put your things for free. And they also have a tour guide that will explain the things that can be found inside the museum. 
Outside of the museum, first thing that you will see is the Dapilan Machine that is used way back before to make sugarcane when the technology is not rampant yet. The carabao is the one who is responsible to operate the machine in order to crush the stalks in a manual way. 
This is a two-story museum and upon entering inside of the first floor you will see large barrels and machines that they used for the production of their liquors before, authentic and processed liquors that they did from the past decade, and different types of bottles that holds a symbolism from the past. You will also learn how whiskies and rums were made starting from grains to its production.

Destileria Limtuaco is the one who made the famous calendar with a model wearing a red bikini with a horse and white castle at the back of it. They came upon this kind of advertisement because one of their founders dreamed about this and he decided to make it into a reality.
