by Jim Bea Sampaga

In celebration of Women’s Month, the Philippine Consulate in Honolulu is partnering with Filipina-founded Kasama Rum for a virtual Kasama Rum Tasting while tackling the conversation how women entrepreneurs can shape the food and retail industry. The Virtual Kasama Rum Tasting will be held on March 27, from 6pm-7pm.

Kasama Rum is a small-batch rum crafted in the Philippines. In Filipino, kasama means together or companion and the company wants to celebrate the importance of having a good company.

“The whole brand is really rooted in celebration, and it’s about having a good time with good company,” Kasama Rum founder Alexandra Dorda said.

“I wanted to bring that attitude of optimism and carefree island lifestyle straight to your glass.”Recently, Kasama Rum started distributing their spirits at Tamura’s Fine Wine & Liquors in February this year.

Dorda will be joining the Philippine Consulate for the virtual rum tasting event. She will be sharing her inspiration behind the brand and her favorite cocktail recipes using Kasama Rum.

The virtual event will also feature the Kasama Rum Tasting Box which contains a bottle of Kasama Rum, cocktail ingredients to be used for tasting, and a special gift from the Philippine Department of Tourism.

In addition, guests have an option to add hand-painted CBD-infused gourmet chocolates from Lacosta Chocolates. The gourmet chocolate brand is also founded by Filipina entrepreneur in Hawai’i Leni Acosta Knight.

Guests can purchase their Kasama Rum Tasting Box via Eventbrite: bit.ly/3bbnyhf.
