[Press Release] Solaire Resort & Casino celebrates the autumn equinox and the fullness of the moon with an assortment of Homemade Mooncake offerings to please every palate. The traditional Baked Mooncakes come in a box of 2 and 4. Each set of four Baked Mooncakes will feature a unique music box packaging and has two variants: the regular box of 4, and a premium box of 4 which includes three special sauces. A little quirkier, Snow Skin Mooncakes come in a set of 5 placed in a miniature fridge.
The Baked Mooncakes come in 4 varieties to choose from. All feature double egg yolk centers complemented by an assortment of rich and flavorful pastes. The red bean paste mooncake is given a twist with dried orange skin, giving the classic a pop of citrus. On the other hand, the white lotus paste mooncake remains to be a luxury for its silky, and rich qualities. Another is the black sesame lotus paste kind which parades a nuttier and more earthy taste, while the ube paste version gives the classic a local touch that is both a familiar and an unexpected treat.
Snow Skin Mooncakes are a popular choice for those in search of unique and creative pairings. Ingredients from fruits, nuts, down to spirits were thoughtfully selected to create a collection of 5 uniquely complex tastes. The mango paste and dried mango snow skin mooncake exhibits the versatility of the popular Philippine fruit, while the raisin and Ang Pili nut lotus paste version exudes a balance between a buttery almond fullness and plummy notes. The custard paste and Palet Noir chocolate snow skin mooncake gives an appealing bittersweet bite, and the strawberry snow skin mooncake with lotus paste and rum hazelnut chocolate is a combination of flavors that render varying degrees of sweet, and a nutty effect. For a bit more zest, the champagne paste and dried apricot snow skin mooncake lends the senses a nectarine and tart excitement.

It was known for years as a red-light district, Poblacion is trading its spunky reputation for seediness and skewing itself to be a place where cool is redefined. Heavily wheeled by white-collar Filipinos and expats, they infiltrate the mushrooming dining and drinking scene. Burgos is humid, has sketchy roads, one to none parking space yet its community kept on growing progressively. The Poblacion dining scene is its backdoor hipster counterpart offering an unparalleled haven for those seeking to peek into another world. We are teaming up with Auro Chocolate, an international award-winning, proudly Filipino bean-to-bar chocolate company that sustainably sources cacao beans from local farmers- to reintroduce the best of local chocolate not as a dessert, but as an innovative focal ingredient infused in savory dishes and craft drinks!
Experience chocolate like never before! Find out WHY you need to experience the Auro Chocolate Bar Crawl (Poblacion series)

This experience crawl is a mixture of old and new. Come with us! as we re-introduce Manila to you from a different angle.
On a random Wednesday afternoon we visited Destileria Limtauco, Located in Intramuros, the museum is housed in a Bahay na Bato that then-CEO Julius Limpe acquired back in 1979. We initially had the impression that it was one of the original official sites where they actually conduct their business, but not to that extent. Former CEO envisioned building a company museum 40 years ago.
Over 166 years company, a good backstory, and having the Bahay the Bato as its showroom. Why not. We absolutely love the Manille Liqueur de Calamansi—a local take on Italian limoncello. Years back you’d see a woman riding gallantly a white horse on her red bikini on primetime local TV commercials and your friendly neighborhood sari-sari store’s calendars. White Castle Whisky stroke every man’s ego desires.
The Bahay the Bato exudes charm and is already inviting. There you will find young Gen Z’s explaining each part of the tour. The museum’s first floor exhibits show the actual process of making rum and whiskey, from fermentation and aging to bottling.
The guide will show you the process of making rum their mini tank of fermenting molasses and a distillation. You will be asked to open a jar and sniff to found out what fermented molasses smells like.
The family has been experimenting with blending their whisky from local natual materials from scratch. This is the first locally, wholly domestically produced whisky in The Philippines. As practice most makers just opt to source flavours from abroad, burt with the Limtuaco’s they’re really making it from scratch– they use local Zambales mangoes, local cacao beans, yellow corn from Isabela, and the rest of the liquor line up tells the same story.
50% of the tour would focus on the Limtuaco family legacy. Wall displays big portraits of the company’s master blenders and presidents.
To culminate the tour, a fitting liquor tasting flight experience is a must! We personally would recommend sampling The Philippine Craft Spirit Collection- fine local fruit extracts that are infused with their blended liquors.
