Due to pandemic and government lockdowns, our F&B and hospitality industries have been some of the hardest hit by the quarantines. Bars have the extra impact of a curfew and liquor bans that have covered much of the city. Now, more than ever, supporting Philippine made goods and independent small enterprises like Run Rabbit Run (RRR) becomes incredibly important. So if you are going to enjoy a few drinks at home, it’s a good idea to support local businesses, especially when their products are — without a doubt — world class.
In this video, Editor in Chief Kayo Cosio unboxes the package and gets on the line with some of the people involved in bringing us this special box set. We Zoom video call with Aaron Goodall from Don Papa, Enzo, and Christina of RRR. They graciously took time to show us how each drink is made.
Available at https://www.runrabbit.run/cocktails-to-go, this package is called “A Rabbit in Sugarlandia” and costs Php1600. It serves about 6-8 drinks, which averages out to about Php200-Php260 per drink. That’s a pretty awesome deal if you are used to paying Php450 for beverages of this quality.
