Company Profile

About the product…
* Vino Kulafu is the Philippines most popular Chinese wine. * Named after a legendary Filipino jungle hero Kulafu.
* The brand has become a byword in Visayas and Mindanao, especially for its health benefits. * Vino Kulafu is is appreciated from its 50 proof, 25% alcohol and 14 authentic traditional botanical herbs combined through a special distillation process to attain a well-blended herbal aroma. * Manufactured by Ginebra San Miguel, formerly La Tondeña Inc. * It is considered as the main elixir of peasants in the countrysides of Visayas and Mindano. The Company: Ginebra San Miguel, Inc.

Ginebra San Miguel, Inc. or commonly known as GSMI, grew out of a family-owned Spanish era distillery which, in 1834, introduced what was to become the company's flagship brand and the largest selling, first ever Philippine gin in the world – Ginebra San Miguel.

GSMI has since evolved from being a solely gin-driven business into a progressive and dynamic organization whose strength lies in the proud heritage of its flagship product, its extensive experience in alcohol production and distribution, and the never-say-die spirit of its workforce. The company continues to adopt to the ever-changing preferences of its markets, providing more value-for-money options through its growing line of world-class hard liquor and healthy beverages.

With the support of its parent company – San Miguel Corporation, Ginebra San Miguel, Inc. boldly looks to the future propelled by its vision of becoming a diversified beverage company in the Asian region.

Being a majority-owned subsidiary of San Miguel Corporation (the "SMC"), the Company has adopted a Manual on Corporate Governance (the "Manual") closely patterned after that of its parent company.

The Company continues to review and strengthen its policies and procedures, giving due consideration to areas which, in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders, need further improvement.
