Ginebra San Miguel Inc. (GSMI) announced that their new calendar girl is none other than Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach. The company saw their brand’s reflection in the beauty queen as both have prevailed against all odds to become the icons they are today. The big reveal is in preparation for GSMI’s upcoming 185th anniversary.
Pia was so proud to accept the job and considers it as good as embodying the Filipino people. “Masaya ako na napiling maging 2019 calendar girl. Tulad ng brand pinapahalagahan ko ang mga katangiang kilala at nagpapaangat sa mga Pilipino sa buong mundo. Matapang, matibay, ganado, never say die; hindi sumusuko sa anumang hamon ng buhay.” She added, “At the end of this journey, ginagawa naten ‘to para sa ating mga pangarap. Pilipino ako, matapang ako, Ginebra ako.”
Guests also enjoyed Pia’s favorite—the GSM Gin and Tonic. She shares, “I like to add juniper berries and peppercorn. My best friend actually makes it for me.” The cocktail combines Ginebra San Miguel Frasco, tonic water, a lemon wedge, and ice.
The calendar will be available soon in stores nationwide. Follow their Facebook page for more info.
