Bubud refers to the traditional Filipino rice wine from Ilocos province.

It is known in other parts of the Philippines Agkud

Bubud, also known as "tapuy" or "tapey," is a traditional Filipino rice wine that is popular in the Ilocos region of the Philippines. It is made by fermenting glutinous rice with yeast, resulting in a sweet and tangy alcoholic beverage. Here are some examples of how bubud is used in Filipino cuisine:

  1. Marinating meat: Bubud is often used as a marinade for meat dishes, such as chicken or pork. The acidic properties of the wine help to tenderize the meat and add flavor.

  2. Cooking rice: Bubud can be used to flavor and color rice dishes, such as "tinubong," a traditional Ilocano rice cake wrapped in bamboo leaves.

  3. Drinking: Bubud is also enjoyed as a beverage on its own, either chilled or at room temperature. It is often served during celebrations and special occasions.

  4. Vinegar: Bubud can be further fermented to create "suka," a type of vinegar that is used in many Filipino dishes, such as adobo and sinigang.

Bubud has a long history in Filipino culture, and is considered a symbol of friendship and hospitality. It is often served to guests as a sign of respect and welcome. In recent years, bubud has gained popularity in other parts of the Philippines and around the world, as more people discover its unique flavor and cultural significance.
