11 Dead After Drinking Coconut Wine In the Philippines


Sky News:–  At least 11 people have died after drinking coconut wine in the Philippines, including some who were celebrating at a Christmas party.

Authorities also say more than 300 others were treated in hospital after consuming lambanog in Laguna and Quezon, south of Manila.

Many were admitted after Laguna’s mayor, Vener Munoz in Rizal, urged people to see medical advice following the deaths between Thursday and Sunday.

Lambanog is popular in provinces and often consumed during holidays and celebrations.

Unregulated production and sales of the beverage are common in the Southeast Asian country and it is often made illegally with dangerous additives.

Jonas Del Rosario, a spokesperson from the Philippine General Hospital, said: “Lambanog (coconut wine) is being fermented from the sap of a coconut flower.

“If it is fermented, it produces methanol during the fermentation. Sometimes, the lambanog being sold has too much methanol content.”


  1. Well I can remember what happened in Cooly Town,and what is worst we the people never got the real investigation,presented to the whole country.Our authorities have a serious problem,they never do anything properly,so that means to say they are not performing their duty.So why the hell do we have to put up with all this crap of mediocry investigators that can never reach any conclusion or put the finger on any culprit.How complicated is it to investigate who stole the methanol from a funeral parlour,and who sold it to the shop owner,that fabricated the coctail,that killed people.Is the shop still working does the owner still hold a license to sell alcohol to customers.Is this the way we expect to ever get better in this mediocre country,of idiots and corrupt goverment employes.Lets keep on killing hurray,merry Cristmas.

    • That is new information I was not aware of. Will investigate with the help of Dr. Watson as you have given us new clues. Hmmm.

  2. None of what has been said by fisherman is new,but what might be new is the analitic way he put it out.If you start looking at all the information the videos the recordings and conversations of the neighbours and people that were there.It would be great if we could reach the bottom of all this,how many victims and how many deaths,and we dont have a clue yet.
