A pleasant transaction with a trustworthy wine seller

I haven't met an adult who hasn't bought or at least tasted liquor even once in their lifetime. That being said, liquor is a popular gift perfect for the Holidays. A distinguished person who has almost everything in their lives, even an ordinary simple folk, will surely appreciate wine given as a present. It symbolizes celebrations, happy memories.


Many corporations spend on corporate gifts for their valued clients. Wouldn't it be great if your regular liquor spending  could give you rewards and freebies?

Gurkka.com is a novel concept. It was established just this October 2013, but its mother company, Global Noble International Corporation or GNIC, (Milkita lollipops and candies, endorsed by actress Judy Ann Santos, is one of its popular goods) has been in the business for ten years.

What I admire about Gurkka.com is their thrust in promoting responsible drinking and knowledge about liquor. Yeah wine is delicious. To appreciate it, I know that after pouring it from the bottle, smell, swirl the contents of the glass, smell again, sip and let it stay in your mouth for a bit before swallowing. Cheers! But I have to admit I don't know Cabernet from Carmenere. Good thing, they have a Trivia and Wines and Spirits Glossary Page. Knowledge empowers you and helps you make a wise choice in choosing your liquor.

How to order: Easy as 1-2-3 with a user friendly site

  1. Register for free; fill in your details, click the email they send you, then log in
  2. Choose what you want, then the computer will generate what your freebies are based on the order
  3. Choose payment and delivery options
And you're done! Hassle free and quick response. You may call their hotline, email or message their FB for concerns. They have friendly and accommodating staff, and more than willing to supply you with the info.

In my case, it was pick up orders. (You may also avail FREE delivery within NCR for Php 1,000 worth of purchase. ) I need to bring the printed voucher and a valid ID by 4 PM. I was coming from LRT 5th Station Caloocan and here's how to get to their office.

Directions:
  • From the LRT walk straight going to Araneta Avenue (but it's just a short distance, you won't reach La Loma) and ride in the jeepney terminal going to Quezon Avenue
  • The ride's end is at the Sanctuarium, beside that there is a jeepney terminal bound for SM Sta Mesa, ride there
  • Tell the driver to drop you off at ILO Building, 195 G. Araneta Avenue, Quezon City, Philippines, past Puregold QI.
