We Collaborated with Sebastian’s to make This Refreshing Manille Sorbet

March 5, 2020

Everyone is talking about Sebastian’s. Mad genius Ian Carandang has made some of the craziest cold concoctions Manila has ever seen—from multi-layered popsicles, to ampalaya sorbet, to mangga’t bagoong ice cream. Even before diners were ready to try bold combinations, the sorbetero has been pushing envelopes and challenging palates, to create both a flavor and experience that is uniquely his own.


We love Sebastian’s so much that we decided we desperately needed to make our own, Pepper.ph signature flavor. We threw around tons of ideas from turon, to bacon, to taho. But ultimately, this smooth combination won us all over. It’s a little more adult and sophisticated, but has a secret kick that is indicative of Pepper’s irreverence. Sebastian’s has churned out a Manille Liqueur sorbet that has an incredible consistency, smooth instead of icy. It is tart with an alcoholic note that teases, but is refreshing all the same. Studded with candied dayap and pearls of nata de coco, it is an incredibly Pinoy product too. If you want to get a taste of what defines us, and what Sebastian’s awesome philosophy is all about, you better grab a scoop these summer months.

The Manille Sorbet will be available at Sebastian’s branches starting next Friday, May 8, 2015.
