 06/05/2021.- Ordum nuevo patrocinador del Memorial Maria Luisa
Estamos encantados de comunicar la incorporación de Ordum como nuevo patrocinador del Certamen.

Y no es por casualidad.

Para los que a√ɬļn no lo saben, el agua utilizada en la elaboraci√≥n artesanal de esta cerveza es la propia del centenario Balneario de Borines, lo que le proporciona unas cualidades exclusivas, a la vez que la impregna de la historia apasionante del lugar donde se fabrica. Todo ello la convierte en una cerveza, simplemente, √ɬļnica.

Un placer comprobar cómo hay marcas que desde sus comienzos demuestran el compromiso que mantienen con la sociedad en general, y este patrocinio es un ejemplo de ello.

Y daremos nuestro primer paso juntos a lo grande. Ordum y el Memorial nos encontraremos el próximo sábado 8, a las 19:00; en nuestra Gala Virtual de Premios que podrás seguir desde esta misma web.

Bienvenidos a este Certamen, que ya es el vuestro!
