Treat Mum to a glamourous new gin this Mother’s Day

Treat your Mother this Mother’s Day to Santa Ana, a new gin inspired by the inimitable dancehall days of 1920s Manila and its crown jewel, the legendary Santa Ana Cabaret. Set amidst the splendour of the Philippine Art Deco Movement, Santa Ana Cabaret was a musical playground for Manileños of the time and its new, namesake gin evokes the glamour and decadence of this unforgettable era and is guaranteed to make any mother feel equally as beguiling.

Distilled in the Charente region of France to extract four native Philippine botanicals: Ylang Ylang, Alpinia, Calamansi and Dalandan, Santa Ana’s combination of delicate floral top notes and a fresh tropical citrus palate complements the seven traditional botanicals (including Juniper, Bitter Orange, Angelica and Orris Roots, Fennel) used in the gin, to create a richly exotic taste profile. The Philippines, as one of the worlds’ biodiversity hot spots, has a range of flora and fauna quite unique in the world, including Santa Ana’s signature botanical Ylang-Ylang, also used as the main ingredient in luxury perfumes such as the iconic Chanel No. 5.

A playground to the rich and famous, Santa Ana’s guests danced to the music of Vic Hernandez and the Swing-sational, with a range of styles, from the Charleston to the tango and waltzes, blues and jazz., this period in the Philippines was an age of optimism and opulence. Evoking the nostalgia of a smoky tropical champagne room, big band swing and the glamour and decadence of days gone by, the beautifully crafted Santa Ana Gin, presented in an exquisite Art Deco inspired bespoke bottle, is a love letter to 1920s Manila and brings the optimism and opulence of this iconic era firmly into the 2020s. Gift your mum this love letter and she is sure to feel totally spoilt. Santa Ana Gin is inspired by this iconic musical era and delivers a sensory experience like none other. She can explore the Sounds of Santa Ana Gin with this playlist on Spotify here.
