A rich, illustrious part of Philippine history includes the emergence of Manila as a hub of entertainment from the early 1910s to the 1940s.
A large dinner and dance club, Santa Ana Cabaret was the “largest cabaret in the world with the best dance music in the Orient”. At over 3000 m2, this massive Art Deco, white linen tablecloth and dance floor-adorned club attracted well-heeled Manileños and American visitors alike.
By the 1920s, the Santa Ana Cabaret’s reputation grew, peaking in the late 1920s/early 1930s — which coincidentally was the height of Prohibition in the US.
Playground to the rich and famous, Santa Ana guests danced to the music of Vic Hernandez & the Swing-sational, to a range of styles from the Charleston to the Tango and Waltzes, Blues and Jazz.

As the brand is inspired by a lively, energetic musical era, Santa Ana Gin has music as part of its DNA, delivering a multi-sensorial brand experience alongside fragrance, palate, and visually striking elements.
Santa Ana Gin leans towards a high energy sound that is closely tied to the underground dance music scene. Modern, yet still capturing the essence of the 1920s -1940s Jazz Age. It’s tasteful, eclectic and adventurous, yet quite accessible and pleasing to the ears, much like Santa Ana Gin is to the palate.
