GSM Premium Gin brought elevated cocktail experience and the arts together at the recent Art in the Park held at the Jaime Velasquez Park, Salcedo Village in Makati City. Art in the Park is a gathering of a diverse group of artists and art enthusiasts with the mission of making visual arts accessible to everyone. 

While art aficionados enjoyed GSM Premium Gin’s handcrafted cocktails, they also contributed in producing a unique art installation wherein returned cocktail cups were recycled and turned into an instant art work that formed a rendition of the iconic Ginebra San Miguel logo of National Artist Fernando Amorsolo.

Through Art in the Park, we help grow local talent which is just the beginning of the greater things in store for the brand and for the art community,” said GSM Premium Gin Assistant Brand Manager Giselle Villanueva.
The Instagram-worthy GSM Premium Gin Cart was likewise an attraction in itself. Inspired by the 183 years of heritage and history of Ginebra San Miguel, the gin cart is also highlighted by the iconic logo of Amorsolo etched on its wooden finish. The full-service mobile bar offered visitors Ginebra San Miguel Premium Gin in expertly crafted cocktails such as the refreshing Calamansi Surprise, Sweet Lemony Martini and Mango Paradise, plus the classic Gin and Tonic, prepared by Ginebra San Miguel’s world-class mixologists.
