Don't Say Gin Say Gilbey's - Jack O'Hagan
This jingle for Gilbey's Gin was composed by Jack O'Hagan in the 1940s or 50s.
After the Second World War, O’Hagan’s catchy comedic and topical songs declined in popularity. He successfully moved into advertising, joining O’Brien Publicity and penning jingles for 14 years, until his retirement in 1965.
Popular English gin brand Gilbey’s has had a long association with Australia. Local distribution began in the early 20th century, and continued through the establishment of the W&A Gilbey Distillery at Moorabbin in 1937.
