Azar Family Brands, founder of San Antonio’s Seersucker Southern Style Gin, is opening the first phase of Seersucker Distillery on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas.
Launched in late 2016, Seersucker is the world’s first and only Southern Style Gin and is slow-distilled with all-natural botanicals, including citrus, garden fresh mint and clove honey.
Seersucker Distillery sits on six acres of South Texas landscape and features a remodeled 5,000 square-foot distilling and bottling facility, a new tasting room and an expansive outdoor lawn complete with Seersucker-branded furniture, picnic tables and lawn games. The tasting room will proudly serve the brand’s cocktails as well as Cinco Five Star Vodka cocktails.
Designed by Pascal Delisse, the new tasting room incorporates Seersucker’s signature blue and white accents, herringbone-laid wooden floors, large windows for natural lighting and a custom Seersucker Southern Style Gin bar. An installation of piping above the bar will flow with individual batches of Seersucker, functionally transporting the gin from the distilling area to the bottling line, while also providing a unique design element within the space. Views of the distilling facility and bottling line offer guests an inside look into Seersucker’s distilling and packaging process.
“Opening the doors to Seersucker Distillery is like opening the doors to our own home. With the help of our team, we’ve created an inviting space where guests can be part of our process or simply relax and enjoy Southern-inspired cocktails.”
– Trey Azar, Founder and Master Distiller of Seersucker Southern Style Gin
Phase two of the Seersucker Distillery, scheduled to be finished in spring 2018, will include the completion of “The Grand Lawn” which will be used for events, a turf court for bocce ball, bag toss and washers, as well as an area for food trucks.
Beginning on Feb. 15, 2018, Seersucker Distillery will be open Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Self-guided tours, tastings and signature cocktails will be available while minimal construction takes place.
