Azar Family Brands, the locally based company that makes Seersucker gin and Cinco vodka, made a splash during the opening night festivities at the 2018 San Antonio Cocktail Conference with the announcement of two new gin products.

Owners Trey and Kimberly Azar debuted a line of Seersucker lemon and lime flavored gins at their high-traffic booth. They should hit the market in the next few months, priced at $24.99.

The recipes for both of the gins provided at the conference recommend simply pouring the spirits over ice and adding a splash of a favorite mixer.

Seersucker gin goes through a slow copper pot distilling process and is made in small batches that are rested and cut with water to create an 84 proof spirit. The taste profile has hints of juniper, cloves, honey and mint.

A new Seersucker Distillery also is nearing the end of the construction process, with a grand-opening celebration slated for May 5. That just so happens to be Cinco de Mayo, the running of the annual Kentucky Derby, a Saturday, and around the 300-year anniversary of the creation of gin as a recognized beverage.

“It’s really an aligning of the stars,” Trey Azar said about the date. “We have to be ready to go by then. But we couldn’t be more excited about the direction things are going.”
