Tequila probably. Whiskey definitely. Gin, however, might not be the first thing some people think of when they think of favored Texas spirits. But those people would be wrong—particularly after paying a visit to Seersucker Distillery in San Antonio. Here, the gin is slow-distilled in “Betty”—a handhammered copper pot still—and blended with all-natural botanicals.

Co-founded by husband and wife Trey and Kimberly Azar, Seersucker Distillery, set on 6 acres of South Texas landscape, is located about 15 minutes from downtown San Antonio. Home of Southern Style Gin, the property includes a 5,000-square-foot distilling and bottling facility and tasting room that can accommodate groups of up to 70 standing or 40 seated. Team-building activities can include mixing cocktail concoctions and taking a guided tour of the distillery.

In 2021, the focus is on wellness. In Texas, there’s a spa for that.

The last two years have been, to put it mildly, challenging. Showing your team some appreciation for a job well done with a little spa pampering will allow them to relax and regroup together. Whether you’re looking to make a day, weekend or week of it, Texas has a spa retreat to suit your needs. 

Make a Week of It

 

Temperatures are starting to dip in Seattle, but if you want to get in one last outdoor gathering before winter, consider The Rooftop at WeWork Cap Hill.

Capacity: 74.  Bring sweaters and scarves!
