What: Zephyr Gin Austin launch party

Where: Geraldine's

The lowdown: On October 24, Zephyr Gin stirred things up with a fabulous Austin launch party. The festive affair, hosted at Geraldine's at the Hotel Van Zandt, featured cocktails (gin-based, naturally); light bites; festive photo ops; and special swag.

The evening also served as an opportunity for some of Austin's brightest in the bar and restaurant industry to mix and mingle. Over the course of the evening, guests gathered in the Geraldine's bar to relax, catch up, and take in the expansive skyline views.

Not previously available in Austin, the company is looking to make a splash in the local cocktail scene. In addition to the Capital City, Zephyr launched in Houston the week before with a chic affair at OKRA Charity Bar.
