Just in time for the spooky season, downtown San Antonio’s Maverick Whiskey has launched Spirits With Spirits ghost tours pairing drinks and spooktacular tall tales, thanks to its history-rich home.

The distillery is now offering on-site tours which include stories of the spirits who haunt Maverick Whiskey — alongside sips of spirits of the boozy persuasion produced at the distillery.

The multi-use facility — which houses Maverick’s bar, restaurant and distillery — sits on what was originally former San Antonio mayor Samuel Maverick’s homestead, just steps away from the Alamo.

The building was also once a firehouse that, ironically, caught fire twice, and it housed the historic Lockwood National Bank building from 1865 to 1907. The bank, the San Antonio Express-News reports, was once advertised to be burglar-proof as there was “a six-shooter in every teller’s drawer and a double-barreled shotgun behind the railing as protection against holdups.”

Sounds like the makings of some hair-raising tales to us.

Folks interested in booking a spooky reservation-only tour can do so by calling the distillery. Private VIP ghost tours for groups of six ghouls or less can be booked online.

So many restaurants, so little time. Find out the latest San Antonio dining news with our Flavor Friday Newsletter.
