- ABV 30%
In 1874 M.W. Heron, a bartender, developed Southern Comfort in his bar near La Rue Bourbon in New Orleans and first served it in traditional fashion from a whiskey barrel. In 1934 after a short break in production due to Prohibition, Southern Comfort introduced their current distinctive label featuring the now famous Currier and Ives lithograph of a Southern plantation house on the banks of the Mississippi. The plantation is known as "Woodland Plantation", built in 1834. Southern enthusiasts can visit the newly renovated mansion, which now operates as a 9-bedroom country inn.
Southern's identity as a bourbon lies only in its origins. Its inception was in an awful whisky batch that Heron was attempting to improve. Actually, Southern Comfort is a Peach Liqueur, and one of the few peach liqueurs on the market. Produced using neutral spirit and over 100 ingredients, the final liqueur matures for eight months prior to bottling. Sweet and rich with a mollasses background and faint medicinal flavour, it is today enjoyed as America’s “Take it easy Drink”. Southern is best drunk straight, on the rocks or with cola.
Tasting note: Translucent bronze, Vaporous, perfume, and orange blossom nose. A smooth, round attack leads to a medium-to full-bodied palate of thin, candied orange, pitted fruit, marshmallow candy, and brown spices. Finishes with a wash of heat, tropical fruit candy, and kiddy cough syrup-like flavor. Lacks the traditional whisky backbone of flavor—reformulated?
