An inspired bartender named M.W. Heron created Southern Comfort in a small bar in New Orleans. He took the harsh unrefined whiskeys of the time, mixed them with his own blend of fruits and spices and bottled a uniquely sweet and smooth spirit, unlike any other. More than 140 years later, his unique creation is still enjoyed at celebrations all over the world. No matter what the occasion.
