Southern Comfort Special Reserve Liqueur

Our Products: Whiskies > Whisky Liqueurs

Southern Comfort liqueur was invented in the heart of New Orleans' famous French Quarter in 1874 by a bartender named Martin Wilkes "M.W" Heron. Back then, whiskey was a popular drink, yet the quality was not always decent. Whiskey barrels would arrive in New Orleans from Tennessee and Kentucky down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers and Heron sometimes didn't know it was even drinkable. So he began working on a recipe to create a whiskey-based drink with a consistent flavour. As New Orleans was a thriving port city, Heron had an access to many fruits and some of the finest spices coming through the port such as Moroccan cinnamon and Mexican vanilla. He then began blending various fruits and spices together and finally perfected the recipe of Southern Comfort. The original blending recipe remains secret to this day.

The pairing of Southern Comfort with an aged bourbon has resulted in a more pronounced bourbon taste that highlights rich oak, caramel and vanilla notes that dominate the palate. Mellowing any sharp whiskey notes are Southern Comfort's fruit flavours such as rich orange, sweet lemon and cherry, as well as subtler undertones of tobacco, cinnamon and spice. The result is an impressively balanced drink that will excite consumers of premium bourbons, scotches and rums alike.

Closure: STELVIN

Alternative wine closures are substitute closures used in the wine industry for sealing wine bottles in place of traditional cork closures. The emergence of these alternatives has grown in response to quality control efforts by winemakers to protect against "cork taint" caused by the presence of the chemical trichloroanisole (TCA).

Screw caps or "Stelvin caps" are closures made only from aluminium material that threads onto the bottleneck. They are the predominant closure used by New Zealand wineries.[8][9] This can be attributed in part to the New Zealand screw cap initiative which promotes the use of screw caps instead of cork. Screw caps form a tighter seal and can keep out oxygen for a longer time than cork. These benefits aid in maintaining the wine's overall quality and aging potential.

Vino-Seal, or Vino-Lok, is a plastic/glass closure released by Alcoa. Since its introduction into the European market in 2003, over 300 wineries have utilized Vino-Seal. Using a glass stopper with an inert o-ring, the Vino-Seal creates a hermetic seal that prevents oxidation and TCA contamination.

Zork is an alternative wine closure that seals like a screw cap and pops like a cork. The Zork closure consists of three parts; an outer cap providing a tamper evident clamp that locks onto the band of a standard cork mouth bottle, an inner metal foil which provides an oxygen barrier similar to a screw cap, and an inner plunger which creates the ‘pop’ on extraction and reseals after use.

The traditional crowned bottle cap has been used in the sparkling wine industry as a closure during the bottle fermentation process (méthode traditionnelle). Normally the cap is replaced with a cork before shipping, though recently some producers are releasing wines using the crown cap as their closure.
