Have you ever wondered about the mansion on the label of Southern Comfort bottles? It's called Woodland, a real Louisiana plantation house and the last of its kind along the great effluvial delta of the Mississippi that juts far into the Gulf of Mexico. It has been restored and transformed into a beautiful, nine-bedroom inn, filled with period antiques, and looks across the gardens at another salvage project, a century-old wooden Baptist church rescued from a nearby town. The plantation's owners, the Creppel family, have turned the church into a restaurant and bar called Spirits and it comes as no surprise that house cocktails are based on Southern Comfort. The popular flavored whiskey was invented in New Orleans in 1875. This cocktail was created by the firm's ambassador, Lou Giglio, in honour of Woodland plantation.
