Legend has it that Cuff & Buttons was the original name of Southern Comfort liqueur, created in the heart of New Orleans' French Quarter by a bartender named Martin Wilkes Heron.
Whiskey was served straight from barrels which arrived in New Orleans from Tennessee down the Mississippi River, and in 1874, he started work to use this whiskey as a base for a liqueur. Lemon, lime, orange and cherry all grew locally, and New Orleans was a thriving port, so he also had access to spices such as Moroccan cinnamon and Mexican vanilla. When Heron launched his liqueur in 1889, there was already another popular liqueur on the market called Hats & Tails, so he named his liqueur Cuffs & Buttons.
