Based on my personal experience and discussion with friends. I estimate the the beer, wine and spirits business in New Orleans has more than recovered from Katrina. I heard that over at Tom Fitzmoris's forum these was a healthy discussion along those lines.
Southern Comfort was invented in New Orleans, but first bottled in Memphis. The plantation shown on the Southern Comfort label is Woodland located in West Pointe a la Hache, Paquemines Parish on the west bank of the Mississippi, south of New Orleans.
Constructed in 1843 Woodland survived Katrina and is open as a bed and breakfast. Spirits Hall on the grounds is open as well.
