Vintage Southern Comfort bottle with label showing an illustration of Woodland Plantation. The label was subsequently redesigned in 2010.

Since the 1930s, the image on the label of Southern Comfort has been a rendering by Alfred Waud of Currier & Ives' A Home on the Mississippi, depicting Woodland Plantation. In 2010, Southern Comfort was rebranded and the plantation artwork was dropped from the label.[3]
