Truly one-of-a-kind, and an ultra unique gift!

Fun, colorful, and super detailed, this apron was carefully stitched back in 1978 for an aficionado of Southern Comfort whiskey. The item was even displayed in the liquor company’s headquarters in Louisville KY before being returned to its Massachusetts owner. It was also featured in the company’s Side-Wheeler employee newsletter, one copy of which is included in this sale.

The apron was never used for actual cooking, just cherished and admired by the woman who received it as a gift. So it remains in original pristine condition. The whiskey-colored cotton base is decorated with a faithful replica of the product’s gold-bordered paper label, right down to the instantly recognizable font style to the iconic plantation home and the steaming riverboat.

Measures 42” wide across bottom, and 36” from front neckline to hem. Blue rickrack trims the upper front edges and neckband; the same blue tape forms the ties. A maker’s label is stitched into the reverse side.

This garment was a labor of love, and should be loved again by another Southern Comfort fan. What a kick this would be at a party of like-minded beverage connoisseurs!

Cash only, please. Pickup near downtown Rockland.
