"Isaac Wolfe Bernheim was born in Germany in 1848, and by 1867 had arrived in New York with only $4 in his pocket but rich in ambition. He peddled goods on horseback until the fateful passing of his horse, which led him to a job as a bookkeeper at a wholesale liquor business. Denied a promised partnership after years of work at the firm, I.W. Bernheim and his brother Bernard set off on their own, and a legend began.
I.W. HARPER bourbon takes root as Isaac Wolfe and Bernard Bernheim along with silent partner Eldrige Palmer start Bernheim Bros. distillery in Paducah, Kentucky with $3200. Just a few years later the Bernheim brothers acquire the I.W. HARPER trademark.
And now the I.W. Harper brand is returning home for the first time in nearly 20 years, with the release of I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The unique offering commemorates the original whiskeys produced by the brand, as it’s reintroduced in the United States with a commitment to authenticity that only 142 years of experience can provide."
I know from my history as a bartender that whiskey drinkers are very picky about what kind of whiskey they drink. This is a great gift idea for that whiskey drinker on your gift list. Or if you just want a great gift to take to a holiday party, make sure to grab a bottle of I.W. Harper Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey to surprise them with! It is 82 proof and retails for $35.00.
