I.W. Harper Gold Medal Kentucky Straight Bourbon 1980s / Stock Import
The I.W. prefix in this brand name derives from Isaac Wolfe Bernheim, who founded the brand. With his brother he helped establish Louisville in Kentucky as a centre for Bourbon production. Sadly, he felt Harper was a more marketable name than his own to apply to the bottles.
This was distilled and bottled at the Bernheim distillery in Louisville in 1989.
United Distillers discontinued the I.W. Harper brand in the US in 1980s, but still exported some bottles like this overseas. The modern iteration of United Distillers, Diageo, revived the brand in 2015.
Stock import for the Italian market.
