A deeply rich, amazingly smooth and historic Bourbon returns to the US and the world.

Issac Wolfe (I.W.) Bernheim famously came the United States in 1867 with $4 cash to his name and the clothes on his back. He got a job as a bookkeeper for a liquor company and saved his pennies, eventually opening his own distribution business in 1872. Soon, he was distilling and bottling his own brand of premium Bourbon under the I.W. Harper name to avoid confusion with his Bernheim Distribution business. For decades, all I.W. Harper Bourbon was exported. But a few years ago Diegeo purchased the company and has now returned this historic and tasty Bourbon to its original market and made it available in the United States once again.

I.W. Harper 15 Year Old is just really really good. Let’s start with the basics. The mash bill is 86% corn, 8% malted barley, and only 6% rye. And yes … the center-cut spirit is aged a full fifteen years in new American white oak. If you are a Bourbon fan, those numbers tell you the entire story. It’s perfectly sweet, very smooth, and has a fruit-forward character and just a hint of spice that holds your interest. It’s a lovely dram best sipped and savored neat. Enjoy.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
