"The I.W. HARPER bourbon was first produced in 1872 with intent to be the Bernheim Bros. flagship brand. Isaac Wolfe Bernheim knew he needed to make the brand sound American for marketing purposes. He saw an article in a newspaper about John Harper, owner of the racehorse Ten Broeck. Bernheim decided to bottle the bourbon as I.W. HARPER, using his initials and Harper’s last name. The bourbon soon began to win awards at spirit competitions at home and abroad. The first award came at the New Orleans Exposition of 1885, then at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, followed by wins at the Exposition Universal, Paris, France, 1900, the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, St. Louis, 1904 and the Greater Louisville Exposition 1907. With five gold medals awarded to I.W. HARPER, it became known as the “Gold Medal” bourbon."
"Now in this year of 2015, the proud history continues with the return of I.W. HARPER to the American market. It is a premium quality bourbon rich in heritage and tradition. The Bowing Man of I.W. HARPER Straight Kentucky Bourbon at 82 proof, and I.W. HARPER 15-Year Old at 86 proof, will once again remind consumers that 'It is always a pleasure.'"
