I. W. Harper 1970s
Isaac Wolfe Bernheim (1848 to 1945) was an American businessman notable for starting the I. W. Harper brand of premium bourbon whiskey. The success of his distillery and distribution business helped to consolidate the Louisville area as a major centre of Kentucky bourbon distilling. Bernheim was also a philanthropist, establishing the 14,000-acre Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest in Bullitt County.
The company began the production of an elite whiskey brand it called “I. W. Harper”. (The “I. W.” in the name may have been an abbreviation for “Isaac Wolfe”, with a different surname chosen for marketability.) During the Prohibition era in the U.S. [1920 to1933], Bernheim Brothers was one of only ten distilleries allowed to continue to make bourbon, as they had received a license to produce it for medicinal purposes.
