We estimate this to be an early 70’s bottling done as a cocktail set by I.W. Harper. Almost complete, with box and the necessary tools to shake up your cocktail! Very nice gift for a fan of early bourbon dusties. This is the very first we have ever seen to have both the box as well as the cocktail set still included.
The man responsible for launching the I.W.Harper brand is certainly a notable one among bourbon lovers. Isaac Wolfe Bernheim started production of the brand during the prohibition era in the US (1920-1933). During that time, 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.
