Napper Tandy Fine Rye Whiskey
Darrel, we consulted with the Chris Morris, master distiller for Woodford Reserve -and- a very knowledgeable historian of American whiskeys. He gave us this information: "Napper Tandy Rye is from the Loma Grande Co, of Chicago (thus the Irish harp symbol on the case). This firm was primarily a wine merchant so this whiskey was its own blend, crafted from bulk purchases. They were a very small player with a bond of $30,000 - $40,000. Their plant was located in Chicago at 17 W. Michigan Street. The brand was not resurrected after Prohibition."
If you want to have it valued, you can try contacting Rik Pike at Bonhams NYC - 917-206-1644. Another option - contact Digger Odell at bottlebooks.com. Good luck and please keep us posted if you're able to obtain an value and any additional history which we can add to this thread!
