About the J. Rieger & Co.
Jacob Rieger & Company was originally founded in 1887 in Kansas City’s West Bottoms Livestock Exchange district. The distillery produced over 100 alcoholic products on a national basis, including the iconic Monogram Whiskey, but it was forced to close in 1919 with the advent of Prohibition. In 2014, 95 years after Prohibition, the brand was relaunched by business partners Ryan Maybee, creator of Manifesto, and Andy Rieger, the great-great-great-grandson of Jacob Rieger. The core product line includes Kansas City Whiskey, Midwestern Dry Gin, Caffè Amaro, and Premium Wheat Vodka.

This Julys begin a new chapter of the J. Rieger & Co. story, with the opening of a visitor experience for the first time in the company’s 132 year history. Located in the historic Electric Park district of Kansas City, just 3 minutes East of the River Market, the new distillery will offer daily tours and tastings, two distinct bar spaces serving cocktails, food, beer and wine, as well as space for private events.
