Jacob Rieger & Co. 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 co-founder of The Rieger, and Andy Rieger, the great-great-great-grandson of Jacob Rieger.

The current distillery is located in the historic Electric Park district within the East Bottoms of Kansas City. The core spirit product line includes Kansas City Whiskey, Midwestern Dry Gin, Caffè Amaro, and Premium Wheat Vodka. For more information, visit www.JRiegerCo.com.   J. Rieger & Co. was recently named one of the country’s Best New Attractions by USA Today and was the only alcohol producer in the country to make the distinguished list.
