J. Rieger & Co. Whiskey

Located in the East Bottoms, the renewed J. Rieger & Co. is flourishing. With a newly assembled still, and plenty of high quality sherry, Ryan Maybee and Andy Rieger’s venture into whiskey has been something all of Kansas City benefits from.
Once one of the midwest’s most popular whiskeys, J. Rieger fell off the grid after Prohibition began, but not before the family built The Rieger Hotel, currently home of The Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange and Manifesto.
Tours (and tastings) are available, and I definitely recommend checking it out. The entire process is filled with historical intrigue and local love.
