J. Rieger Distillery Tour
J. RIEGER DISTILLERY TOUR
ONLY 50 TICKETS AVAILABLE!
Missouri Preservation invites you to join Andy Rieger on a tour of the J. Rieger Distillery in the historic East Bottoms neighborhood of Kansas City, MO.
Our host Andy Rieger is a direct descendant of Jacob Rieger, originator of J. Rieger & Co. – the largest mail-order whiskey house in the United States prior to the onset of federal Prohibition in 1920. In 2014, Andy revived the J. Rieger distilling business, “relocating” the original West Bottoms distillery to the former Heim Brothers Bottling Plant.
One ticket procures you an evening of local history and family lore, a personal tour of one of Kansas City’s “newest” old businesses, two J. Rieger specialty cocktails, and snacks from neighbor and purveyor of local meats and treats – the Local Pig.
