J. Rieger & Co. Whiskey Tasting at Spirit Wine and Craft!


Spirit Wine and Craft location
5760 Chippewa Street, Saint Louis, Missouri 63109

Come see us and try J.Rieger & Co. Whiskey this FRIDAY AUGUST 5TH from 4:30-6:30pm
The line up will feature these four whiskeys...
*not all whiskeys are available for purchase
J. Rieger & Co. Kansas City Whiskey...$32.99 / 750ml
Our Kansas City Whiskey is a blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Light Corn Whiskey, and Straight Rye Whiskey, all aged at least 4 years, as well as a small amount of 15 year old Oloroso Sherry from the Williams & Humbert Bodega in Jerez. Bottled at 92 proof, Kansas City Whiskey is well-balanced, smooth, and slightly sweet. It’s beautiful when served neat or on the rocks, but also works well in classic Bourbon – or Rye-based cocktails such as the Horsefeather, Manhattan and Old Fashioned.
92 Proof | ABV: 46%

J. Rieger & Co. KU Championship Straight Bourbon...$71.99 / 750ml
The Limited Edition 2022 National Championship Bourbon was produced by J. Rieger & Co. in partnership with the University of Kansas.

This Bourbon was distilled at J. Rieger & Co. from a mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley. This Straight Bourbon is a marriage of hand-picked barrels from some of our earliest distillations, dating back to 2016, that were selected specifically to commemorate KU’s 2022 National Championship win.

J. Rieger & Co. Bottled In Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey...$69.99 / 750ml
This Bottled in Bond Bourbon is as American as the story of J. Rieger & Co. itself. Founded by immigrants in 1887 and assumed to be a permanent casualty of prohibition, our distillery was revived in 2014 by a group of modern pioneers that included the great, great, great-grandson of Jacob Rieger himself.

This Bourbon, distilled from corn, rye, and malted barley, has aged for six years in our rickhouse, and is the first offering of this spirit since our resurrection.
J. Rieger & Co. Monogram Whiskey
Rieger’s 2022 MONOGRAM WHISKEY once again showcases the rare and unique flavors from the gorgeous Oloroso Sherry Botas of our Whiskey Solera. Since 2017, Rieger’s Monogram Whiskey has been created using four nearly century-old 500-liter barrels (referred to in Spain as “botas”) that were removed from the actual solera of the Williams & Humbert Drysack 15-year Oloroso Especial and shipped to our distillery in Kansas City. For this year’s release, we chose to utilize just 5 of these 10 casks, all filled with Bourbon, marking the first time that our Monogram bottling will be a Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
