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%
Rieger's Bourbon Bottled in Bond...$69.99
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. That brings us to today. After 6 long years in 53-gallon white American Oak barrels, the first barrels of Bourbon we made back in 2015 are finally ready. This batch of Bourbon is bottled at 100 proof and meets the additional qualifiers to be designated as Bottled in Bond, the most strict category of American Whiskey. This bottling marks the beginning of our Bourbon program. We have only ramped up as the years have gone on and we are looking at a rickhouse full of thousands of barrels. We look forward to bringing you Rieger’s Bourbon for generations to come.
J. Rieger Straight Rye Whiskey 6 Year Bottled in-Bond…$42.99
This whiskey is a pot distilled rye that consists of 96% rye and 4% malted barley. We really wanted to showcase the rye and that is why we chose to make it a very dominant rye grain bill. We distilled this rye paying very close attention to the spice that we all know and love from rye whiskeys and made sure that what we put in the barrel had the aggressive spice we had hoped for. This whiskey was aged for 6 years in new, charred white oak barrels from Independent Stave in Lebanon, Missouri.
Rieger Six Columns MIzzou Bourbon Whiskey....$35.99
When two Missouri institutions known for excellence join in partnership, the result is one outstanding whiskey: Six Columns Straight Bourbon Whiskey by J. Rieger & Co. Just as every Tiger knows the Columns as the center of countless traditions and celebrations, this special bourbon will be front and center in MU traditions and celebrations, too, from tailgates and watch parties to all Tiger-related activities. Distilled and aged at least four years in our historic distillery and rickhouse right here in Missouri, this whiskey is inspired by the bold spirit of Mizzou.
“Let these Columns stand. Let them stand a thousand years.” Cheers to MU!
