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.
