Jacob Rieger & Company was founded in 1887 in Kansas City’s West Bottoms Livestock Exchange district. The brand offered over 100 alcoholic products. In 1919, Prohibition was enacted by the federal government and wasn’t reversed until 1933. J. Rieger & Co. was a casualty at the time, but nearly a century following Prohibition, J. Rieger is proud once again to call Kansas City their home.
Their distillery offers daily tours, multiple bars, rentable space for private events, a 3,000 square foot historical exhibit, gift shop, and did we mention they have a slide? Because they have a slide!
