Don’t you know that wheat is the way to go?
In the wild and rowdy stockyards of Kansas City's West Bottoms, known as "The Wettest Block in the World," the thirst for spirits was unquenchable, with men from both sides of the state line flocking to the area in search of a stiff drink. And lucky for them, in 1885, a man named Jacob Rieger arrived from Austria-Hungary to the wild west and established J. Rieger & Co. When Jacob's son Alexander took over the family business in 1900, he transformed it into the largest mail-order whiskey business in the US, just in time for Prohibition to spoil the party. Years passed, and the city's "Spirited" history was almost forgotten, until Ryan Maybee, a local bartender, decided to bring it back to life. He joined forces with Andy Rieger, a descendant of the legendary Jacob Rieger, and rounded up some of the biggest names in the industry, including Dave Pickerell, Steve Olson, Tom Nichol, and Nathan Perry.
Potatoes, corn, and rye? Yawn. Rieger & Co. Chiefs Championship Vodka starts out with a premium wheat neutral grain Spirit as the foundation, because wheat is the one that infuses it with that oh-so-pure flavor. They run the Spirit through a 750-gallon copper pot still, which rounds out its texture and amps up its naturally soft, sweet notes, making it the ultimate base for classic cocktails such as the Moscow Mule and Vodka Martini. With 100% wheat in its DNA, this Vodka is smooth, crisp, and clean, with a touch of wheaty sweetness and a bold mouthfeel, thanks to its final refinement in Sherry.
