Are you looking for a taste of American resilience?

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.

This Bottle-in-Bond Bourbon is a quintessential American tale, much like the rise, fall, and triumphant comeback of J. Rieger & Co. Distilled from a blend of corn, rye, and malted barley, this Straight Bourbon represents the first fruits of their revival efforts. After six long years of patient maturation in 53-gallon white American Oak barrels, the first barrels that they produced in 2015 have blossomed into a Whiskey that's positively bursting with flavor. Expect dark cherry an plum flavors taking center stage, with notes of cigar smoke, cornbread, and even a touch of cotton candy playing out in the background.
