JOURNEY BEHIND THE SCENES AT ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST STORIED DISTILLERIES.

Join us for an hour-long guided tour of J. Rieger & Co., Kansas City’s iconic distillery, located in the historic Electric Park neighborhood of the East Bottoms district. Discover the history of our brand, from its founding during the wild and raucous years when the city boasted “the wettest block in the world”, to its premature demise at the dawn of Prohibition, and eventual revival in 2014, nearly a century later.

Enjoy extensive access to each phase of the distillation process, from grain to bottle.

Your tour concludes with a spirits tasting of Premium Wheat Vodka, Midwestern Dry Gin, Kansas City Whiskey and Caffè Amaro, led by one of our knowledgeable guides.
