J. Rieger & Co. – a distillery founded in 1887 – is growing. Founders Andy Rieger and Ryan Maybee revived the whiskey company five years ago after a near-century hiatus. Now, it will expand into the old Heim Brewery bottling facility, another piece of Kansas City history; the facility operated in the 1900s near the former Electric Park. 

Tour through J. Rieger & Co.’s new, and historical, space with co-founder Ryan Maybee. Experience 60,000 square feet of history and craftsmanship that went into every nook and cranny. The distillery will be open to the public on July 12.
