J Rieger Distillery in Kansas City

I toured the J Rieger distillery in the East Bottoms in Kansas City last night. On the tour I found out for $10,000 you can use their facility to make your own barrel of whiskey. Of course I was the only guy on the tour grilling the tour guide about exactly how many 750 ml bottles this would produce and inquiring about the process. He said a barrel would produce about 640 bottles. So if we got enough people together to pitch in…..hmm…. When I win the lottery I’m definitely doing this! #joeslife

We got to sample four types of liquor after the tour.  Vodka, gin, whiskey and a coffee flavored dessert whiskey that they make.  I liked the gin the best and I don’t really like gin.  Check it out if you ever get a chance!
