Gin Sanitizer & Cocktails to Go!

J. Rieger & Co. has joined the Coronavirus fight. The distillery team has repurposed their overproof gin to keep distillery surfaces clean – and to make an all-natural disinfectant available to their community. At 70% ABV, Rieger’s overproof gin makes an excellent disinfectant (bonus: it also smells great!) Now they are stepping up to help combat the hand sanitizer shortage by producing their own alcohol-based solution. They will be packaging the hand sanitizer in small bottles, available for pick-up only from the distillery. To continue to provide responsible solutions and a steady income for their team, the hand sanitizer will be available on a pay-what-you-can scale.

For Rieger fans who also want a break from home cooking, the hospitality team has also developed “Take Home Cocktails Kits.” Customers can choose from one of TEN offerings from the popular Monogram Lounge cocktail menu, ice included, for pickup. You can also add a sandwich and kettle chips, or any of their non-perishable food items to your order.

As a small, family-owned distillery, J. Rieger & Co. is committed to supporting their 95+ team members and is making every effort to mitigate any financial impact, while also providing the best for their greater Kansas City community. J. Rieger & Co.’s on-site bars and events are currently closed to the public. The new cocktails-to-go and Rieger sanitizer offer a tremendous, direct benefit to the hospitality team.
