Our Monogram Whiskey carries on a tradition of blending exceptional whiskeys dating back to when Jacob Rieger started our distillery in 1887. This very special and limited-edition Kansas City Whiskey sees an extended aging period in extremely rare oloroso sherry botas from the Williams & Humbert Solera Especial. The additional time spent in the solera adds depth, complexity, and beauty that you are unlikely to find in any other American whiskey.
2023 MONOGRAM WHISKEY
This year’s blend is comprised of straight bourbon, straight rye, and light corn whiskeys that have been aging in our solera since as far back as 2015. The 2023 Rieger’s Monogram Whiskey is the first release of our "Kansas City Whiskey - Solera Reserve," which celebrates the deep, complex terroir of the legendary sherry botas and its effect on American whiskey. The solera method uses fractional blending to age the whiskey. It’s a continual process of removing a portion of the whiskey from the barrel, then topping it off with another batch, over many years. This “never-ending barrel” approach creates a unique yet consistent mixture of ages. Having expanded our solera to ten casks between 50-100 years old adds layers of flavor and complexity to what is already a very special bottling.
