KANSAS CITY, Mo.– How about those bosses! To celebrate the Kansas City Chiefs’ World Championship win this weekend, the original Kansas City Distillery and proud partner of the Chiefs, J. Rieger & Co. bottled a commemorative 2022 World Championship Premium Wheat Vodka. A special championship label featuring the Chiefs logo adorns each bottle, making this limited edition release a must-have for any Chiefs fan.
The 750 mL bottles are available through Kansas and Missouri retailers and J. Rieger & Co. Distillery, located at 2700 Guinotte Ave. in Kansas City’s historic Electric Park neighborhood.
Each bottle contains 750ml of Rieger’s acclaimed 100% grain vodka. Not only is this bottle a great piece of Chiefs memorabilia to put on the shelf, but it also looks fantastic in the glass, whether over ice, or mixed into your favorite vodka cocktail.
Rieger’s Premium Wheat Vodka is known for its clean, smooth flavor. The premium vodka is flowed through the distillery’s 750-gallon copper pot still, rounding out the spirit and giving it a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel.
“We were all watching the game Sunday in anticipation of the Chiefs victory,” said J. Rieger & Co. master distiller Nathan Perry. “We got ready to bottle this batch as soon as the clock struck 0:00. Our expert distilling and packaging teams rose to the challenge and we are proud to say this is now on shelves, less than three days after the final whistle, just in time for the victory parade. It was a great effort from the entire team and we are happy that this got into the hands of diehard Chiefs fans so quickly.
