Reviving a family brand and giving new life to the East Bottoms.  Andy Rieger is a direct descendant of Jacob Rieger, originator of J. Rieger & Co. – the largest mail-order whiskey house in the United States prior to the onset of federal Prohibition in 1920. In 2014, Andy revived the J. Rieger distilling business, “relocating” the original West Bottoms distillery to the former Heim Brothers Bottling Plant.
