J. Rieger & Co.
A brand refresh and packaging design for J. Reiger & Company.
The J. Rieger & Co. brand was founded in Kansas City in 1877. The company specialized in a signature blended whiskey known as “Monogram”. They had a production facility, bottling line, distribution center, and storefront all located in KC. In 1919, because of Prohibition, the company shut their doors. 96 years later, the pre-prohibition era spirits company was resurrected. The goal of the resurrection was to pay tribute to the history, legacy, and integrity of the brand.
