KSHB: J. Rieger & Co. making thousands of gallons of hand sanitizer

March 31, 2020


J. Rieger & Co. is Kansas City's first distillery in nearly a century and is keeping a family legacy alive. They normally are all about booze - but during this pandemic, instead of bottling whiskey, the Kansas City distillery is helping with the demand COVID-19 has put on the community and is bottling hand sanitizer.

Not only are they helping the public, but they are providing local hospitals as well. Saint Luke's Health System is buying 2,000 four-ounce bottles a week from the distillery.
