In 2015, our chef René Bollier, André’s grandson, had the opportunity to collaborate with another multi-generational family-owned Kansas City business, the distillery J. Rieger & Co. at a Whiskey & Chocolate event, part of Operation Indulgence, at the WWI museum.
René’s goal was to create a chocolate candy to pair with Rieger’s new Kansas City Whiskey, something that would both mark the occasion and highlight the compatibility of whiskey and chocolate. The result, our J. Rieger & Co. Chocolate Shots, were such a resounding success that we’ve featured them in our shops ever since.
Inspired by customers’ enjoyment of the Whiskey Chocolate Shots, in 2020 René adapted André's Signature Caramel Bar, blending Rieger Whiskey with the caramel and encasing it in André's Signature 60% Dark Chocolate Bar to create a new Kansas City Whiskey Caramel Bar.
Encouraged by the success of the Whiskey Caramel Bar, André's released jars of KC Whiskey Caramel Sauce.
We hope you enjoy our Chocolate Shots, Kansas City Whiskey Caramel Bar + KC Whiskey Caramel Sauce made using the premium spirits by J. Rieger, a fellow Kansas City institution.
