KANSAS CITY (Oct 6) - Midwestern legend, F Scott Fitzgerald, drank gin because he was convinced people couldn't smell the alcohol on his breath. Maybe they'd figure he was addicted to Evergreen air fresheners. KC's J Rieger and Co has released their long-awaited Midwestern Dry Gin, made in collaboration with retired Tanqueray legend, Tom Nichol. Nichol agreed to the project partly because of location. "What is it with people in Kansas City?" the Scotsman asked the KC Star. "They're just so nice!"
