A new California Bourbon made from heirloom blue corn for a nutty flavor profile.

California passed the "Craft Distillers Act of 2015." The law states that a distillery that produced less than 100,000 gallons of Spirits are allowed to host events and serve their Spirits on-site. Shortly thereafter. Rob Rubens became one of the first three to take advantage of the new law when he founded R6 Distillery and Speakeasy in El Segundo, California — just a few miles away from LAX Airport. He named his new operation after the six Rubens Brothers who founded the Rubens Rialto Theatre in Joliet, Illinois, back in 1926 during Prohibition. 

R6 Blue Corn Bourbon Whiskey follows on the heels of their regular Bourbon. The difference is that instead of the midwestern yellow dent corn used in the vast majority of the Bourbon made today, this Spirit is made from heirloom blue corn grown in the southwest. It’s one of the original varieties historically grown by indigenous peoples like the Hopi and Tarahumara tribes. Blue corn brings additional nutty notes and a richer sweetness.

Like its brethren, R6 Blue Corn Bourbon Whiskey is bottled at 43% ABV.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies
