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.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
