A new, craft Bourbon born on the West Coast.

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 Bourbon Whiskey is Los Angeles' first Bourbon! It's a classic American Bourbon that’s made from midwestern yellow dent corn. Rye take second place, followed by a bit of malted barley to round out the classic mash bill. The Spirit is bottled at a very nice 43% ABV and has already started pulling down awards, including Silver medals at both the LA and Denver International Spirits Competitions. It’s a dram of California sunshine in a shot glass.

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
"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."
