Rob Rubens fell in love with the mystery and art of distillation after his first (and unplanned) trip to Old New Orleans Rum Distillery. After spending the better part of a decade in corporate America, he knew it was time for a change. Coupling his experience with the desire to bring quality spirits to Los Angeles, Rob decided to open this speakeasy-inspired distillery for everyone to enjoy. Prior to founding R6, Rob ambitiously completed his undergraduate studies in 2.3 years, achieving designation as Summa Cum Laude and his Graduate Degree with distinction. Rob also holds multiple financial certifications and designations.
Rob Rubens has always been amazed by what his family accomplished as entrepreneurs. The many stories Rob heard growing up, about the theatre during the Roaring 20’s and prohibition days, inspired Rob to leave the corporate world and continue the Rubens family tradition of taking a vision and making it reality.
