Built on Tradition

R6 is a family and veteran owned distillery in El Segundo, California, just south of Los Angeles International Airport.
We distill and create recipes for dozens of spirits and non-alcoholic beverages at our facility, and in 2017 opened our facility to service other brands.

Founder & Head Distiller

Rob Rubens

Rob fell in love with the art of distilling after his first (unplanned) trip to New Orleans Rum Distillery. He knew it was time for a change. After spending the better part of a decade in corporate America and realizing that was not his path, Rob visited distilleries and breweries and decided it was time to make waves. Coupling his experience with his desire to bring quality spirits to Los Angeles, Rob opened this speakeasy inspired distillery for everyone to enjoy. In his spare time, Rob likes to hike, sky dive, tour live music, attempt the piano, and try to save his sanity by traveling the world.

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.

Quality Control & Security


With a similar passion for quality drinks, but mainly protecting the sanity of those bringing you the R6 spirits, Jax is our Top Dog. You can find him doing QC walks around the distillery, keeping an eye on the tasting room, or catching some zzz’s in the office.

Jax has a busy schedule, but when he manages to catch a break, he enjoys the dog park, sniffing other dogs…well, you know…and harassing cats.

Favorite R6 Cocktail:  Water from the cat’s bowl
