Robert Haynes is the co-founder and creator of the Gold Fashioned, the world’s first luxury ready-to-drink cocktail. Over the years, Robert has consulted for renowned bar programs locally, nationally, and internationally.
Robert started out in the hospitality industry in 2007 as part of the opening team of the iconic Chicago cocktail bar, The Violet Hour. In 2012, Robert teamed up with Letherbee Distillers to develop and launch BËSK, a Swedish-style wormwood liqueur that was not only an industry favorite, but sought out by consumers internationally. The following year, Robert opened the critically-acclaimed Analogue in Logan Square as Partner and Beverage Director.
In 2017, Robert launched Apologue, a line of all natural, award-winning liqueurs featuring unique, palate-provoking ingredients. Robert has continually stayed at the cutting edge of cocktail culture, and with Sunday’s Finest Gold Fashioned he’s pushed the envelope yet again - bringing a new level of hospitality into the comforts of home.
