Rab-Bots Rising: Japanese Whisky's Edge

In today's Tipsy Timeline we talk about a place that has recently become popular for their whisky. No, not Scotland. Nope, not Ireland either. United States? Wrong again! Today we are talking about Japan! But specifically we are talking about the barrel that put them on the map. The barrel (and economic policies) that took them from desolation post-WWII to global whisky powerhouse. All this and more in this episode of the Tipsy Timeline!
