Honkaku Spirits are a step away from the norm. In a society that is now trying to do the most and stand out in every way for the ‘gram, time for a bar cart upgrade. We love our oldie but goodie brands but Honkaku whiskey should be the newest mate for your ginger ale. In the mood for an old fashioned? Try the JKGF twist below. Salud!
