As President Obama and Congress head on vacation, America can rest easy that at least one crisis has been averted: Iconic bourbon distiller Maker’s Mark will stay 90-proof.
In just one week’s time, the company received thousands of messages from outraged bourbon drinkers, angry at announced plans to water down the bourbon. On Sunday, the company backtracked.
Beginning Monday, every bottle from its Loretto, Ky., facility will be back to 90-proof, Mr. Samuels said, in the report.
The decision to water its bourbon was due to supply drains, according to company officials. But drinkers said they’d rather face occasional supply shortages than drink watered-down bourbon, according to the Courier-Journal.
