Maker's Mark to reduce alcohol content

If you like to enjoy your Maker's Mark with a little water, then there's good news. You won't need to add your own water anymore because the distillery will do it for you. The Kentucky distillery behind Maker's Mark is taking some of the alcohol out of their product, going from 90 proof to 84 proof. "Fact is, demand for our bourbon is exceeding our ability to make it," wrote Maker's Mark executives Rob Samuels and Bill Samuels Jr. in an email to clients.

It's really a pretty ingenious way to deal with supply and demand. If you water down your bourbon, you can make more bottles to sell, and when you've lowered the alcohol content of your bourbon, nobody will buy it anymore. Problem solved!

Of course they would. That would have been by far and away the easier way to do it.

And they don't want to do that because they don't want to run off some of their loyal drinkers. They've taken a far bolder approach and are hoping to make it a temporary change only. They're trying to do the right thing here by remaining accessible to their fans.

Basically they're showing uncommon honesty in being completely transparent about their product.

And they're getting shit on for it.

Might as well lie, change the formula AND jack up the price a few bucks a bottle...because hardly anyone would notice.

I'm pretty sure they have to disclose their proof, so the change would be obvious. Not disclosing it ahead of time would've been a colossal **** up.

Meh. I drink Maker's regularly because my buddies love the stuff. I keep Buffalo Trace or Builett in my house, so I don't care too much.

It's pretty good for it's price point. Roughly $25 for a 750. Give it a go, I doubt you'll be unsatisfied.

I need to give Buffalo Trace a try as well... I normally just stick with Makers and Bulleit (rye).

This coincides perfectly with me scaling back on the Maker's Mark to almost none. While I've loved it over the years, last year I had...let's say...a couple 'incidents' involving Maker's Mark and I don't want to push the envelope any further than I already have. I don't know if it was the fact that I lost 25 lbs, or that I don't drink nearly as often as I used to (I drink Maker's about once every couple months now), but I fear if I keep drinking the amount of Maker's that I used to be able to drink when I went out, that someday I'm not going to come home.

So, it's been a good run Maker's Mark, but from now on I'll just have a few beers and some ganja and count my blessings that I never killed myself or anybody else.

Is this a problem with Makers or is it a personal one?

Personal. The only problem with Maker's Mark is that it tastes too damn good.

Am I the only one who finds it ironic that a Pats fan is bitching about a company "shitting" on its base, the same poster who was genuinely interested in showing at least a semblance of loyalty to *****?

Tell me you contributed to the SOC movement.
