Bourbon blogger Tom Fischer reacting to word that the producers of Maker’s Mark are reversing a decision to cut the amount of alcohol in its bourbon.  The company’s CEO saying its restoring the alcohol volume of its product back to 45%, or 90 proof.

Last week, the company announced it would lower it to 42%, or 84 proof, because of a supply shortage.  Maker’s Mark is owned by spirits company Beam Inc., based in Deerfield, Illinois.  Its other brands include Jim Beam bourbon.
