(Loretto, KY) The bourbon known for red wax-sealed bottles is getting watered down.

Maker’s Mark was 45% alcohol by volume, and the company says it is now down to 42%.

The company says the decision is part of an effort to meet rising global demand.

Even though the decision has been met with criticism, the company says its bourbon still tastes the same.
