(Memphis) A change of heart for Maker’s Mark.

Their decision to lower the alcohol by volume to keep up with demand didn’t get such a nice response, so they’ve reversed the decision.

Following a number of nasty emails, phone calls and complaints, their CEO announced today they will not lower the alcohol content in the original 90 proof Maker’s Mark whiskey.
