LOUISVILLE, Ky. (www.incnow.tv) – Maker’s Mark officials announce they will not change the recipe of their iconic bourbon.

Fears arose last week after it was made public that owners wanted to water down the product taking the drink’s alcohol content from 45% to 42%; a change that a lot of people argued would alter the taste and overall experience of the beverage.

Public outcry won out. Fans flooded the company’s Facebook with praise after the change of heart.
