        its getting downright nasty, isnt it Mr B?
        its bad enuf when they dilute our money - never mind lie about it - or start calling 14oz a 'pint' - but when they start waterin down the booze, now they really pushin their luck

        this ones getting around - as in: good news travels fast, but bad news travels at the speed of light:

        In an interview with TIME, Maker’s Mark president Bill Samuels Jr. — whose father created the bourbon’s unique recipe in 1954 using red-winter wheat instead of rye — insisted that drinkers won’t notice the difference. The idea originated with Samuels’ son, Maker’s Mark chief operating officer Rob Samuels. (The company is still family run, although it’s owned by Beam, Inc., which also owns Jim Beam bourbon and Courvoisier cognac.) When Rob suggested the change last year, Bill Jr. said, he was slow to agree. “Rob asked me about six months ago, ‘What would you think about a proof reduction?’”
        what makes me think he's the beancounter of the clan....

          Is there still any doubt about the inflation/deflation argument? Heck, they're even starting to water down liquor. That's all the proof we need.

            It actually wouldn't surprise me to see a large return of the concept of bathtub gin ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathtub_gin ) over the next few years.
