hi

yes it dose. think of it like some Ribena the more water you add the the less it tastes.

If you want to know how much water to add to dilute your alcohol down, just multiply the amount of spirits you have by (strong/weak) - 1

eg: if you want to dilute 2L of 75% alcohol down to 40%, you will need to add 2 x ((75/40)-1) = 1.75L of water. this would give you 3.75L of 40%

That sounds about right: ABV stands for Alcohol By Volume (i.e. the percentage alcohol in the overall liquid volume).
