Slipknot have announced they’re about to release their very own branded American whiskies.
The band have joined forces with Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery for the products – and they report it’ll be available from August.
Slipknot say: “Announcing No. 9 Iowa Whiskey, available August 10 at select retailers in all 50 states and across all Knotfest Roadshow North American dates (opens in new tab).
“A collaboration with the Iowa-based Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery, No. 9 Iowa Whiskey (90 proof / 45% ABV) and No. 9 Reserve Iowa Whiskey (99 proof / 49.5% ABV) are made with corn from the award-winning distillery’s family farm in Winthrop, Iowa.”
Both bottles carry no age statement and have a mashbill consisting of 56% corn, 36% rye and 9% malted barley.
The No. 9 Iowa Whiskey will retail for $39.99, while the higher strength No. 9 Reserve Iowa Whiskey will sell for $69.99.
Slipknot’s Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan adds: “Slipknot and Cedar Ridge Distillery – two groups of people born and raised in Iowa, and committed to quality and hard work.
“We collaborated on No. 9 Whiskey, which in addition to Iowa corn, gets some extra spice from its rye content. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Live life, and always be safe.”
