Slipknot‘s very own whiskey is now available for pre-order at Craftshack.com. A collaboration with the Iowa-based Cedar Ridge Distillery, No. 9 Iowa Whiskey (90 proof) and No. 9 Reserve Iowa Whiskey (99 proof) are made with corn from the award-winning distillery’s family farm in Winthrop, Iowa.
Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan expanded on the partnership stating, “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.”
Owner and founder of Cedar Ridge Distillery, Jeff Quint, noted: “As we came to know the Slipknot guys, we realized we share a lot of the core elements of a good Iowa foundation — these guys are very down to earth, hard-working and care deeply about their followers. Building this whiskey with them was an easy, natural process that resulted in a strong and spicy expression, just the way they wanted it.”
Slipknot will release their sixth studio album, “We Are Not Your Kind,” on August 9 via Roadrunner Records. Album was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed Slipknot‘s 2004 album “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)” and helmed 2014’s “.5: The Gray Chapter.”
