Slipknot must have known that a shot or bottle of Whiskey would go hand in hand with critiquing their new masks and eventually reviewing their new album, We Are Not Your Kind. With that being said, the band has announced No. 9 Iowa Whiskey and it will be available on August 10th at select retailers throughout the U.S and will be available on their upcoming Knotfest Roadshow North American tour with Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth.

Additionally, the Slipknot signature whiskey can be obtained at select markets during their upcoming trek ahead of the official August 10th launch date. The group teamed up with Cedar Ridge Distillery from Winthrop, Iowa as No. 9 Iowa Whiskey (90 proof) will retail for $39.99 and No. 9 Reserve Iowa Whiskey (99 proof) will retail for $69.99.

Shawn “Clown” Crahan commented on the Whiskey:

“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.”

Jeff Quint, owner and founder of Cedar Ridge Distillery added:

“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.”
