In August 2019, Slipknot collaborated with the award winning Iowa-based Cedar Ridge Distillery, which was awarded Distillery of The Year in 2017 (American Distilling Institute), to bring the world original whiskeys rich in Iowa roots, No. 9 Iowa Whiskey and No. 9 Iowa Whiskey RESERVE. Made with homegrown Iowa corn featuring a sweet and spicy flavor and finished with a bold flavor at a higher 99% proof, Slipknot No. 9 Iowa Whiskey Reserve furthers the quality of the No. 9 – maturing an extra year to allow more of the flavor to rock through. The popularity of the Reserve resulted in sell outs across the country since December.
