In the words of Forbes: No clowning around with this ‘really good’ Whiskey.

In 2019, a certain American extreme metal band from Des Moines, Iowa, partnered with a certain award-winning Cedar Ridge Distillery, also from Iowa. And Slipknot No.9 Iowa Whiskey was born. Mainly from corn that’s grown at the Cellar Ridge Distillery farm in Winthrop, Iowa. Blended by percussionist Shawn Crahan, whom you probably know as “the Clown”, this is a really good blend of Straight Bourbon and Straight Rye Whiskeys. The ratio is 60% 3-4YO Bourbon and 40% 3-4YO Rye. The name comes from the number of band members. While some people might = sh*t, this blend certainly = gold all the way. We know a good celeb collab when we see one. Great for true Maggots and other Whiskey die-hard fans alike.

Cedar Ridge Distillery started as Cedar Ridge Winery by Jeff Quint in 2005 where they distilled some of the grape juice into Brandies. The Whiskey needed to age a few years before the first Bourbon release came out in 2010. And yes, the pundits took notice, naming them "2017 Distiller of the Year" and "Best American Craft Whiskey" in 2016. They meticulously oversee every step of production from grain to glass.

Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
