Liquid Death

Liquid Death is a completely unnecessary approach to bottled water.

Liquid Death comes from an underground mountain source protected by a few hundred feet of stone. 

Liquid Death was founded in 2017 by Mike Cessario and Jon-Ryan (J.R.) Riggins. The company is headquartered in Santa Monica, California.


Liquid Death is tapped right from the source into our bottler where it goes directly into air-tight cans after a fancy purification process that 100% maintains the original mineral profile of the water. And these natural minerals (aka electrolytes) aren’t just good for your body, they will murder your thirst.


Liquid Death is now carried in more than 29,000 locations throughout the U.S., including Whole Foods, Target, Safeway and 7-Eleven stores.


Liquid Death is backed by Science, Live Nation, PowerPlant Partners, Velvet Sea Ventures, Convivialité Ventures, Access Capital, Nomad Ventures, and others. The company raised $75M in Series C round on Jan 04, 2022. This brings Liquid Death's total funding to $109.2M to date. The latest round valued the company at $525M post-money.
