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 backed by Velvet Sea Ventures, Ring founder Jamie Siminoff, TOMS founding members Jake Strom and Blake Mycoskie, GirlBoss founder/CEO Sophia Amoruso and Thrive Market CEO Nick Green also participated, as did existing investors Science Inc. The company raised $9M in a Series A round on Feb 20, 2020. This brings Liquid Death's total funding to $11.25M to date.
