About the Company:
Liquid Death is 100% natural mountain water from the Austrian Alps, served in ice-cold sustainable cans designed to murder your thirst.
Founded in January of 2019 and based in Los Angeles, California, Liquid Death is one of the nation’s fastest growing water brands taking a completely unnecessary approach to canned water. Unnecessary things tend to be far more interesting, fun, hilarious, captivating, memorable, exciting, and cult-worthy. Taking the world’s healthiest beverage and making it just as unnecessarily entertaining as the unhealthy brands has put Liquid Death on the map for BevNet’s Best Marketing in 2019, one of dot.LA’s hottestps in 2020, and Medium’s cult-worthy brands among a few accolades.
As Liquid Death continues to bring unnecessarily awesome canned water options to more people, Liquid Death is equally as excited to promote and help fund alternative art, music, and entertainment alongside the brand.
