This machine works without electricity! The gas can reach temperatures as low as -100°C, enabling the freezing of alcohol

During my engineering studies, I owned a bar on St-Laurent Street in Montreal. On January 24, 2013, we were open and it was -30 degrees outside. The bar was empty. Disappointed, I decide to close early. I lock the doors and start walking through the deserted streets, thinking, "It's not true that Montreal is the coldest place in the world." On my way home, my curiosity leads me to watch a video on YouTube taking place in Siberia where it is -64 degrees in the middle of winter. Two Russians share a meal around a fire. As an accompaniment, they take out a bottle of vodka hidden in the snow. The alcohol was frozen. So they decide to break the bottle and eat the vodka right out of the bottle. That's when I said to myself, if I could offer popsicles of alcohol in my bar, maybe on a January 24th at -30 degrees, my clientele would show up because I offer a unique experience. Four years later, the first Ufrost machine was born.
