About : Our Technology


Excess gas is propelled by these chimneys to add an attractive effect for your guests.


This model makes it possible to produce 8 frozen shots in 4 minutes!


This chamber is equipped with 8 buses in order to optimize the freezing time of the frozen shots.


This machine works without electricity! The gas can reach temperatures as low as -70°C, which allows us to freeze 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.

Democratize the fascinating experience of instant freezing in Gastronomy & Mixology.
Bring our technology to every kitchen counter in the world by becoming the microwave of cold. 
Attitude determines success. If entrepreneurship was simple, everyone would do it. Perseverance is the key.
Choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, quick or easy; and choosing to practice our values ​​with integrity rather than simply professing them.
Collaboration can drive innovation, increase productivity and improve team satisfaction in a growing workplace.
