There is nothing at all new about the classic hip flask. However, to have a nice shiny stainless steel one such as this version from the renowned name of Zippo, better known for their legendary lighters, is a bit special.

Ideal for those cold nights out on the hill camping or just for whenever you would like to be able to take a ‘wee dram’ somewhere away with you, when it is really not practical to carry a glass bottle or such a beverage in a plastic container. I spent a lot of time in the past working out on the hills in winter and a colleague of mine always carried a flask like this with a 50/50 mix of Malt Whisky and Glayva. A perfect warmer on a cold day. Slàinte!, or slan-gey! if you come from south of the border.

Great as a gift, which can easily be engraved to personalise it. Zippo also produce a fancier leather-wrapped version of this flask. To buy online go to these pages on the UK Distributor’s (Whitby & Co) website for the Polished or Leather versions.
