Stainless Steel Flasks
|Flasks are often made of silver or chromed metal, with a leather cover for decoration. Some come with small cups to make sharing easier, although generally liquid is drunk directly from the flask. Quality flasks have a glass lining, preventing metallic flavour leaching from the metal body into the drink. The hip flask is popular as commemorative item.|
The flask began to appear in the form recognised today in the 18th century, initially used by members of the gentry. However, less compact versions had been in production for several centuries. Notably, in the middle ages, there are several accounts of gutted fruit being used to store liquor. Following the act of prohibition in 1920s America, the state of Indiana banned the sale of cocktail shakers and flasks.
