English Pewter Company - Hip Flask - Celtic - 6 oz / 180 ml
Interesting to know:
The name ‘Hip Flask’ originates from the fact that it may be placed in a hip pocket of trousers or inside a coat or blazer. The latter is the best because it will not warm the alcohol, while the hip pocket will. Carrying it in the trouser pocket makes it more prone to breaking, bending, or appearing obvious.
Due to the high tensions and serious penalties surrounding alcohol usage during the prohibition in the United States, many people used hip flasks to hide their drinks from officials. People who carried hip flasks were referred to as “hipsters”. A lot of men and women would conceal their flasks within their boots, which is where the phrase “bootlegger” comes from too.
