Hip flask happiness is a wonderful thing and can, on occasion, also be described as hip flask smugness. The happiness that I speak of is that feeling of warmth that overcomes you when you take your hip flask out of your pocket, or bag – you take a swig and bam!, just what you need deliciousness. Perfect for those situations when you need a little warming or a little something to soothe your nerves.
Why buy a budget flask?
Hip flasks come in all shapes and sizes as well as many different quality types, the budget steel flask is a lighter weight and cheaper alternative to it’s higher quality heavier counterpart, but why do these cheaper flasks have a place in the hip flask market?
Simply put sometimes people either don’t want to spend the money or they are looking at a bulk order for an event or occasion. A full priced flask is just out of the question for such events as the shear quantity would push the price to unattainable levels. With the budget flask you can have a large order but with a much more reasonable cost. Now you have to remember that with a lower price comes a lower quality (come on you didn’t think you’d get the same high quality for such a low price, did you?), in the case of the budget flask this is evident in the weight as the budget flask is around one third lighter, also the box is a standard stock box which cuts down on the cost.
Budget flasks are still perfectly functional which means you can still load them with your favorite liquor and have a jolly good time, pip pip.
Thankfully with our extensive range of budget flasks we can cater for most peoples needs, with an in house engraving service including logo engraving you’ll have an affordable flask that can be personalised.
So to answer the question why buy a budget flask, they don’t break the bank, they can be ordered in bulk and so you can get everyone on your guest list a engraved flask for a very reasonable price. If on the other hand you are looking to really wow your recipient then please take a look at our pewter flask range or our standard steel flasks.

Birthday’s, weddings and thank you’s are a great excuse to buy someone you like a liquor flask.
Lots of us have hip flasks but, how many of know how to look after them. I know certainly from experience in my younger years, that they are not well cared for. Thrown in a drawer with little regard until next time.
Fast growing in popularity, Absinthe is most certainly and acquired taste for many. Some love it (The Pocket Hip Flask Co included), and other despise it. After being banned in so many countries, Absinthe peaked curiosity in many when the ban was lifted. Banned because it became associated with violence and anti-social behaviour many countries were reluctant to allow production again.
It has been said that he actual reason the prohibition started was not due to the effect of the Absinthe, those same effects that we get from most alcohol (minis the marginal hallucinogenic), but due to the fact that it was so popular that other drinks were no longer being bought. Drinks that the governments had shares in..

Absinthe – An Acquired Taste
Absinthe is a deliciously tasty spirit which is most certainly an acquired taste. Like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it. Personally I love it! It has such a unique flavour that it truly is delicious. It probably helps that it is made from some of my favourite herbs. As many of you may know, Absinthe is a very strong alcoholic drink, usually around 40-75% proof. Not one of the most popular drinking here in the UK, although the love is growing, Absinthe is incredibly popular around Europe. Yummy!
