Hip flasks are the best way to carry your liquor. They are stylish, fit nicely in your pocket and can be a real conversation point at parties, festivals and nights out on the town. A hip flask is especially useful when it comes to celebration events like weddings, stag parties and birthdays. But when it comes to purchasing, How old do you have to be to buy a hip flask?.
How old do you have to be to buy a hip flask?
The great thing about hip flasks is they can be purchased by anyone of any age. There is no age restriction on buying alcohol paraphernalia. At the end of the day if you break down what a hip flask is actually used for it is the storing of liquid, some liquids are not recommend to be stored in this style of flask but when you get to the crux of if, the item is a flask or liquid container. There are no age restrictions on buying such containers even if there primary use is for the storage of alcohol.
What are the age restrictions on buying alcohol?
We should point out even if you are able to buy the hip flask it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to purchase the alcohol to go into the container. With alcohol restrictions getting tighter here in the UK and schemes like ‘Challenge 25’ you’ll have to look 25 not to get asked for ID and then if you are asked you must prove you are over 18 using a form of photo ID like passport or driving licence. To clarify, 18 is the legal age for purchasing alcohol here in the UK, it is also against the law for someone to attempt to purchase alcohol for someone under this age. 21 is the legal age limit in the United States.
I’m not old enough to buy alcohol
As a responsible business we should point out that this is not a bad thing. You’ll get to being able to drink alcohol soon enough and speaking from experience you’ll probably enjoy it more when you don’t have to sit on a park bench at 11pm drinking cheap cider out of a bag that your big brother has helped your purchase.
