The Macallan, The Flask: A $900 Way To Drink Scotch

It seems as of lately, carbon fiber is really making a name for itself in the drinking world. Just recently we have featured a carbon fiber wine wand, a carbon fiber champagne cooler, and now we have a carbon fiber flask, designed by Oakley.

The Macallan, the Flask, with carbon fiber

“Durable in style and design, The Flask wasn’t made to be hidden in a coat pocket. A rubberized bottom for non-skid grip and a small rectangular air vent on the side of the funnel to allow for ventilation prove that this vessel is made to be used, shared and enjoyed. The Flask’s cap is double sprung to allow for effortless drinking, so it maintains an appropriate distance from the mouthpiece when in use for optimum enjoyment and allows for smooth open and close action. Its machined aluminum funnel, designed to securely thread into the mouthpiece, reduces the chance of spillage.”

The Macallan Flask is made from carbon fiber, food-grade steel, and aerospace-grade aluminum. So I guess its OK to assume your whisky is safe in this flask! And if you have any doubts whatsoever, just check out the video below, featuring a commercial or promo, not sure which one, of the flask behind dragged around by luxury sports cars and a helicopter. This stealth black, carbon fiber flask will cost you about $900 ($900 on the UK, but $1,500 in the US, which includes a bottle of 22 year-old scotch). But rumor has it, it was only made in a limited edition of 100. Act fast!
