Oakley has teamed up with Scotch maker The Macallan to create the flask you see above.
Made with food-grade steel, carbon fiber and aerospace-grade aluminum, The Flask is more than a vessel; it’s a statement. By blending Oakley’s military and industrial design overtones with the subtle flavors and aromas of The Macallan’s world-class single malt whisky, The Flask is showpiece with complete utility.
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.
That’s some serious flask, with a serious price tag. In the UK and the rest of the world, the limited edition 100 units will sell for $900. But if you have the fortune/misfortune of living in the USA, you’re going to have to shell out $1,500 for this. Granted, that sum also buys you a whole set that includes a bottle of oak-aged, 22 year-old The Macallan scotch.
And if you had any doubts about the testosterone infused marketing angle the companies are going for, just hit the jump to watch a hot-rod and supercar filled commercial where The Flask is torture tested in what looks like an abandoned airstrip.
