Oakley and The Macallan team up to create the portable purveyor of pleasure for whisky aficionados “The Flask”

Andrea Divirgilio / February 28, 2013

Known for their unique collaborations, the acclaimed luxury whisky brand The Macallan which recently collaborated with Sir Peter Blake who’s known for his design of the sleeve for the Beatles’ Grammy award-winning album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, to come up with a limited edition whisky box, has now partnered with sport and lifestyle brand Oakley, Inc. to bring you ‘The Flask’. Defying convention, The Flask which has been described as the purveyor of pleasure for whisky aficionados across the globe, boasts an edgy and adventurous feel, and has been especially designed to bring to life the whisky brand’s credentials in innovation whilst staying true to our inherent commitment to precision and craftsmanship. The Flask that protects your most expensive whisky in any situation, impressively features a laser welded food-grade steel inner center wrapped in carbon fiber composite, before being housed in black anodized 5-axis machined aerospace grade Aluminium exterior.

Durable in style as well as design, The Flask hasn’t been made to be hidden in a coat pocket. Rather, 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. Further, its machined aluminum funnel, designed to securely thread into the mouthpiece, reduces the chance of spillage.

For creating this beautiful, yet high octane Flask which is a highly engineered piece of hardware dedicated to purpose beyond reason, The Macallan has taken a truly design driven approach, and had a huge amount of fun while working together with Oakley.

Priced at $910 and limited to only 500 examples, The Flask is available from today at the brand’s site.
