The story of the history of flasks is an interesting one to say the least. The concept of flasks date back at least to the Middle Ages. However, they did not truly gain popularity until the 17th century, when pockets became a more popular addition to clothing. Back then, there were many shapes and sizes, as they were made with whatever people could use. This was typically a large fruit which was hollowed out and filled with alcohol. The designs for the flasks of today were generally finalized around the 18th century. This classic device, useful for storing your drink on the go, has been the go-to for people since then. Their popularity in the United States exploded during the prohibition era, as a quick way to sneak a drink and then hide it away from prying eyes. While the design of the flask has been fairly uniform, the materials used have undergone some updates and upgrades to get where we are at now. Generally made out of stainless steel, flasks are sturdy and useful to hold your drink of choice.
