"There cannot be good living where there is no good drinking." - Benjamin Franklin.

A HIP FLASK is a thin flask for holding a distilled beverage; its size and shape are suited to a trouser pocket.

Hip flasks were traditionally made of pewter, silver, or even glass, though most modern flasks are made from stainless steel. Some come with small cups to make sharing easier, although generally liquid is drunk directly from the flask. They are usually contoured to match the curve of the wearer's hip or thigh, for comfort and discretion. The hip flask is popular as commemorative item, often being engraved.

The hip flask began to appear in the form recognised today in the 18th century, initially used by members of the gentry. However, less compact versions had been in production for several centuries. Notably, in the Middle Ages, there are several accounts of gutted fruit being used to store liquor. During the 18th century, women boarding docked British warships would smuggle gin into the ship via makeshift flasks, created from pig's bladders and hidden inside their petticoats. Following the act of prohibition in 1920s America, the state of Indiana banned the sale of cocktail shakers and hip flasks.
