The Flask in action


Fast cars, gadgets and The Macallan? There’s more than a little 007 flavour to The Macallan’s collaboration with Oakley, even if the actors in their video lack a certain British sartorial elegance. The fact that the camera crane crew worked on Skyfall comes as no surprise, but we’re still not entirely sure which aspect of the flask the lady in the bath was testing to the limit… There always has to be a Bond girl though, right?!

The Macallan The Flask

Space-age: I never realised Oakley was a subsidiary of Drax Industries…


The flask itself is made of aerospace-grade aluminium and laser welded steel (honestly!). There are also only 550 of these £600 flasks in existence. Other features included a double sprung mouthpiece, a non-slip rubber base and a separate machined funnel that screws securely into place. It has air vents, for goodness sake! As Oakley say, it’s a “highly engineered piece of hardware dedicated to purpose beyond reason” – suffice to say Q branch would be proud to call it their own.

Helicopters are so 1950s! This is what Bond uses for The Refuel.


On the off chance that this all seems a bit silly to you and/or we can’t tempt you with The Flask or some delicious single malt whisky from The Macallan, then perhaps you would prefer The Handmade Cocktail Company’s brand new 70cl Vesper 2013 instead. Classic 1953 Bond.

For the rest of you gadget-loving Speyside whisky fans: Q branch is Oakley and M stands for The Macallan! Complete the mission and make sure you’re in with a chance of winning even if you (we) are a bit “like boys with toys”…

    Worst and most pointless invention I have ever seen. I would take one just to chuck it in a bin and save some idiot with too much money buying one.

    Bonkers! Absolutely Bonkers!

    If I had a spare 600 quid I know what I’d rather spend it on: Whisky!

    Still, I suppose someone will buy them…

  3. Brilliant design and have my fingers crossed!

    The Spanish targets came late, in the last 20 minutes, from Mario Gaspar of Villarreal after which a second from Arsenal's Santi Cazorla, and so they all the time felt like they would come.
