A gentleman will go portable with his drink via flask, not beer hat. And his drink of choice will probably fall into the category of whiskey or whisky. Cheap, logo’d flasks are a dime a dozen and will class you up about as much as eating your porterhouse with a spork. Turn to the Wentworth Pewter Flask from our friends at Kaufmann Mercantile, and you’ll never have to wonder where your next digestif is coming from or how good you’ll look taking it in. We got our hands on one recently and pretty much fell in love with it from the word ‘go’.

Available in 4 or 6 ounce sizes, the Wentworth flask is made in Sheffield, England and consists of 92% tin (low corrosivenness and minimal flavor transfer) and 8% pewter, which does a fine job of both retaining shine and looking fantastic. It feels great in the hand and has just enough irregularities in the metal to make it look like one-of-a-kind. On the back is stamped the Sheffield coat of arms, along with seal of authenticity from the Pewter Craftsmen trade guild, European Union authentication and, of course, Arthur Richard Wentworth’s initials. The slight curvature of the body and the rounded corners make it comfortable to hold and worthy of masculine admiration. We found the 4 ounce to be the perfect size for the man on the run. It holds just enough elixir to keep you happy but not so much that your happiness will spill onto others.
