“I love the story behind The Flask,” says Oakley engineer Neil Ferrier, who initiated the project. “It was born in a very fitting environment. “When Ken (Grier, Director of Malts for The Macallan’s parent company) visited Oakley’s design bunker, he brought us some great Macallan. After a few drams, he asked (Oakley CEO) Colin Baden about making a convention-defying hip flask—and The Flask was born.
“The challenges along the way were a ton of fun and the result is a highly engineered piece of hardware dedicated to purpose beyond reason.”
