Stunning copper flasks and more

By Sara Tan

There are regular flasks, and then there’s the Vermonter from the legendary artisans at Jacob Bromwell, the oldest housewares manufacturer in North America. What’s the difference? A handful of rather impressive things: The sleek and shiny pure copper exterior. The hot-tinned interior. The genius machined screw-top closure that guarantees zero chance of leakage. The compact body that fits neatly in your pocket while holding up to nine fluid ounces (or six shots). The only thing missing is your bourbon. Or whiskey. Or whatever homemade hooch you feel like concealing inside this handsome copper flask. Besides that, it’s drinking vessel perfection—and we’d expect nothing less from a company that has been crafting kitchenwares, housewares, and other goods since 1819.
And since the arrival of a Vermonter flask might make your other home goods jealous, the generous folks at Jacob Bromwell are also offering 40 percent off of everything else in their web store, including all sorts of gorgeous, long-lasting pieces, from the all-aluminum Heritage Cookie Sheet and Signature Chestnut Roaster to the Collector’s Copper Cup and the 24-karat Gold Edition shot glasses. Now might be a good time to make some extra room in your kitchen cabinets and wet bar.

Tasty tidbits
  • Not only is the Vermonter Flask soldered and entirely handcrafted by American workers, it’s also backed by a 100 percent lifetime guarantee.
  • The Vermonter Flask is in fact made in—you guessed it—the Green Mountain State.
  • The Vermonter Flask will never rust—it’s resistant to corrosion. If left untreated, your flask will naturally oxidize and age into a beautiful patina. However, you can polish it to restore a shiny finish.
