Kathryn from the blog "The Kats Paws" has a go at reviewing a SWIG:
"You may think a hip flask is a strange thing for a girl to be blogging about, but I am a girly girl who loves going to watch her beloved football team Manchester United. Now unfortunately the football season doesn’t run through summer, it runs through winter and therefore it can get cold on those terraces. And I mean COLD. I have often taken a hip flask filled with some whisky during the winter months to warm up my tummy and it works a treat.
SWIG is a company who takes a hip flask and makes it cool. The hip flask itself is a silver chrome flask with an easy, but secure twist off cap and each one has a unique ID number engraved on to it, but I will discuss more about that later. So you have your hip flask, which is a quality piece without feeling overly heavy, so how do SWIG take it to the next level? They let you choose a little case for it – this could be different leathers, tartans and other materials.
I chose the Red Harris Tweed check design, because I love tartan and I know quite a bit about Harris Tweed. For those of you who don’t, this little tweet pouch was handmade on the Isle of Skye using exclusive Harris Tweed sourced direct from the weavers and mills on the Isle of Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Pretty cool to have something so unique huh?
The hip flask snuggles down nicely into its pouch, and is a great size for trouser pockets, blazer or coat pockets and of course handbags, and so I fill it with a little of David Beckham’s Haig Club whisky and I know I will enjoy my half-time treat! If you are wanting to purchase a SWIG hip flask for a boyfriend, friend, father, grandfather etc, it arrives in a lovely presentation box, laid inside on a beautiful Paisley-designed cushion.
The unique number that is engraved on to the hip flask is your SWIG Society number. What’s the SWIG Society? It is an added bonus when owning a flask that comes with perks such as an invitation to the SWIG annual party, monthly SWIG whisky refills, a SWIG Society pouch, and much more.
The SWIG Harris Tweed flask has an RRP of £69 but currently has £20 off, making it just £49 and you can check it outhere.
