Dimensions 2oz. (H 70mm x W 75mm x D 17mm); 6oz. (H 100mm x W 100mm x D 25mm)
Budget Standard
Material Pewter
Emblem Thistle
  • Solid pewter
  • A unique and generous gift
  • Beautifully engraved Celtic motif
  • Exquisitely detailed

Decorated with Scotland's Flower. The legend of the thistle begins on a dark night when a Norse King and his army invaded Scotland and began a stealthy approach to where a group of Clansmen lay sleeping. So as to catch the Scots unawares, they slipped off their shoes and all would have gone well but for one of the party treading upon a thistle. His cries of pain awoke the slumbering Scots and they went on to seize the day.

Further Engraving: we can also arrange to have a personalised message of your choice engraved onto the flask at a charge of £0.30 per character, with a minimum charge of £5. We surcharge this after ordering; it is not shown on the checkout page, but will be on your receipt email after your order is charged. Please note that engraving adds 1-2 weeks to the delivery time.
