Our new Torch Flask is the most exciting addition to our line up of backcountry barware - our Firelight 750 and 375 flasks are great for sharing drinks with friends and longer overnight trips, but this little flask packs a punch with just enough for a quick hike or casual adventure. Plus, its small size makes it easy to carry without compromising any features. While 6 ounces may not seem like much, with a well mixed recipe it's the perfect amount of cocktail (or "Pocktail") to carry in your pocket.
Earlier this year High Camp Flasks got the incredible opportunity to design a VIP cocktail menu and attend CalTrout’s annual gala alongside Redwood Empire Distillery. The event, which attracted sportsmen, outfitters, and philanthropists across California, highlighted CalTrout’s mission to preserve and restore freshwater ecosystems.
September is National Bourbon Heritage Month, and it’s always interesting to brush up on the history of this American classic. The first thing you need to know is that for whiskey to be considered bourbon, it has to meet certain qualifications.
The main requirements are that it must be made from a grain mixture that contains at least 51% corn, be distilled to no more than 160 proof, be aged in charred, new American oak barrels, and be made in the USA.
We love ginger - it adds complexity to any drink: warming and a little sweet with a good bite. Lucky for us, our friends atChimes Gourmet sent us some of their delicious ginger chews to try out in a variety of tasty flavors. We particularly enjoyed the Cayenne Lemon, described as: Cayenne Lemon goes to 11! Other ginger chews can't get over over the cliff, but cayenne is your jam! When you need a kick, that little extra spice from Cayenne in our ginger chew candy is the answer."
“A challenging course with a mellow feel,” was how my wife described Dunegrass. This was an especially poignant observation, as my wife had never played a day of golf in her life. She has recently become more likely to be my travel partner, photographer, destination selector, chef, and mixologist on these trips than a hardcore competitor. However, while I misread greens, confused doglegs, and got us lost in our pursuit of the tenth tee, she was googling reviews and chatting up locals and members. She is developing a love of the game and its culture, and that is so very good for me. At one delightful point during my round my sweet wife delightfully input my score of six remarking, “not bad honey, your last one was an eight!”
Old Orchard Beach, Maine is often associated with carnival vibes. However, its incongruent restrictions on open containers on its beaches make it an ideal location for field testing Highcamp Flask’s Firelight 750. From most angles within ten or so blocks of the pier, passersby can see the spinning Ferris Wheel and the whirling, twisting lights of another such ride that draws crowds of sticky-fingered children herded by red Solo cup adults. This is not my scene, but I begrudge those who seek it out not at all. Give me the quiet cove of sand behind the family sun tents and castle-crushing waves where I recline unnoticed while taking it all in.

Bitters have been called the ‘salt and pepper’ of the cocktail world, offering added punch and balance to elevate the experience of the beverage. Their acid phosphate is used as acidifying agent in cocktails were lemon or lime is not desired, due to expense, cloudiness, or flavor profile.
