Flasks have been around since ancient times in the form of animal skins or bladders used to carry liquids long distances.

The term "bootlegger" was coined when secret flasks began to be hidden in trouser legs or boots. As of 2014, flasks are used where alcohol is not allowed, in instances where the flask holder would rather bring her own alcohol than pay more for what is available for sale or in any situation where drinking should be concealed.
