Can a hip flask for alcohol be made from hard plastic?

Can a hip flask for alcohol be made from hard plastic?

Sorry if this question is out of place on this forum but I don't really know where to ask. If I am out of place feel free to guide me to another site for information. I am actually a seller on Amazon and I am trying to get my first product manufactured and sold under my own brand. It will be a hip flask and I have reasons for why I would like it to be made of plastic rather than steel. Is this possible? If so what material would you recommend for good durability/cost ratio. I would like it to be able to have kind of a diamond pattern grip, colored black, and withstand a bit of a beating. Thank you so much in advance for any information.

PET is used for spirit bottles sold for taking on aircraft as it's lighter and tougher than glass.
Fizzy cola bottles are made from it. The process is blow moulding or injection blow moulding.


Politicians like to panic, they need activity. It is their substitute for achievement.
