The history of the Quaich dates back centuries and is commonly known as the Scottish "Cup Of Welcome", whereby visitors would be welcomed with whisky and drink from each side of the bowl. Today it is used as a commemorative gift for weddings, christenings and a whole host of celebrations, particularly for those with Scottish heritage.
The word ‘Quaich’ comes from the Gaelic word ‘cuach’, which means cup. The Quaich is a traditional Scottish ‘Cup Of Welcome’ that originated in the Highlands and is a special kind of shallow two-handled drinking cup or bowl often filled with whisky. Today it is used as a commemorative gift for weddings, christenings, prize givings and a whole host of celebrations, particularly for those with Scottish heritage.
