A traditional Highland cup, used by chiefs to both welcome and bid farewell to their guests, this quaich is both beautiful and traditional. The word quaich comes from the Gaelic "cuach" for cup and is traditionally used to serve whisky or brandy. Sir Walter Scott was famous for dispensing wee drams to his guests in silver inlaid quaichs.

Whether you plan to welcome guests to your home with a bit of warming whisky, or even if you just appreciate the fine traditionalism, this beautiful Celtic banded quaich is a superb addition to any home.

Quaichs make very beautiful and unusual gifts and nothing makes a gift more special than an engraving. We can arrange engraving at a charge of �0.30 per letter, 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. By default, the engraved text will be around the outside of the bowl but if you would prefer your message on the base or inside the bowl, we will be happy to arrange this. Engraving adds 1-2 weeks onto the delivery time.

Tradition of the Quaich

quiach /kwex/ pronounced: kw-ay-ch
derived from Gaelic cuach 'cup'

It is hard to guess from its appearance exactly what a quaich is. Indeed, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was a small decorative bowl with little other purpose, beyond being aesthetically pleasing. In fact, the quaich has a much more interesting beginning than that of a posh ornament.
