The gems set into the base of this quaich make it a truly special example of Scotland's traditional toasting cup. Used by chiefs to both welcome and bid farewell to their guests, this quaich is beautiful, traditional and proudly Scottish. The word quaich comes from the Gaelic 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 gemset quaich is a superb addition to any home.

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.Tradition of the Quaich
