Clan Crest Quaich

Wear your heritage with our quaichs like this fine quality Clan Crest Quaich. Authentically designed and made in Scotland, to the highest historical standards
Material Pewter
Emblem Clan crest
  • 129 Clan Crests available
  • Over 1200 Family Surnames
  • Non-scratch non-tarnish finish
  • Approved by Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs
  • Comes with a plinth

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 "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.

In Scotland's turbulent past it was the custom for Clan Chiefs to give their followers a metal plate of their crest, to be worn as a badge of allegiance which fastened to their clothing with a strap and buckle. When not in use the belt was coiled around the crest and this convention is used in the clan crest badges of today. Only a Clan Chief may wear the crest without the strap and buckle.

These superbly detailed clan crest designs are approved by the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs, as authentic representations taken from the arms of the Chief of the Clans. Every Clan Chief or family head has a Coat of Arms granted by the Lord Lyon King of Arms, which is listed in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland. The Register, established in 1592 and kept in the Court of the Lord Lyon in Edinburgh, is acknowledged as being the most magnificent heraldic manuscript in Scotland.

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.
