The Kells design is taken from the design on the front of the book of Kells - the intricate line art is the perfect ornamentation for this traditional Highland cup. Used by chiefs to both welcome and bid farewell to their guests, this quaich is beautiful example of a fine traditional cup.

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 exquisitely engraved quaich is a superb addition to any home.

Quaichs make very beautiful and unusual gifts and nothing makes a gift so why not add a satin lined presentation box?

Further Engraving: we can also arrange to have a personalised message of your choice engraved onto the quaich at a charge of £0.30 per character, 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. Please note that engraving adds 1-2 weeks to 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.
