A traditional Highland 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 "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 thistle themed quaich is a superb addition to any home.

Quaichs make very beautiful and unusual gifts so why not add a satin lined presentation box?
