The Highland Quaich
The word Quaich is derived from the Gaelic word "Cuach" which means
shallow cup. It originated in the Scottish Highlands centuries ago.
Traditionally, the Quaich is used when offering a guest "the cup of welcome"
and again, when offering the farewell or parting drink.
The simple, destinctive design of the Quaich has remained unchanged
over the centuries - a shallow bowl with two handles or "lugs"
Originals were made from wood, horn or leather, later superseded by Pewter and Silver in the late 17th century.
