The quaich: Scotland’s cup of friendship
“Quaich” is a Scots rendering of the Gaelic word “cuach”, meaning cup.
The quaich is designed to be a sharing cup but with the extra large quaich this does not need to mean you loose out on your fill of your favourite single malt. Perfect for sharing amongst a large group of people such as a wedding as it holds over 400ml which is 12 Scottish drams or over half a bottle of whisky!
Most quaichs sold today are mass produced in pewter or silver plate. Originally however, the quaich had more humble beginnings being carved from a single piece of wood, most probably by Highland crofters and lathe workers. Metal quaichs came later to attend to the refined needs of the wealthier Scots. So when you share a dram from a hand-carved wooden quaich like this one, you are getting back to the roots of a true working Highlander!
