Originating in the Scottish Highlands, traditionally the quaich served as a ‘Cup of Welcome’ and when offering a farewell drink. The Quaich was originally made from the primitive ‘staved’ wood and later crafted from horn or leather. Eventually pewter and silver became popular as it became the favourite drinking cup throughout Scotland. Having the engravings done locally in Stirling, your Personalised Scottish Quaich Pewter Thistle Handle will hold on to its Scottish roots.
The term Quaich derives from the Gaelic word “cuach” meaning “shallow cup”. Over the centuries the distinctive design has remained unchanged – a shallow drinking bowl with 2 handles, referred to colloquially as ‘lugs’.
