Quaich

Home » GIFTS » Quaich

The Quaich has a rich heritage in Scotland - indeed it is a uniquely Scottish invention, having no apparent connection to any other European drinking vessel.
Traditionally used in Scotland to celebrate a bond between two clans, it was also used in the 17th century to offer
welcome to travellers and is now commonly used in wedding and christening ceremonies.
