The word “QUAICH” is derived from the Gaelic word “Cuach” which means “shallow cup” or as we know it today, a “drinking cup”.  The Quaich originated in the Scottish Highlands centuries ago and became the favourite drinking cup throughout Scotland.  Traditionally, the Quaich is used when offering a guest “the cup of welcome” and again when offering the farewell or parting drink.  The simple but pleasing distinctive design of the Quaich has remained unchanged over the centuries – a shallow bowl with two handles or ears, colloquially known as “lugs”.
