Historical Significance

The term "Quaich" comes from the Scottish Gaelic word 'Cuach,' meaning cup. Historically, Quaich's were used to offer a drink of welcome or farewell, often filled with whiskey or brandy. The tradition of the Quaich reflects the hospitality and warmth of Celtic culture.

Originally crafted from wood, Quaich's eventually were made from more luxurious materials such as silver and horn. Our pewter Quaich carries forward this tradition with its durable, elegant design and is perfect for anyone looking to add a touch of historical charm to their drinkware collection.
