The word ‘Quaich’ is derived from the Gaelic word ‘Cuach’ which means ‘shallow cup’ or as we know it today ‘drinking cup’.

The Quaich originated in the Scottish Highlands many centuries ago and became the favourite drinking cup through-out Scotland.

Drinking from a Quaich is an ancient Scottish ceremony, symbolic of trust, love and peace between two people.  It was traditionally used when offering a guest the ‘cup of welcome’ and again when offering the farewell or parting drink.

In a marriage ceremony it is used as a symbol of the life couples will share together and the Quaich represents the cup of life.  In drinking from the same cup, couples are symbolising your commitment to share all that their future may bring.
