The word ‘Quaich’ comes from the Gaelic word ‘cuach’ meaning cup. Many websites will tell you that it is pronounced ‘quake’ but in Scotland we actually pronounce the ‘ch’ in the same manner as we would for the word ‘loch’. The Quaich is also known as the Scottish “Loving Cup” or “Cup of Friendship”.
A Quaich is a traditional Scottish shallow drinking cup with two handles on opposite sides that is typically carved out of wood, probably in imitation of a scallop shell from which drams of whisky are believed to have been drunk. There were also larger Quaichs used for ale, the largest surviving one being big enough to hold 1,5 pints.
