'Quaich' translated from Celtic to English means 'a cup of love a cup of friendship'. 

It is a traditional Scottish drinking cup that has been used for centuries to share a dram of whisky with friends and guests. Its history can be traced back to the 16th century with Kings James VI of Scotland giving a special decorative Quaich to Anne of Denmark in 1589 as a wedding gift. 

As the popularity of whisky grew in Scotland, so did the use of the Quaich as a vessel for sharing the drink. 

Today, the Quaich remains an important part of Scottish culture and heritage, and is still used in formal and informal occasions as a symbol of friendship and goodwill.
