The quaich (pronounced quake from the Gaelic word cuach) has a rich heritage in Scotland – indeed it is a uniquely Scottish invention,
having no apparent connection to any other European drinking vessel.
Traditionally used in Scotland to celebrate a bond between two clans, it was also used in the 17th century to offer
welcome to travellers and is now commonly used in wedding and christening ceremonies.
The Celts used knotwork to decorate many of their artifacts.
To them, the intricate patterns woven into spirals and knots symbolise the continuity of life.
