The Highland Quaich
Traditionally the "Quaich", which originated in the Scottish Highlands was used both for a "Cup of Welcome" and also when offering a farewell drink.
The Quaich was originally made from the primitive "staved" wood, then later from horn or leather, eventually pewter and silver becoming popular as it became the favorite drinking cup throughout Scotland.
Being derived from the Gaelic word "cauch" meaning "shallow cup" the distinctive design has remained unchanged over the centuries - a shallow drinking bowl with 2 handles, colloquially known as "lugs".
