Thought to originate in the 17th Century in the Scottish Highlands, the silver quaich was designed as a vessel for drinking whisky or bandy, and was regarded as a sign of friendship and hospitality, used to toast both the arrival and departure of guests. Made throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries, they are still very popular pieces, and make excellent gifts for all occasions, or an excellent way to enjoy a good whisky.
