A quaich is a special kind of shallow two-handled drinking cup or bowl in Scotland. The word derives from the Scottish Gaelic 'cuach' meaning a cup.
In Scotland quaichs are often used in ceremonial occasions particularly to signify friendship or co-operation, this includes weddings where they are increasinly used in the ceremony. The tradition dates back to James VI who gave a 'loving cup' to Anne of Denmark in 1589.
Quaichs are also given as awards and prizes, or to recognise significant events and achievements such as graduations.
Beyond Scotland they have become better-known since the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014 where medal-winners were also presented with a wooden quaich.
