The Declaration of Arbroath Quaich

A Quality Polished Pewter Quaich

Traditionally offered as a cup of welcome or farewell. The word Quaich is derived from the Gaelic "Cuach" which means "shallow cup".

This simple cup with two handles or "Lugs" was originally made from wood, horn or leather. Later pewter was used, an ancient and traditional metal used in Scotland for centuries. Pewter was discovered by the Romans about 200 AD and was known as the "Metal of Kings" because it could only be afforded by royalty.

This Highland Greeting Cup is now gaining popularity for toasting many happy occasions.

That we are fighting but for freedom - For that alone - which no honest man gives up but with life itself"
