The Scottish quaich (pronounced quake) is a shallow cup that has been used for centuries to offer guests a welcoming toast. The cup represented the host’s generosity, and the two-handled design symbolized the guest’s trustworthiness, as it left him unable to reach for a weapon. Today quaichs are often found at Scottish weddings and other milestone occasions.
