Description

This handmade wooden Quaich is crafted from Swirly grain Elm. As the perfect wedding gift, our handmade Elm Quaich is Scotland’s traditional cup of friendship and is used during the wedding ceremony for couples to exchange whisky symbolising two families becoming one.

Dating back to the 16th century, the wooden Quaich has been offered through the centuries as a welcoming gift at Clan Gatherings and to visitors from far and wide across the world. The word “Quaich” is a Scots rendering of the Gaelic word “Cuach”, meaning cup.  The two handed design of this vessel incorporates trust on the part of both the giver and receiver.

Our new range of Wooden Quaichs made from Elm, has been individually handcrafted, starting as a cylindrical block of timber, which has then been shaped and sculpted through five separate lathe stages and then three hand finish processes.  Any spaces in the timber that would naturally occur are then filled with our very own resin to enhance the natural beauty of the timber. We have used cutting edge CNC technology to achieve accuracy and detail in the design of the handle. We have handpicked only the finest selection of Elm timber to be used for this range of exclusive Elm Wooden Quaichs.

Our stock of Elm has been expertly and lovingly stored by ourselves for over 16 years.

Bio Security for export

The Burr Elm Wooden Quaich is a non-commercial object that has been kiln dried at a temperature of 40 degrees in our on-site kiln for a period of at least six weeks. This process has irradiated the timber of any termite, seed or other contaminant presence.

As this is a handcrafted product made from a natural material all Quaichs will differ slightly in grain shape and colour. Size approximately 15cm x 10cm x 4cm
