Black Isle Ash Wood Quaich | Paul Hodgkiss Designs

There is only one Black Isle Ash Wood Quaich left in this exclusive line of Quaichs. 

As the perfect wedding gift, our handmade Black Isle Ash Wood Quaich is one of Scotlands traditional cups of friendship and is used during a 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 Black Isle Ash Wood Quaich 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 resin which enhances the natural beauty of the timber. Using cutting edge CNC technology, we can achieve accuracy and detail in the design of the handle. This is bespoke one-of-a-kind Quaich.

Bio Security for export

The Black Isle Ash Wood 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 Paul Hodgkiss Designs Quaichs will differ slightly in size.

Size approximately 15cm x 10cm x 4cm | 0.5kg
