The text on the glass comes from a traditional Scottish song, "A Wee Deoch-an-Dorus". Deoch an doris is Gaelic for a drink at the door, or a last farewell drink. The chorus of the song is as follows:

Just a wee deoch an doris, just a wee drop, that's all.
Just a wee deoch an doris afore ye gang awa.
There's a wee wifie waitin' in a wee but an ben.
If you can say, "It's a braw bricht moonlicht nicht",
Then yer a'richt, ye ken.
