It all started with a phone call from a client asking for liquor bottle engraving. He wanted to present his brother’s favorite bourbon in a special way for his birthday and asked us if we engraved liquor bottles. He told us he had a special bottle of Blanton’s Bourbon he wanted to give his brother along with a special message to engrave on it.
We hand engraved the brother’s nickname, “DIDIE” using a stippling effect using a dental drill. It was literally done dot by dot, outlining the exact font the client chose and then filling it in. The stippling matched the stopper on top of the bottle and really brought the entire design together.
Then we used free hand calligraphy to engrave the message on the liquor bottle. (There is truly nothing we can’t engrave calligraphy on in our shop. The only exception is plastic.)
The liquor bottle itself is molded in great shape that enhanced the calligraphy with its facets of glass. We engraved each letter in a facet so it would be centered on the front of the liquor bottle. We engraved the birthday message and date on the back.
The engraved liquor bottle was a big hit! The client’s brother didn’t even want to open it because it was so unique.
Liquor bottle engraving is a lot of fun. We can get really creative depending on the shape of the liquor bottle itself. These bottles make fantastic gifts during the holidays for law firms, CPAs and other corporate gifts as well as great groomsmen and wedding gifts too.
