Ayala Champagne was founded by Edmond de Ayala in 1860 in the village of Aÿ. Edmond followed his pursuit of excellence and innovation launching a dry champagne using only a fraction of the usual amount of sugar during its bottling and seconded fermentation. Whilst Ayala is a lesser known Champagne brand, it was immensely popular in England during the early 1900’s producing over a million bottles a year and being awarded a royal warrant by King Edward VII.
Ayala was acquired by the Bollinger family in 2005 with an ambition to restore the brand to its former greatness. This started with the building of a new winery and the appointment of a new team focused on reviving Edmond de Ayala approach of excellence and innovation.

We treat all personalised bottles individually, taking our time and experience to set out your message to create the most impactful bottle decoration possible. This may include increase the size of some fonts within the message to pay particular focus on key lines or phrases, spacing message over extra lines and removing unnecessary punctuation.
If you can type it, we can engrave it! When using alternative languages it may be neccessary for us to alter the font to ensure all characters are supported, in these cases we use the closest style font to your original selection.
Unfortunatley we are unable to engrave emoji's or picture characters. Where these are added the character will be removed from your message.
We specially select the fonts we use. Once a bottle has been engraved the cut glass is then infilled with a special decorative silver paste. These fonts ensure we provide the optimum width and depth during the engraving process to creat maximum visibility once infilled.
The fonts we currently use are: Lucida Calligraphy, Lucida Handwriting, Verdana and Segoe Print.
