Espolón tequila was founded by distilling verteran Cirilo Oropeza. Cirilo’s started his distilling career in 1965, and with 30 years experience he set about creating his own distilling company. Cirilo had the Casa San Nicolas Distillery built to his exact specification, starting operations in 1995, and in 1998 he created the Espolon brand.
The distillery is located in Jalisco Highlands where the Blue Webber Agave grows in rich volcanic soils, when harvested the agave plant is slow roasted for over 20 hours and slowly distilled for over 5 hours. The water used in the distillation is drawn from 250 meters beneath Jalisco region.

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.
