Gran Centenario tequila was created in 1895 by Lázaro Gallardo, the founder of Jose Cuervo. Its name was intended to commemorate both the start of a new century and to honour the 100th anniversary of Mexican independence from Spain in 1910. Originally produced to sell within Gallardo’s tavern the tequila was sold direct from barrels and it was only in 1920 that the brand was bottled to be sold for wider consumption. The Gran Centenario logo features The Angel of Independence, which appears on the Mexican Centenario 50-peso gold coin that was minted to commemorate its hard-fought independence, the bottle design took inspiration from the art deco movement of the 1920’s, the decade of its first bottling.
Gran Centenario Tequila is a blend of different batches of spirit, including some aged Tequila reserves, designed to produce Centenario’s unique aroma and taste profile. Gallardo used a proprietary process of blending old, smooth Tequilas with fresh spirit to ceate a product of exceptional quality and taste. This process of blending is known as Selección Suave. Gran Centenario produces plata tequila, reposado tequila, anejo tequila and extra anejo tequila. The products available are Gran Centenario Plata, Gran Centenario Reposado and Gran Centenario Anejo.

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.
