Joseph Krug founded Krug Champagne in 1843. Before founding Krug Joseph spent 8 years working for Jacquesson Champagne, and it was during this time he set about understanding wine process, taste, quality and probably most importantly listening to wine merchants and consumers about what they did and didn’t like. With this knowledge and passion Joseph created a Champagne brand around prestige and quality. Krug was a multi-generational business where knowledge, know how and tradition were handed down to the following generation, however in 1999 the Krug family sold a majority stake to the LVMH business. The Krug family still have a member on the board, and whilst they don’t have the day to day involvement they are still actively involved in major strategic decisions.
Krug quality and prestige (and higher pricing) comes from the prolonged ageing period of both the 1st fermented wines and after the 2nd fermentation when bottles spend between 5 to 10 years ageing and developing in the Krug cellars.

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.
