A richly fruity and rounded Reserve Ruby Port released to celebrate Croft's 430th anniversary. Presented in a traditional-style bottle – one that resembles those used by port-makers for centuries - and bearing a label featuring the Spanish Armada, which invaded in the same year that Croft founder Henry Thompson became a wine merchant, this is a fabulous commemorative bottle.

The artwork on the label is 'The Sinking of the Spanish Armada in 1588' by Jan Luyken, which is currently on display in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.


Port will continue to age in the bottle and will improve in flavour if kept in good conditions.

The ideal storage conditions are up to 16º Celsius and most importantly at a constant temperature.

The bottle should rest on its side, thus keeping the cork moist and therefore an effective seal.

This item includes our bespoke design and engraving service. Every item is individually hand engraved using traditional sandblasting techniques.

On your order please add details of what you would like engraved, it can be images, words or a combination of both.

On each bottle unless otherwise stated the engraving area is the front face of the bottle, we will arrange and size your design to best fit.


For wording we will as standard centre align and size the text based on the design and the amount to be engraved. 

If you want a specific font let us know or we can chose one to fit.

As the old saying goes "less is more", shorter lines look better as the font can be larger.


We have a large library of images to cover most occasions so if you have something in mind just describe it and we can provide options.

If you are looking for a specific logo or crest you can upload a file such as a word document, ai file or pdf and if we don't have it we will professionally convert it to engrave at no extra charge.

The limits to this are the image had to be definable into black and white so unfortunately we cannot convert photos and some other designs.

If there are any issues with an uploaded design we will contact you by email about an alternative.


By law we have to maintain certain details about the bottle from the label such as the brand name, producer details as well as volume and alcohol content. This is engraved on the back of the bottle as a special version of the label.

Please note due to licencing we cannot engrave Army/MOD crests on bottles

Engraving Process

After ordering we will take your details and design your engraving templates, then email them to you for approval.

On the design the areas in black will be engraved so appear silver white on the engraved item.

It is very important that you check these designs carefully for any errors because the order cannot be changed or cancelled once engraved.

Once approved the design template is and printed then transferred to a special mask which can be engraved through. 

The mask is applied to the engraving area and high pressure sand is used to cut the glass.

In the final stage a special paint is infilled into the engraving to enhance the finish.
