THIS IS HOW I ENGRAVED 18 BOURBON BOTTLES WITH A DENTAL DRILL.

3An account executive responsible for local sales of this bourbon brand had a few names and generic messages on his Christmas list.
I started with a new #6 round carbide and it lasted will for all three dozen I did.  Antique Gold Rub ‘N Buff was added to the engraved letters.
Centering/layout was done on the fly, using a piece of 3/4″ tape with the ANGELS ENVY base line for the top edge.  Marked the bottom edge with a small dashed line with a marker.  Moved the top of the tape to that line and then strung color along the top and bottom edges for both base lines on Happy Holidays.
The 18 bottles took 90 minutes total.  A look at the photo brought a quick email with good vibes from the account executive.  I have an idea there will be more.
