Cranes?

Cranes is a brand innovating and developing drinks using the super berry cranberry.

  • Cranes ‘cider’ a delicious new range of alcoholic drinks made uniquely from brewed cranberries available in 3 refreshingly chilled flavours. At 4% ABV, there’s 1.1 units of alcohol per bottle and is 100% natural; and 99 calories.
  • Cranes Liqueur is an exquisite and smooth Cranberry & Blood Orange Liqueur, made with the finest cranberries from Wisconsin USA, along with blood orange juice and orange rind. 20% vol. 35cl.

So why “Cranes”? We came up with the name Cranes having discovered that in the 17th century cranberries were discovered in America and were given the name “craneberries” after the small, pink blossoms which resemble the head and bill of a Sandhill crane.

Three Distinctive Flavours

Cranes is unique – the alcohol comes purely from brewed crushed cranberries (cider comes from apples), and the flavours are enriched with the juice of the fruits. Cranes contains no artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives – so the rich colours come from the fruits, and you’ll also find it’s lightly sparkling and not too sweet. Visit the shop now.

Our Story

We’re Dan and Ben, identical twins, told apart by Dan’s sexy/scruff­y beard; we live near Cambridge and founded Cranes.

How did it all start? We were at university a few years ago, some 150 miles apart, and knew we’d set up something together but weren’t sure what. We both love rugby, a drink out with friends and hard work … well the hard work came after uni. Both of us are health conscious and after our ‘market research’ at uni – that’s going out with friends – we wanted to come up with a product that you could enjoy, that wasn’t full of sugar, high calories and artificial. So got us thinking…

The story . . .

. . .we love cranberries and know they’re pretty healthy, so we tried fermenting them and came up with a 4% alcoholic drink with lower calories and high juice . . . that started the adventure.

Months later, we met Ivor Harrison. He’s been around the block a bit working in food and drinks for the last 25 years and helps keep us focused and on track. Together we’ve developed the brand, the drink itself, the website, the plan and so it goes on.
