Cranes Drinks Launches Premium Apple Cider

Cranes premium apple cider

Homegrown British company, Cranes Drinks has been busy developing Cranes Premium Apple Cider, to follow on from the success of their naturally light range of tantalising fruit ciders. Now it is ready and hoping to make an impact in the on trade.


Cranes premium apple cider is brewed using the finest British apples, picked and pressed on the same day, to deliver a naturally crisp refreshing cider.


Founded and handcrafted by twin brothers Ben and Dan Ritsema, Cranes premium apple cider is naturally crisp, using 100% fresh juice.


“We have been asked a lot if we produce a traditional apple cider, so this got us thinking. We wanted to create something which was completely natural following on from our range of naturally light fruit ciders. We then began developing our apple cider which uses 100% fresh juice, as soon as the juice is pressed it goes straight into the tanker and is fermented naturally, the way we believe the Romans intended (inventors of cider)

Dan Ritsema, Co-Founder of Cranes Drinks Ltd.


Cranes Premium Apple Cider will be available on draught and in 500ml bottles, hopefully making a big impression at festivals and within the on trade.


We have been busy developing our premium apple cider to ensure we have created the most natural product possible, as consumers are demanding a more premium and natural taste. We have therefore handcrafted a cider which doesn’t add any yeast or refined sugars, keeping the process as simple and natural as it should be. We have also ensured that our cider is suitable for vegans and gluten-free”

Founded in 2012, Cranes Fruit Ciders, have been exceptionally well received at events and festivals across the country due to the natural taste and and are stocked in Asda, Ocado, East of England Co-op and Morrisons stores across East Anglia.
