Croft Pink is the first ever Port with a beautiful light ruby colour, achieved from light contact with the skins of traditional Port grapes, creating this wonderfully exciting rose style of Port. Served chilled it is fresh and vibrant and full of the rich, fruity flavours of Port.
Well you could just serve it chilled, but Croft decided to go one step further to add a little more excitement to the serving suggestions for its new pink baby by creating a series of fun recipes for added enjoyment.
Deluxe Pleasure, Pink Jasmine, Pink & Soda, Spiced Portugal, Pink Garden, Apple & Pink Julep and Frozen Pink Festival are the names of the new cocktails using Croft Pink as the base ingredient. Each recipe builds on the natural sweetness and fruit flavours in Croft Pink to create a cocktail using fresh summer fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and melons. Even jasmine tea and white chocolate make an appearance, but the natural fruit of Pink Port is always to the fore.
The House of Croft was founded over three hundred years ago. The earliest evidence of the firm’s activity as a Port shipper dates from 1588, coincidentally the year of the first ever recorded shipments of Port wine. The company was originally known as Phayre & Bradley after its founding partners and took its present name in 1736 when it was joined by John Croft, a member of an old and distinguished family of Yorkshire wine merchants.
