The merchant company that we know today as Croft was founded in 1588, during Elizabeth I?s reign, by Henry Thompson of York, England. Today, Croft is a part of the Fladgate Partnership, three of the most historic and highly regarded Porto houses, including Taylor Fladgate, Fonseca and Croft?a family-owned company that sets the standard to which other Port houses aspire.
Croft created the Pink Porto category with Croft Pink, an original offering that is perfect for those summer days or socializing at the bar. It is the first to display an attractive pink color, achieved through light contact with the skins, followed by a cold fermentation for 7 days that preserves its fresh raspberry and cherry flavors. This innovative style of port is lighter with a unique crisp and fruity flavor. It can be served chilled or over ice, with a splash of soda and a slice of lemon. Croft Pink is delightfully crisp, fresh and fruity.
