From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
K is a British cider manufactured and distributed by the Gaymer Cider Company of Bath, England.
Advertised under the slogan 'Strong. Refreshing. Different.', the canned version available in the UK is 8.4% ABV while the bottled version comes in two varieties, 8.4% and "K6" at 6.3%. The bottled version available in the US is 6.9%.
Cans and bottles of K have a highly distinctive look, coloured black with a scarlet K in the centre of the container. Each can has the following legend printed upon it: "It has always been presumed that 'X' means strength however premium liquids of a superior quality have always been marked with a 'K'. So when you want the ultimate in quality, look for this K."
Also in the bottled variety there was an ultra violet Limited Edition in a mauve bottle which reflected UV light for the club scene.
K has gained a cult following in certain areas of London. A "K-Cider Festival" is held each summer at Twickenham Recreation Grounds; the next such event will be held 5 August 2010.
