Three Wise Birds

You can call it craft, you can call it premium, we even call it ‘NZ style’. Truth is you can call it what you want, we’re just trying to make really good cider, for you to enjoy. Three Wise Birds is a Hawke’s Bay based cider company, run by brothers Jack and Charley Crasborn. A family name synonymous with the apple industry and growing world-class produce. The brothers have a history from the soil; having grown up on the family’s orchards in the fruit bowl of New Zealand. The lads grew up picking, packing and selling the very apples they now use and as such have a great understanding of the quality that goes into making their cider. A true branch to bottle story. We’re big on premium ingredients, real flavours and good times. To make this happen we believe in making our cider from only the best New Zealand apple varieties grown here in the Hawke’s Bay. Giving our cider, clean, crisp and refreshingly dry characteristics. Characteristics we believe fit the New Zealand way of life, whether it be the backyard, the beach or beyond.
