Nantucket Nectars Big Cranberry
Cranberries and Cranberry Juice have been an important part of Nantucket's history. The decline of the whaling industry and the Great Fire of 1846 forced islanders to find an alternative source of income --- cranberries. Our Cranberry Juice is made from cranberries harvested primarily in New England. We use a blend of two cranberry species, the McFarlin and the Pilgrim, both known to withstand the severe climate of Northeast winters. Local juice guys told us this juice encouraged "bigger" gulps, hence the name "Big Cranberry".
