K is a distinctive full strength, premium cider expertly pressed with a unique blend of English apples to give a full-bodied flavour and natural rich golden colour. It has always been presumed that ‘X’ means strength however premium liquids of a superior quality have always been marked with a ‘K’

NOTE: The version available in the United States is different.
Previoussly a Gaymers brand but this seems to have been dropped.
In March 2012, C&C stated that they plan to phase out the brand in the UK but have not given any date.
