Savanna cider is on a roll! Firstly, they introduced the 500ml / half litre bottle, then they made things can-venient for their consumers by introducing the 330ml can. Now, it looks like they have a black sheep in their family…….an unconventional and quirky Savanna Dark in a stylish new black bottle!
Anyone who knows me on a personal level knows for a fact that I love Savanna. It’s my drink. Okay, to be more precise, between Savanna light and Savanna Dry I prefer the latter. A good friend of mine is a hardcore consumer of Savanna Light, she says it takes care of babalas (hangover) ha! Therefore, when I found out they are introducing a new variant, I wanted to give it a try and share my opinion.
Savanna Dark is slow brewed for a fuller flavour however it embodies that crisp and premium apple taste. Alcohol volume is at 6% and the new Savanna Dark is retailing at R55 per six – pack and R220 per case. The cider market is becoming very competitive with a number of new ciders being introduced this year. However, Savanna is not backing down and they took second place in the cider category of the Sunday Times Top Brands 2013.
My opinion after tasting the Savanna Dark….. I still prefer Savanna Dry. I would like to hear your opionions, have you tried the new Savanna Dark? What do you think of the taste profile? Do you like it better than Savanna Dry?
Some of the views on twitter are too funny….
