If you haven't yet been enlightened, Savanna Dry is a "New World" cider, from the ancient land of South Africa. Since the day of its creation it has been supped straight from the glass bottle with a slice of lemon popped in the top. So, there's no need for a glass or ice. Cider is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of apples. Although cider can be made from any variety of apple, certain cultivars are preferred in some regions, and these may be known as cider apples. One of the two main types of cider produced and distributed in South Africa by Distell group Limited, Savanna Dry was first introduced in South Africa in 1996 as an alternative to beer.
