Savannah Dry availability in New England?
For a long time, I've been wondering if there's any place to get the South African cider called "Savannah Dry" here in New England...
Back in 2000 or so, I discovered it at Austin Liquors in Shrewsbury, MA (on Rt 9 just before Worcester). They have since discontinued carrying it, and I've been worried that it's distribution in the US has been discontinued...
You can find a link to what it looks like, and a description here:
It's more dry than most hard ciders available here in the US, and I really miss it :)
Here's hoping there's another Savannah Dry fan who has found a source for this precious nectar.
I'm in the Acton, MA area, but I'm willing to drive pretty much anywhere in New England (within reason, i.e. probably not Caribou, ME) to get it.
Oh my gosh! Love it too. We just found it at Liquor Mart in Whittier, Ca! Don't know if this helps but we are so glad we found it! you will probabbly need to call them since they just said they got it this week!

Ooh handy list.. looks slightly promising seeing Connecticut and Rhode Island "TBD" instead of not on the list at all.
I've just gone on without having any of that tasty beverage since I last had it in oh, 2000 or so... I do miss it though.
Anyone have any other similarly dry hard ciders that might be easier to come by?
Savanna Dry has SA Granny Smith apples in it giving it it's dry, not too sweet flavor, and so they say, it's naturally brewed, with no chemical additives.
Not sure if this is a help.....I bought a small bottle of hard cider from Nashoba Winery in Bolton MA a month or so ago, cracked it open recently. I thought it was quite dry and was surprised by that.....but it is the only hard cider I've ever tried, so I have nothing to compare it to.
Unfortunately I haven't seen that cider here in the states only in England when I lived there. However, my best suggestion for you is to call Martignettis. They are very friendly and may even be able to order you a case or something or have a better idea where to look
