Bottle of the Week: Leedle crazy for Loco

23 March 2016 - 10:23 By Neil Pendock

Savanna Loco tequila-flavour cider How much and where? R75 for a six-pack of 330ml bottles, widely availableWhy? The perennial hipster problem of what to drink before the sipping-tequila chaser has been neatly solved by Distell, second biggest cider producer in the world: Savanna Loco. Loco is Mexican for mad,but it is also an anagram of "cool" and this refreshing cider is certainly that.Served ice-cold with a wedge of lime in the neck, it is the banting replacement for Sol beer. The taste is Aztec apple: bone dry with a twist of vetplant and a salty aftertaste. At 6% alcohol, it won't set your sombrero spinning.A masterpiece of design that catapults scrumpy jack from bucolic Somerset and ruddy farmers in tweed jackets to Acapulco and Latin Adonises, diving off a sheer cliff. Sheer pleasure for the price of a fizzy cold-drink and less sugar.Rating ******** Montezuma**** Emiliano Zapata*** Diego Rivera** Carlos Slim* Pancho Villa
