WE ARE STARTING A REVOLUTION!

Sxollie craft cider big x

With time and attention we craft our single varietal SXOLLIE ciders. Apples sourced from the cool orchards of Elgin in the Cape Town region are pressed, with the fresh juice then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Champagne yeasts are used to ensure an elegant flavour profile, before careful bottling and carbonation that delivers a delicate sparkle to the final product. The result? A light, easy-drinking, sessionable cider that captures the essence of the fruit.

While our ciders may have their roots in rural orchards, our heart and soul resides in the city. The blend of global trend and home-grown hustle is perfectly encapsulated in our striking SXOLLIE bottles, the elegant 330ml size adding a touch of urban sophistication. The eye-catching ‘X’ mosaic emblazoned across the bottle is inspired by pottery designs synonymous with southern Africa, yet also offers a nod to our Afropolitan roots in the urban jungle.

We want to capture something that is traditionally African, but to put it in a modern African concept. We are unashamedly African, yet with an eye on the horizon, ready to take on the world. SXOLLIE is ready for a hustle, with the cheek to take a chance and an eye on the prize. The proof? Take a look at that free-floating X heading swiftly towards the neck of each and every SXOLLIE bottle. That’s the SXOLLIE who rose to the top, the hustler who made it.

So grab a bottle, pop the crown cap and embrace the SXOLLIE within.
