A legal row is brewing in the drinks industry over the brand name Savanna. InterContinental Brands is using it for a range of schnapps-based premium packaged spirits which will be sponsoring the first series of Sex and the City on the Paramount Comedy Channel. Savanna is also a South African cider sold in the UK by distributor Babco whose md Chris Bowen said there were no plans to change the name. InterContinental Brands md Paul Burton warned: "The Savanna name is registered to us in the UK. If another drink is launched under the same name we will take appropriate legal steps." {{DRINKS }}
