Stoney Ginger Beer, or Stoney Tangawizi (Tangawisi) as it is called in Swahili speaking Africa, is a ginger beer sold in several countries on the African continent. The product, sold in a brown bottle or can, is made and distributed by The Coca-Cola Company.
As is common with ginger beers in comparison to the lighter ginger ales, the ginger flavor present in Stoney is especially intense. There are several varieties of Stoney in different parts of Africa. Although they are all bottled by Coca-Cola their recipes vary. The versions in Southern Africa tend to be more carbonated and sweeter while the East Africa version tends to have a much stronger ginger bite. Stoney Ginger Beer was introduced in South Africa in 1971.
