Cocktail specialist Funkin has introduced what is claimed to be the UK’s first ever hemp syrup to its single batch PRO range.
The new FunkinPRO Hemp Syrup has been developed to complement a broad range of spirits and cocktail ingredients, including flavoured gins, tequila, spiced rums and bitters. Featuring herbal and green tea notes, it has also been developed with lower ABV serves in mind.
Now classed as a superfood, hemp has seen a resurgence in popularity in the food and drink industry due to its high protein qualities and unique aromatic flavour profile.
Created using hemp seed extract sourced from the UK, FunkinPRO Hemp Syrup has a light green/yellow colour.
Funkin head of marketing Ben Anderson said: “FunkinPRO Hemp Syrup adds a true point of difference from a flavour perspective, creates stand-out on a cocktail menu and drives talkability from a customer perspective.”
“Innovation is rooted in our DNA and we are always looking to introducing exciting new flavours and bring new dynamics into the ever-growing cocktail market. FunkinPRO Hemp Syrup is yet another example of us pushing boundaries.”
The FunkinPRO single batch syrups are sweetened with pure cane sugar, and contain no artificial flavouring, sweeteners or colourings.
