AG Barr-owned Funkin will release a new range of nitrogen-infused canned cocktails, created to help bartenders speed up the cocktail-making process.
Available from May in the UK, the line, which is infused with nitrogen for a smooth finish, features four variants: espresso martini, passionfruit martini, amaretto sour, and pink gin fizz.
Funkin said each beverage “delivers a creamy foam head and a smooth and velvety mouthfeel, which is usually only achieved through shaking a cocktail”.
Ben Anderson, marketing director at Funkin Cocktails, said: “Our product development team has worked tirelessly to ensure that Funkin nitro canned cocktails deliver the best overall drinking experience compared to anything else on the market.
“Funkin nitro canned cocktails are perfectly suited to outlets wishing to serve cocktails but don’t have the necessary tools or trained staff. Whether a pub, restaurant, venue or festival, we are making high-quality, consistent cocktails accessible to every bartender, everywhere.”
Packed 12 x 200ml to the case and with a 12-month shelf life, each Funkin Nitro Canned Cocktail has an ABV of 5%.
Established in 1999 by entrepreneur Alex Carlton, Funkin was acquired by soft drinks group AG Barr in 2015.
To mark its 20th anniversary, the brand rolled out a fresh packaging design earlier this year for its range of purées, syrups, shrubs, pre-batched mixers, garnishes, and draught products.
The range features silver packaging with coloured icons depicting flavours and ingredients.
