Monin UK has added a pumpkin spice syrup to its extensive product range in response to the increasing popularity of seasonal autumn and winter beverages.
Just in time for Halloween, Monin’s new premium syrup is made from real pumpkin juice and will help café, restaurant and bar owners to meet growing demand for the flavour during the colder months – a transatlantic trend heavily influenced by its immense popularity in the US, it said. The new Monin pumpkin spice syrup captures the earthy, autumnal flavour of pumpkin with a warm kick of spice from cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. It contains no artificial flavours or additives and is dairy and gluten free, kosher and suitable for vegans.
It is available in 750ml glass and 1 litre plastic bottles from various online suppliers, with a recommended retail price of £6 per bottle.
The syrup can be used just as easily for cocktails as it can for coffee.
James Coston, Monin’s UK brand ambassador, said: “Annual sales of pumpkin-flavoured food and beverage items have exceeded $350m in the US, so this is definitely an upward trend. Anecdotally, we know there is huge demand from UK consumers for seasonal flavoured drinks such as the ubiquitous pumpkin spice latte, so our new pumpkin spice syrup will help businesses create signature coffees and hot chocolates their customers will love.
“Monin pumpkin spice syrup also adds a spicy kick to a host of classic cocktails; combine it with brandy, fiery ginger beer and a dash of bitters for a pumpkin spice mule, or shake with vodka for a pumpkin spice martini. Like all Monin products, our new syrup will enable bartenders and baristas to experiment with exciting flavour combinations while maintaining excellent consistency and quality of flavour from drink to drink.”
