Cocktail mixer producer Funkin has expanded its Pro range of syrups with the addition of the UK’s “first” hemp-flavoured variant.Funkin Pro Hemp Syrup is said to have herbal and green tea notes, and is recommended to complement gin, Tequila, spiced rum and bitters. It is made using UK-sourced hemp seed extract and has a “light green/ yellow” colour. The hemp-flavoured syrup is available in cases of six 360ml bottles, at an RRP of £4 (US$5) per bottle and carries a two-year shelf life. Ben Anderson, Funkin head of marketing, said: “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. Funkin Pro Hemp Syrup is yet another example of us pushing boundaries. “Funkin Pro 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.” In October, Funkin created a range of ready-to-serve dried cocktail garnishes in a bid to help bars cut down on their costs and food waste. Meanwhile, earlier this year, Funkin founder Alex Carlton moved into the non-alcoholic distilled 'spirits' market with the launch of Stryyk Not Rum and Stryyk Not Gin.
