Created for the carbonated soft drinks market, flavours include a ‘classic line’ of well-known cocktail specialities, a ‘seasonal selection’, a medley of ‘fruit explosions’ and for those with a penchant for woody or smoky tasting drinks a series of ‘trip to the forest’ varieties.
Instead of rum, peach has been added to the traditional pineapple and coconut flavourings to create a Pina Colada-inspired ‘mocktail’.
Malt, tea and wood extracts have been used to replace the whisky notes in the classic cocktail ‘Old Fashioned’. Meanwhile, seasonal flavours have been created by combining apples, dates and honey for winter, and orange flower, mango and tea extracts for spring and summer.
‘Something beyond ordinary’
“Consumers are looking for something beyond ordinary soft drinks and mocktails bridge this gap,” said Stefano Asti, technical director at Sensient Flavors.
“Owing to their sophisticated flavour profiles, manufacturers can position these drinks as premium.”
