Franklin & Sons unveils Mixer Collection for dark spiritsBy Melita Kiely
Inspired by dark spirits, Franklin & Sons has added two new flavours to its Mixer Collection: Pineapple Mixer with Almond, and Mandarin Mixer with Ginger.
The non-quinine Mixer Collection has been designed to push the boundaries of traditional ginger ales and cola, creating more flavour options for mixing with rum, whisky, Tequila, Bourbon and vermouth.
The Mandarin Mixer with Ginger is a twist on ginger ale, while the Pineapple Mixer with Almond was inspired by ingredients grown in tropical destinations, pineapple being one such ingredient, as well as the use of almond in tiki drinks, such as the Mai Tai.
Both flavours are carbonated and contain less than 5g of sugar per 100ml.
Rosie Crossman, senior brand manager at Franklin & Sons, said: “We are committed to encouraging bartenders and consumers to explore flavour in new ways – having fun and experimenting.
“The new low sugar flavours offer mixability with a whole array of spirits, made for those who crave something fresh, without quinine, and subtle, with the incredible innovation within the rum and whisky category.”
