Sensient’s new flavour range means a sophisticated soft drinks choice. It captures the taste profile of popular cocktails – without the alcohol but with outstanding flavour twists.
With its latest range, Sensient Flavors offers solutions for exceptional soft drink variants that especially appeal to adults. Its new line of flavours for cocktail-inspired soft drinks is based on comprehensive trend spotting in fashionable capitals such as Paris, Milan and London. Created for the production of carbonated soft drinks, the new portfolio comprises a “classic line” of well-known cocktail specialties, a “seasonal selection,” a medley of “fruit explosions” and, for those with a penchant for woody or smoky tasting drinks, there’s the “trip to the forest” varieties.
Sensient’s new range is characterized by the cocktail’s familiar core elements, which are further refined with an innovative twist. So, instead of rum, peach was added to the traditional pineapple and coconut flavourings to create the Pina-Colada-inspired mocktail. Malt, tea and wood extracts have been used to replace the whiskey notes in the classic cocktail ‘Old Fashioned’. Peach, rhubarb and lime have been expertly blended to produce a sensorial explosion of fruit flavours: Seasonal taste sensations have been created by combining apples, dates and honey for winter, and orange flower, mango and tea extracts for spring and summer.
“Soft drinks are a popular alternative to alcoholic beverages, especially during a night out. And, as demand for novel sensory experiences continues to rise, consumers are looking for something beyond the ordinary selection of soft drinks. Mocktails bridge this gap perfectly; they appeal to adults who are seeking outstanding and innovative taste sensations. In addition, owing to their sophisticated ingredient composition and flavour profiles, manufacturers can position these drinks in the premium segment”, says Stefano Asti, Technical Director at Sensient Flavors Beverage Europe.
