Easy way to enjoy a classic

Funkin peach cocktail

COCKTAIL mixer brand Funkin has expanded its canned cocktail range with the launch of Peach Bellini.

The new RTD offers consumers the classic sparkling wine cocktail – invented in Venice in the 1930s – in a convenient format.

Funkin Peach Bellini is available in a 12x250ml pack with a 12-month shelf life. The new variant has an RRP of £2 and is 5% ABV.

The new RTD is the latest in a line of canned cocktails from Funkin. The brand’s Nitro canned range includes Passion Fruit Martini, Espresso Martini, Pina Colada and Strawberry Daiquiri.

Funkin marketing director Ben Anderson said: “The popularity of cocktails in the UK continues, with spritz cocktails up by 71% and now in the UK’s top 10 favourite cocktails.

“Our Peach Bellini is the ultimate summer aperitif and serves up all the vibrant flavour and colour of one crafted at the bar.

“This canned RTD serve enables consumers to enjoy it anytime, anywhere and we encourage retailers to capitalise on the opportunity.

“Our 21 years’ experience in the cocktail market allows us to provide retailers with the knowledge and insight they need to stock the right products.”
