Premium mixer brand CAPI is emerging from winter with three new flavours to help bring “some sunshine, good times and refreshing drinks.”
The new flavours, which will be launched next month under the CAPI CF Selection (CF standing for Craft Flavours), are Dry Tonic, Flamin’ Ginger Beer and The Sicilian. The brand says that the new flavours have been “tried and tested by some of the best bartenders in the country; including the guys from Black Pearl, The Beaufort and Bad Frankie”.
CAPI owner Pitzy Folk added that the insights and opportunities for the new flavours have come “directly from speaking to customers, retailers and extensive research by our development team.”
The Dry Tonic is described as having a “citric subtleness and a crisp dry finish”, and has been designed as the ideal mixer for the booming the gin market. It has Cinchona bark as a botanical along with lemon, lime and orange essential oils.
Sebastian Costello from Bad Frankie said: “The new CAPI Dry Tonic has less sugar which helps bring out the late arriving flavours in any gin, like aniseed. It’s very interesting to taste how much sugar plays a role in a gin and tonic.”
The Flamin’ Ginger Beer is blended with double the ginger, chilli and capsicum extracts. This product was developed in conjunction with Dave Kerr, who said: “Working with CAPI on this product has given us the ability to create a ginger beer from the ground up; that at every turn has been designed to be mixed. Its whole reason for being is to be a world class ginger beer, used by bartenders in classic combinations that have the heat and ginger profile everyone has been asking for.”
Finally The Sicilian is described as a “sophisticated mixer with a bitter blood orange base” and this has been blended with citrus oils and cinnamon bark.
The CAPI CF Selection will be released on 12 October and will be available in Dan Murphy’s, BWS, plus selected restaurants and bars.
