Agave Nectar has been launched to meet the rising demand for “skinny cocktails” in the UK, according to Funkin. The company claims the product contains 40% fewer calories per serve than “standard” sugar syrup and is a low GI sweetner. 

Andrew King, Funkin's CEO, told journalists at a press launch in London yesterday (29 May): “Agave as a product is very on-trend at the moment. It has a low GI, but is sweeter than sugar.” 

He added that the product had been developed “in response to calls from bartenders to enhance drinks menus with a skinny offering.” 

Agave Nectar will be available alongside Funkin's five-strong range of syrups, including two new flavours, mint and vanilla. 

A company spokesperson confirmed it had also had orders from France and Poland for the new product.
