A refreshingly different drinks supplier


The elderflower season is here - and to us that means summer (yay)! Quintessentially English this dainty white flower is littering our countryside in a shower of white and with its nutritional value and Victorian roots it's the perfect addition to any bar. As a staple of rural tea parties, country houses and village fetes for generations, as family recipes have been handed down every summer it has risen in popularity and unforgettable this season.

Take a ramble through the hedgerows and see which of these handpicked elderflower drinks catches your eye!

Belvoir like to think that their elderflower drinks are a taste of the English summer in a glass - and we're inclined to agree!

 

Harvested from 90 acres of their own organic elderflower plantations on the farm in Lincolnshire, with help from the local community, Belvoir's elderflowers are picked by hand as part of a real team effort! With an expanding range there's plenty of choice: from elderflower cordials to presse and a light version at that!

Elderflower liqueurs are a perfect addition to summer. Delectable in a cocktail, poured over dessert or  as a long drink mix with sparkling mineral water - the delicacy of the elderflower shows true.

We have a growing range of elderflower liqueurs, Bramley & Gage's Elderflower Liqueur is made in small batches from hand picked elderflowers. This unique and versatile country liqueur captures the flower aroma and retains a fresh springtime taste.

Edinburgh Gin Elderflower Liqueur is distilled using the best native ingredients, locally sourced from the rural landscapes which surround Edinburgh. Subtle yet complex, this floral liqueur is made with freshly-picked elderflowers. The summer's elderflowers are hand picked in full bloom and then infused with their classic Edinburgh Gin. The flowers are then left to macerate for a month for full flavour extraction. 

 

Roam among the elderflower bushes this summer, soak up their aroma and offer your customers that drink with an added elderflower-extra!
