“The delicate scent of elderflowers is as quintessentially English as tea parties and village fetes and, in the countryside, it’s often said that summer has only really arrived when the elderflowers start appearing in the hedgerows at the beginning of June.” – Belvoir Fruit Farms
Makes you want to visit England, doesn’t it? Most of us here in the states have no idea what Elderflowers smell like, and it still sounds great. Fortunately, you don’t have to use your imagination because Belvoir has captured the flavor and aroma of the enticing elderflower and put it into a bottle.
The product? Elderflower Pressé.
Made 100% naturally at Belvoir Fruit Farms in Lincolnshire, England, from handpicked elderflowers, fresh lemon juice, cane sugar and lightly carbonated Belvoir spring water. This a delicate beverage with an exquisitely scented taste. Serve chilled as a sophisticated and refreshing alternative to alcohol or add white wine or champagne for aromatic spritzers or mix with gin or vodka for great cocktails. Belvoir Elderflower water is best served cold on a hot day, but its unique flavor can be enjoyed year round with any meal or by itself.
This refreshing drink is well known and loved throughout Europe, although the flower is known by different names: Fliederbeerblute in Austria, Fleur de sureau in France. But it is almost completely unknown here. So we’re getting ours from England and are having to bring it in by the pallet load because it is so popular. Stop by the store and we’ll give you a taste. Or call us to get some for yourself or to have it included in any of your holiday gift baskets. You can also substitute it in our wine gift baskets, just make a note in the other info field online or let your order taker know over the phone.
And thanks to the fine folks at Belvoir Fruit Farms!
