To celebrate a great Elderflower season Bottlegreen have brought out some gorgeous limited edition bottles for both the elderflower cordial and the elderflower sparkling presse.
Started back in 1989, with the dream of making fine wines from locally grown Elderflower, but first a cordial was made, which changed the plans forever due to its fresh and delicious taste. Bottlegreen now produce 18,000,000 bottles each year in 22 different verities and is sold across the globe.
I have to admit although I have tried the presse before I hadn’t tired the cordial so this was a partially new experience for me.
I am rather fond of the presse; refreshing, light and slightly sparkling it is gorgeous on a warms summers day to help cool you down. I think this has to be one of the most refreshing drinks I have come across it really does seem to rehydrate you, I got really over heated in the garden and I came back to have a glass of this gorgeous stuff on ice – pure bliss!
I have to admit I didn’t get on with the cordial at all, I tried it in a few different ways, highly diluted – not very diluted with lemon and lime and I just couldn’t get the taste for it, my Mum on the other hand loved it and found my face pulling very entertaining so kept passing me new glasses to try it in another way. It obviously works for some people in this format and is well loved I just can’t get my head around it, good job I had the presse to turn to.
You can grab yourself a bottle of either of these from all major supermarkets.
Elderflower Sparkling Presse (750ml) is priced from £2.39
while the Elderflower Cordial (500ml) is priced from £3.15
