Our Elderflower Vinegar is bottled here in our Nocturne 350ml bottle. Elderflower Vinegar is an extremely rare creation that will delight all who try it, but it is limited in supply by the very nature that elderflowers are not commercially available to buy, you need to pick them by hand. To do this we shut up shop each year and head to the hedgerows, often in West Yorkshire or North of Edinburgh, to gather madly for a day. A few Demijohn cocktails at lunch generally make it quite a popular sport!

How is it best used?

Our vinegar has a similar flavour to a traditional elderflower cordial, but is it definitely sharper and more exciting to taste. It makes a tremendous dressing for salads, either on its own or mixed with a little light Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or a wonderful Vinaigrette with our Lemon Rapeseed Oil. It is also good for dressing fruit salads too, and seriously delicious over ice cream! Like our other fruit vinegars, it can be used as a cordial. One third fruit vinegar, two thirds sparkling mineral water and a little ice is all you will need to keep the stress of hard day at work at bay. Please note that our seasonal Elderflower Vinegar is very popular and we sadly never have enough to satisfy demand.

How is this made?

Picking is really quite a pleasant and realaxing activity, apart from the habit of elder to grow within patches of nettles and brambles. The result is a very prickly and stingy day with a good lunch required to restore morale of the volunteer pickers. Watch our short elderflower picking film to get an idea of what all the fuss is about. The harvested flower heads are then steeped in malt vinegar and sweetened exactly according to Anne Sinclair's carefully crafted recipe.
