Elderflower helps to cut through acidic flavours in beer and gives a herbal chamomile-like taste on the end making it very thirst quenching. It has also been described as lending a ‘caramelised marshmallow’ to beer as well as a beautiful yellow to the colour.

Elderflower is surrounded by a profusion of folk lore and stories relating to the use of the wood, berries and flowers, it has more lore associated with it than almost any other herbs, the flowers are said to be more potent if picked on Midsummer’s Eve, and washes for the face have been made by young maidens to help whiten the complexion and stave off freckles.
