› 4-Reasons to love it
– Is elderflower English ? From a French point of view, it is as this beverage keep unfoundable in any shops there. What a beautiful discovery.
– As fine as wine: not that hard anymore to replace a fresh glass of white wine when work is finished.
– Sunny warmth : the secret of its taste? to use masses of flowers picked in the sunshine when they are warm and heavy with yellow pollen.
– Natural and family run: despite the success of the firm, the recipe remains 100% natural. Every bottle contains about eight elderflowers, all harvested in UK between May and June.
› The story
From just 500 bottles 30 years ago, the business has known an amazing growth, celebrating its 20 million bottle at the end of 2014. Production has long since moved out of the family kitchen and down to the fruit farm, located on the beautiful estate of Belvoir Castle in Grantham, Lincolnshire. Belvoir has something French also, as its name comes from the translation of Beautiful view many decades ago.
