Elderflowers are delicate, aromatic flowers that bloom on the elderberry tree (Sambucus nigra), a deciduous shrub native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. These small, creamy-white blossoms are highly prized for their enchanting fragrance in wine and culinary uses.
Apart from their visual beauty, elderflowers possess a unique flavor profile that is floral, mildly sweet, and subtly citrusy. They are often used to infuse various culinary creations and beverages, such as syrups, cordials, liqueurs, teas, and desserts. Elderflower-based beverages like elderflower champagne and elderflower cordial are particularly popular during the summer months. Elderflower brewed on its own has a flavour compared to a muscatel.
Hot elderflowers can also be used for tea, like chamomile, can make a soothing nightcap and is said to offer natural relief for the common cold.
