This Bottlegreen Elderflower Cordial is the beverage that first introduced me to elderflower in the early 2010s and has had me hooked ever since.
The cordial is a translucent pale yellow colour with a pleasantly crisp floral nose. Diluted at a ratio of 1:10 in chilled still water, a sweetness comes through immediately in the head before the floral notes develop in the body ahead of a slightly dry finish and no lingering aftertaste. The floral notes of elderflower light and refreshing, comparable to that of lychee, but more acidic and sweeter. When diluted with sparkling water, the bubbles cut through some of the acidity and sweetness, reminding of a sparkling apple juice.
This bottle of Bottlegreen Elderflower Cordial contained 500 ml. It was produced in Australia and purchase in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
