Our wild elderflower has a delightful aroma with slight sweet closing notes and is foraged at 2,200m above sea level from the forest of Odzun, in the Lori region of Armenia, by hand. Compared to standard elderflower, our elderflower is more pungent in aroma and more delicate in taste, due to altitude and purer growing conditions.

The name ‘elder’ is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word ‘æld’, meaning fire as the hollow stems of young branches would be used to encourage fires. Elderflower is native to Europe, Northern Africa, and Western and Central Asia, with a long history of traditional medicinal use among European herbalists, documented in the writings of Hippocrates, Dioscorides, and Pliny the Elder. Medieval Armenian herbalists would use elderflower as a remedy for treating cold and flu symptoms, as well as improving immunity during the sickness. At present, elderflower is used in traditional medicine as an herbal remedy for the treatment and prevention of upper respiratory tract infections and other symptoms associated with colds and the flu.
