One of the best-selling flavours in Germany because of the popularity of the Hugo Cocktail, Monin Elderflower Syrup delivers the fragrant aroma and tart, juicy flavour of these creamy-white flowers.
Often consumed as a cordial or a liqueur, both are crafted from the flowers of the Elder or Elderberry tree, commonly found in the English countryside. The English saying goes that summer is not here until the Elder is fully in flower and that it is at an end when the berries are ripe.
This European favourite lends its delicate scent to a wide variety of popular food and drink recipes. Monin Elderflower Syrup gives sweet floral highlights to sparkling wine cocktails and plays well with the juniper flavour of gin.
