Cordials are syrups made with fresh fruits, herbs, spices, and/or flowers to preserve seasonal flavors. You can use them in drinks, desserts, and even on your favorite pancakes. They come with a recipe booklet containing about 30 recipes!

We also have some new flavors: Chamomile Cordial, Pineapple Sage Cordial, & Elder Syrup. These are available in the 187ml bottles only.
Chamomile Cordial: This cordial is made with both fresh and dried chamomile flowers. You've never really tasted chamomile until you've tried the fresh flowers - they have a scent and flavor reminiscent of tart green apple. This one makes a lovely tea and would be wonderful in cocktails, plus chamomile is great for reducing anxiety and promoting restful sleep.
Pineapple Sage Cordial: This cordial is made with fresh Pineapple Sage leaves and flowers. Pineapple Sage is a plant in the sage family with lovely red flowers in the fall which taste like pineapple. It has been used in Mexico and Central America for depression, and while we don't have any data to back that up, the lovely fragrance and pink color are sure to brighten your mood.
Elder Syrup: Elderflowers and elderberries have been used for centuries for colds, flu, and to support the immune system. This syrup combines the benefits of both with a touch of ginger and honey. For immune support use the following amounts, or double the amount if you're fighting off a virus:
Ages 1-3: ¼ teaspoon daily -- Ages 4-adult: 1 teaspoon daily

Cordials make great gifts! Add on a gift box (either small or large) to give two bottles as a gift. Each gift box is made from kraft (brown) cardboard, holds two bottles of cordial, and has our logo on the back, with "windows" on the front to show the cordial flavors. There is enough room in the box to include the recipes and a small package of candied ginger or elderflower tea as well.
