A Dash of Fresh Elderflowers

The wild, natural sweetness of fresh, handpicked elderflowers gives St Germain a transformative flavour; indulgent, yet delicate with a fresh natural sweetness and notes of pear and honeysuckle. Brilliant in a Spritz, or why not add a dash of ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your favorite cocktail, gin & tonic or sparkling wine?
