Aelder Wild Elderberry Elixir 500ml - The Buck & Birch

The Buck & Birch

Aelder Wild Elderberry Elixir 500ml


Resurrected from the embers of the past, sparked with imagination and stoked with an obsession for Scotland’s natural wild larder, each bottle of Aelder is testament to nature’s brilliance. A truly unique, sophisticated and contemporary elixir, Aelder excels in elevating many of Scotland’s forgotten ingredients back into the contemporary consciousness.

Created by Rupert Waites, head chef and chief forager at The Buck & Birch, Aelder was one of numerous wild flavour experiments developed in 'The Shed'. Handcrafted in small batches from hedgerow to elixir, Aelder is deep, complex, fruity and decidedly moreish. The dark, rich fruit of the elder is complemented by a host of wild Scottish botanicals and spices, before being blended with Scottish whisky to fully enliven the flavour of the foraged berries.

The end result is a liqueur that is rich, smooth and complex with a beautifully warming finish. Aelder is both distinctive and versatile. It can just as easily be enjoyed neat in front of a roaring fire as it can be sipped in a sparkling cocktail bathed in the summer sun. Drunk neat it’s an easy sipper from a warm glass on a cold night and makes a fantastic alternative to Port. Try it in a Kir-style drink, topped up with Prosecco for an indulgent twist or add to any cocktail where a dark fruit hit is needed. Or keep it true to its natural origins and pair with game.
