We've put this into our liqueur section but Aelder is something beyond a sticky sweet confection of neutral alcohol, some fruit and lots and lots of sugar. Thomas and Rupert are chefs who forage, farm and fish their own produce. They began making an alcoholic drink from elderberries to be drunk at their famous supper clubs in Edinburgh and pretty soon their guests were demanding the right to take bottles home. Over a year in development as they waited for the Autumn harvest, this complex drink has depth enough to be drunk on its own without ice, but equally it jazzes up some fizz. This is made in a kitchen, not a factory, by lovely and highly skilled people.
