AELDER - The Versatile Festive Tipple Created From Scotland's Wild Larder

Move over gin, there's a new drink on the bar that's destined to be top of every food & drink lover's gift list this festive season - Aelder.

Handcrafted in small batches Aelder infuses wild Scottish elderberries with a host of Scottish botanicals and spices before blending with young Scottish whisky.

The result is a rich, dark and complex liqueur, that is just as perfect enjoyed neat in front of a roaring fire as it is topped up with fizz for an indulgent Yuletide aperitif.

Five years in development by the duo behind the Buck and Birch pop up dining experiences, Aelder was finally launched last November and the response was incredible. Fast forward a year and Aelder is now an award-winning elixir building a following of celebrity chefs, sommeliers and mixologists from the top restaurants and bars around the country.

It is a testament to its versatility that Aelder has been delighting diners paired with the best game dishes, desserts and cheese boards as well as inspiring a multitude of contemporary cocktails and libations whipped up by the drink world's elite.

Beautifully presented in a black ceramic bottle, Aelder is a sophisticated drink based on an age-old recipe with a contemporary twist, using produce from Scotland's natural wild larder.

This is a liqueur like no other, born in a kitchen not a laboratory and from a passion for showcasing the very best of the Scottish wilds.

RRP £25.00- £28.00 Per 500 ML 17% ABV. Available from Harvey Nichols, online at buckandbirch.com and from selected independent retailers including Royal Mile Whiskies. Full list of stockists on aelderelixir.com
