Our syrup is hand-crafted in small batches, using fresh-frozen elderberries. More specifically, Sambucus Nigra, which is the European black elderberry. Our fresh-frozen berries are harvested by hand in Europe and flash frozen before shipping to the U.S. This means that our berries are picked at the peak of freshness and carefully handled to ensure they are exceptionally fresh and full of all the good stuff for your syrup!
Additionally, our core family recipe uses only real food ingredients like raw honey from Minnesota beekeepers, real lemon, and ceylon cinnamon. We also use only organic ingredients that we get as locally as possible.

So, why elderberries?
Because elderberries are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants that may offer anti-viral and anti-inflammatory benefits!† Elderberries are an excellent source of Vitamin A (aids immune health) and Vitamin C (also aids immune health). The elderberry also contains high concentrations of anthocyanins which work to reduce swelling and inflammation of the sinuses during a cold or the flu.
Elderberries have documented medicinal usage throughout many cultures, going as far back as Ancient Egypt. And throughout history, the Elder plant has been credited with treating over 60 different diseases or ailments. More recent research has shown that elderberry extracts could inhibit the replication of 11 strains of the influenza virus and increase production of the molecules that help regulate and/or achieve immunity.
