Reader Treats

The lovely lot at Belvoir Farm has donated a delicious reader treat of their summery Elderflower Cordials. These are great for kids, or as an alternative to booze if you need a break from all that (uh  – nope). However, it turns out the cordials are rather splendid in cocktails too and guess what..? The fab folks at Belvoir Farm have also added a bottle of The Outdoor Guide Gin too – hands off kids!

Just read through some of the fun facts about Belvoir below to enter to win this fab prize. Cheers!

Fun facts about Belvoir:

  • The farm was established in 1981
  • When owners Mary and John Manners realised they could use the overripe, unpicked fruit on their farm to create a delicious soft drink with no additives, elderflower cordials were born. The business is now run by their son Prev.
  • Belvoir Farm was the first company to produce elderflower cordial commercially and it is still made from the original recipe, invented 40 years ago by Mary Manners.
  • Belvoir is now the UK’s No. 1 brand and they produce 20,000 bottles an hour and approx 30 million bottles each year, that are sold across the UK and all over the world.
  • Every June, Leicestershire-based Belvoir Farm calls upon its local community and people from bordering counties, including Cambridgeshire, to help pick the elderflowers they need to make the cordial, in return for payment for each kilo picked.
  • In June there is a crucial picking time the flowers are at their peak for foraging, after the green buds have opened but before any brown discoloration develops. Within 24 hours of harvesting, the flower heads are poured into a vat and hand-stirred gently – and so begins the decades-old tradition of making Belvoir’s much-loved elderflower cordial, from Mary Manner’s original recipe.
