D'Arbo Elderflower Syrup 500mlSalusbury Food Store, NW6 (020 7328 3287), 3.30

Elderflower: classic summer cordial

Very sugary and intensely floral. Doesn't take much syrup to flavour water.

Belvoir Organic Elderflower Cordial 37.5cl, 2.99

Low in sugar with a good citrus tang. Nicest flavour, but a lot of cordial needed.

Bottle Green Elderflower cordial 50cl, 2.29

Telegraph - Menswear/Shoes

An odd diesel smell and super-sweet.

Rocks Organic Elderflower Cordial Fresh & Wild, NW1 (020 7428 7575), 36cl, 2.89

Pungent, woody, mulchy smell is a turn-off.
