Home > Elderberry Schnapps
Elderberry schnapps - based on fully ripe, black elderberries - tastes almost like a good port wine. It's round and fruity with hints of almond, vanilla, and chocolate. The colour is deep purple.
Serve with ice creams, desserts, cakes, all kinds of cheese and cheesecakes.
Or add the schnapps to chutneys, marmalades, teas, pies, cake fillings, sauces and other dishes where you would normally use elderberry.
Very good as aperitif.

turn your elderberry schnapps into a liqueur.
Use fresh, black and fully ripe elderberries.
Pick them right after the first frost, or freeze them for a week or so before use. The frost makes the berries much sweeter.
Remember to defrost them in the vodka.
Note: If for some reason you are not satisfied with your infusion, there are ways to adjust both taste and flavours - click here to see how.
Serve your elderberry schnapps at room temperature in suitable glasses. And remember to keep your schnapps bottle tightly closed and in a dark place before and between servings.
