I am super guilty of not drinking enough water and always on the hunt for tasty cordials to jazz up water in order to stay hydrated.
I am trying to avoid sugary cordials and so when I was sent 3 bottles of Elderbrook cordials I was looking forward to tasting them.
They don’t add any artificial preservatives or sweeteners or use processed sugar in their drinks. Instead they use coconut nectar to sweeten the cordials naturally. This is more sustainable, is high in vitamins and has a GI almost half that of processed sugar.
- Lime, Mint & Baobab,
- Raspberry, Cranberry & Blueberry
- Mango, Passionfruit & Goji Berry
How it works:
Elderbrook works on a subscription basis whereby you will receive a bottle every two weeks for £4.79 (you can switch flavours at any time).
Each bottle makes ten drinks and you can cancel at any time. You only need a little amount per glass.
At £4.79 it is slightly more expensive than supermarket bottles but you are getting premium flavours and ingredients, a beautiful bottle which is a good size to carry around and which is also really tasty.
The Lime, Mint & Baobab cordial tastes really fresh. Loaded with zingy citrus and fuelled by super fruit powerhouse baobab, which contains three times as much vitamin C as an orange and six times as much potassium as a banana, it tastes good both with still and sparkling water.
Alfonso mango, passion fruit and goji berry. What a dreamy combination! Takes you straight to a tropical island and makes you nostalgic over indian summers. Perfect with Indian food might I add 😉

My favourite was the Lime, Mint and Baobab as it reminded me of Mojitos. Best in a tall glass with ice and sprigs of mint.
These would make great mixers for cocktails too.
I think this is a great concept as the bottle is versatile enough to pack for holidays, picnics (when the weather is good) or to take to work and inspire you to drink more water.
The flavours are fabulous and as it gets delivered to you it is something to look forward to in the post. Who doesn’t love receiving parcels 🙂
The price is slightly higher than supermarket bought cordial but it does taste good and is convenient. You can try one and see how you get on.
