There are various cultivars of the Elder shrub that grow wild in Britain, each producing similar white petal-heads with a fragrant aroma. The infusion we make is from the petals alone, after having carefully shaken them from their green stalks, to ensure absolute purity. The Cuckmere River valley, from which many of the flowers have been collected, is an environmental haven for wildlife since it remains uniquely free from any development along its banks from source to its mouth in the South Downs National Park.

Cucumber (“Cucumis sativus”) originated in India over 3000 years ago. It is part of the gourd family but grows like a vine. In botanical terms it is classed as a berry but grows from a flower and is eaten as a vegetable. A cucumber is 95% water when fully grown.
