A delivery of a little bottle from Hedgerow Cordials was a lovely treat to get the other day! A bottle of Hedgerow Cordials Victoria Plum Cordial to try was very exciting for myself – particularly as a keen forager! The emblem of the quirky owl on the bottle is fun too!

I tried my Victoria Plum cordial two ways to experiment. Firstly with hot water and a squeeze of lemon for a hot winter evening warmer – very tasty! And then with a little fizzy water and cold water for a refreshing drink on a warmer day – flavourful and natural. I liked the fact that the ingredients were natural and that the taste was pure and simple. All in all a fab product – I think I shall try the Rhubarb and Ginger one next!
