Elderflower gin is a great way of making the most of the bountiful elderflower plant. A quick twenty-four hours will be enough time to infuse your gin with the wonderfully floral scent of spring! Adjust the sugar levels if you prefer something sweeter, of feel free to add lemon peel or a vanilla pod for a twist.
