Bottlegreen: founded by husband and wife team Kit and Shireen Morris in 1989, Bottlegreen produces the original elderflower cordial as well as a growing range of soft drinks. Today, much of the elderflower is grown specially and drinks are exported worldwide. Available in stockists nationwide.

Her ‘crop swap’ is a way of sourcing local fruit in return for jam. On sale in local farm shops and delis, including Gloucester Services.
