Elderflower Fizz has to be one of the countryside’s best kept secrets.
This is our six bottle Sparkling wine starter kit which will give you everything you need to make 6 bottles of gorgeous Elderflower Fizz from dried Elderflowers. After using the dried ingredients and come May time, all the equipment and chemicals can then be re-used with fresh flowers to make either more fizz or 12 bottles of any country wine.
We include a recipe leaflet for our tried and tested version of Elderflower Sparkling wine and recommend that you re-cycle, beg or borrow used sparkling wine bottles which is really the only way to store Elderflower Fizz – hence we provide you with 6 stoppers and cages to bottle your finished sparkling wine in style. A good tip is to ask your local hotels to save bottles from wedding receptions.

A 5 Gallon scaled Fermentation Bucket and Lid
2 x 1 Gallon PET Demijohns with grommet caps
A Syphon pack to syphon your sparkling wine into bottles
