Thank you for your interest in our company! At Vermont Mountain Elderberry we have been producing our delicious syrup since 2011, and we are proud to be a brand that you and your family enjoy.
Elderberry has been used for thousands of years for its beneficial properties. Hippocrates, the "father of greek medicine," called the elder tree his "medicine chest" way back in 400 A.D. for the wide variety of ailments it seemed to cure. Elderberry has been used by Native Americans as well as Europeans for generations.
Today we recognize that the elderberries healthy properties lie in its high level of vitamins and antioxidants. These come in the form of phenolic acids, flavonoids and anthocyanins. By battling free radicals in the body which make us sick, antioxidants can help with inflammation and can boost our immune system to fight off and recover more quickly from bacterial infection and influenza (the flu). *
We are excited to add a new flavor this year! - Triple Berry syrup- which adds two more powerful berries to the mix, aronia and black currant, both high in antioxidants and vitamins. These super berries blend together to make a healthy and delicious syrup. *
We flavor our Elderberry and Triple Berry Syrup with pure maple syrup from northern Vermont's sugar woods, because Vermonters know that there's no better sugar than maple sugar.
We craft our syrups to be beneficial for you and your family and to taste great for your enjoyment.
