To create delicious drinks, and share them with as many people as possible!
How we go about this is very important to us. All of our cordials are handmade in small batches, and we do our best to use ingredients which are locally sourced, foraged or grown by us.
Why do we care about this? We like to know where our ingredients have come from. We have worked with many of our local suppliers from the beginning, and know exactly where and how the fruit has been grown.
We also hate waste! Some of our fruit is from allotment surplus that would otherwise not be used (we swap it for cordial of course!) We hate the idea of so called 'ugly' fruit going to waste, and we often will use this in our recipes.
Seasons are good! We love to use fruit that is in season and at its best, this means our flavours change throughout the year and not all of our flavours are available all year round. The fact that we make our cordials seasonally and in small batches allows us to respond to the seasons and fruit availability and make limited amounts of flavours that would otherwise not be possible.
Being outside is good for the soul! We love the great outdoors, and so have designed a business where we get to be outside collecting delicious ingredients and using natures bounty.
So where can you find us?
Well we pop up at many different events through the country with our mobile bar, The Hedgerow Cordials Drinks Bar. Here we serve our yummy cordials creations, both as soft drinks and also alcoholic cocktails.
If you would like our bar at your event please get in touch. We can cater for both private and public events. If you would like to find out where we will be then have a look at our calendar.
The Word From The Hedge
We, of course, think The Hedgerow Cordials Drinks Bar and all of our cordials are great! Some might say though we are a little biased, so don’t take our word for it – here is what people have told us;
“We hired The Hedgerow Cordials Drinks Bar for our wedding reception. The cocktails when we got back from the church were a real highlight, and something all our guests enjoyed!” – Diana Compson
“It was fantastic to have the delicious Hedgerow Cordials at our wedding. Everyone absolutely loved the fantastic flavours, and they went down particularly well the morning after too!” – Jessica Easterbrook.
“We served up Hedgerow Cordials to about eighty guests at a lunch after our wedding. They went to good use; there were a lot of good words for the Chilli and Lime in particular – highly recommended!” – Simon Traill.
“We initially ordered them so the kids wouldn’t feel left out, but the adults couldn’t keep their hands off them, with the exotic Chilli and Lime being a big hit.” – Allan Baxter
“We hired The Hedgerow Cordials Drinks Bar at the recent opening evening of our exhibition as our soft drink option. We had several flavours all of them unusual and all a great hit, particularly the Wild Nettle which was exceptional.” – Suffolk Fine Arts
“Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the Chilli and Lime cordial with sparkling water, not just as as an alternative to alcohol but as an original tasting drink in its own right.” – David and Mary Burr.
“It was lovely to see all our friends and family enjoying Hedgerow Cordials at our wedding, they went down a treat, everyone loved trying the unique flavours, and we had so many comments on how gorgeous the bottles were as well. Adding them to our gin punch got the evening do off to a great start too!” – Aimee Richards
