Prunus Elixir 200ml
Being made from sloes, I had thought this would be quite sharp, instead it is a very sweet syrup. Sugar (albeit raw cane) is listed first in the ingredients which accounts for the sweetness. Not something I will use as I avoid sugar as it can reduce immunity. I will try the prunus tincture.
