As a species native to Europe, elderflowers' uses date back centuries. In Roman times, the roots would be ground into an ointment for rubbing on ailments. In medieval times, it was said that a witch could turn herself into an elder tree, and it's common material for a 'wand' - with the magical properties of an elder wand even being summoned in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In traditional Chinese medicine, it's believed that elder dissolved in wine will treat rheumatism.
In culinary terms, elderflowers' uses are almost as varied. The flowers are most commonly used in syrups and cordials. For many, elderflower cordial or elderflower champagne is a quintessentially British summertime drink, and no afternoon tea, picnic or village fete would be complete without a glass.
