Black European ElderberriesBlack European elderberries (Sambicus Nigra) have been used for centuries to promote wellness and offer immune support dating all the way back to 400 B.C. The Greek doctor Hippocrates documented them for a wide range of uses.
Elderberries are antioxidant rich and high in flavonoids which give them their deep, purple color. They come in a wide range of preparations including syrups, gummies, lozenges, teas, or jellies like our Elderberry and Strawberry Superfood Preserves.

It is important to note that the berries need to be processed or cooked before consumption. Elderberry syrup is one of the most popular ways to get your daily taste. Simply take a spoonful, add it to a smoothie, mix it in your yogurt, or sneak it in your favorite cocktail.


Harbin Hollow founder, Michele Harbin, is a certified nutrition coach who regularly researches whole food diets and ways to promote good health. When she was introduced to elderberry syrup, she headed to her local store to buy some. Unhappy with the brands on the store shelves that were full of sugar and food dyes, she created her own, using all-natural ingredients, leading to the inception of Harbin Hollow.

Holistic and preventative health solutions have become the foundation for living an overall healthy lifestyle at Harbin Hollow which includes clean eating. That is why all six ingredients in our elderberry syrup are whole food ingredients you recognize and can pronounce. They each have a purpose and the mix of ingredients has been said to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant qualities.

Harbin Hollow Elderberry Syrup ingredients are wild-crafted elderberries, local middle Tennessee honey, fresh ginger root, fresh lemons, Ceylon cinnamon sticks, and whole cloves.


The European elderberry, Sambicus Nigra, has been used for centuries to promote wellness and offer immune support. Elderberry-based supplements are believed to work by supplying the body with antioxidants and boosting its natural immune response. [1] Some studies indicate elderberries can stimulate the immune response and stop the replication of viruses within the body.[2] 

The elderberry is the superhero of berries, full of flavonoids. Its flavor is rich and can be compared to that of a blackberry, just a little tarter. We take care of that by adding local, middle Tennessee honey to sweeten our elderberry syrup. Of course, honey does a lot more than add some sweetness!
