What is bilberry drops?

Bilberry fruit are smaller than that of the blueberry, darker in colour or nearly black with a hint of purple. The leaves resemble those of the myrtle, hence its Latin name of Vaccinium myrtillus. The leaves and stems are used in this fresh herb tincture.

Bilberry belongs to the plant genus known as Vaccinium with several other related species which look similar. Common names used for Bilberry include myrtle blueberry, winberry, windberry and whortleberry. In Ireland, bilberry is referred to as fraguhan. Tradition has it that the fruit is collected on the last Sunday in July when it is ripe – on Fraughan Sunday.
