Cramp bark is a deciduous shrub that was first cultivated in Guelderland, a Dutch province[1], and grows four to five metres tall.[2] It is indigenous to England and North America.[1] 

In Norway and Sweden, the berries of cramp bark are used to flavour pastes of honey and flour, and in Siberia they are used to distil spirits from fermented flour.[1] In Canada, the berries are used as a substitute for cranberries when making a piquant jelly.[1] In Turkey, the berries of cramp bark are turned into a traditional beverage known as Gilaburu juice, a water fermented drink, which is rich in acetic acid.[3]

The bark of cramp bark is harvested in the spring and has a strong odour and mildly astringent, bitter taste.[1,4]

In traditional herbal medicine, cramp bark was used in America and Canada, and was employed by the Eclectic practitioners of the 19th century where it was used for a variety of conditions as well as a social beverage.[1-6]
