Ellis Gin was initially created in late 2016 by founder Carol Jackson as the base for the highly successful Gin&Mix cocktails. The gin evolved over a period of 18 months and Ellis Gin officially launched in September 2018 as two flavoured, coloured gins, Scottish Bramble and Butterfly Pea.
Ellis Gin is discreetly distilled by Illicit Spirits in a hidden railway arch in Glasgow. Produced in a 100 litre copper still in small batches but with big flavours. Ellis is a real family affair, named affectionately after Carol’s daughter, each bottle is hand bottled, hand labelled, hand sealed and individually numbered by the family.
Ellis No. 2 is a Scottish Bramble Gin. It is beautifully coloured and naturally flavoured using Scottish brambles, with no additives or colourings, giving it a sweet floral bramble taste. When tonic is added it mysteriously changes from red to a subtle orange.
